The district of Berlin-Mitte awaits with a multitude of fascinating cultural treasures. One of the most important is without question the world-famous Museum Island on the northern tip of the island in the Spree. In 1999 it becamea UNESCO World Heritage site and has since been further developed into a modern museum quarter.
The ensemble of architecturally magnificent buildings houses exhibits from prehistoric and ancient times to the art of the 19th century, including some of the most important artworks in mankind’s history, such as the Pergamon Altar and the bust of Nefertiti in the Neues Museum. Being created now on the Spree island with the reconstruction of Berlin City Palace as the ‘Humboldtforum’ is a public meeting place of international art, culture and science – another highlight just a stone’s throw from the Klostergärten.
