Museum Island Museumsinsel, Berlin: 46 reviews and 76 photos

In 1999 UNESCO added Museum Island to their list as a World Heritage Site. You only have to have the most fleeting of glances to see why.

Museum Island is a little island in the River Spree and it's actually here where Berlin's settlement first began, in the Middle Ages.

On the island you will find Pergamonmuseum, Bodemuseum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Neues Museum, Altes Museum, Berliner Dom, Lustgarten, Palast der Republik, Schlossbrucke & Schlossplatz.

At the moment there are major renovations going on and the work is said to continue until at least 2010. Until that time you will probably get big cranes in all your pictures and you may not be able to visit all of the museums.
