As I only spent a short time in Berlin, I only got to visit one museum and I chose this museum because I love Egyptian history. The price was very reasonable and as a student I got it half price. You can also get group tickets so you can visit a couple of the surrounding museums at a discounted rate.... More

We really only visited this museum to see Nefertiti's bust, but it proved to be an interesting afternoon as there is so much to see! The building itself is huge and very aesthetically pleasing. There are 4 levels all of which have a plenty of interesting artifacts and Nefertiti did not disappoint!

Need several hours there is so much to see. The audio guide is currently being developed for some rooms but still very very useful. Remarkable amount of artefacts and the history of them from origin to now offers a fascinating story. Nefertiti is transfixing and without seeing anything else it would have been worth the visit. Remember under 18s are... More

The queue is insane if you do not book before. A little over priced at €12 for and adult. We didn't do the audio tour so sped around and did not really get too much out of it. If you have ever been to Egypt it's not really worth it, as much of the exhibit is casts and recreations of... More

The best museum in Berlin. Every room is breath taking even without objects. Great and interesting things to see, but Nefertiti is perfect! I could go there every day!

The Neues Museum and its opening marked an important chapter in the history of 19th-century art, museum design, and technology. It was designed by Friedrich August Stüler and built from 1843 to 1855. The building was severly damaged during World War II, after which it was left as an abandoned bombsite by the East German Goverment. Emergency measures to keep... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
