Tremendous exhibits topped by the mesmeric bust of Nefertiti. This museum needs a whole day. Don't try and do two museums in one day. You would miss so much.

Astonishing renovation of this crippled jewel, reopened in 2009, very thorough exhibition of the Egyptian Collection, with many highlights, esp Nefertiti's Bust and the Green Head among many many others. The building itself is dazzling and a very moving testament to both its damage during WWII and its painstaking renovation. There's a nice book for 7.5 Euros in the gift... More

It is a huge and very nice museum, you need time to check all the collections, there are 2 floors and many rooms to visit, of course the main attraction is the face of Nefertiti

Lovely museum - well laid out with plenty of information a. We took advantage of the ear sets which were very informative. Nice Cafe if you needed a drink or snack. Took 2-3 hours to go round the whole exhibition.

Allow 2-3 hours of leisurely progress through this magnificent museum - it is a treasure trove of artefacts and interesting facts and information. Re-opening in 2009, the museum is home to a plethora of objects from Egypt - including grave goods, mummies, sarcophagi etc. One room is devoted to an eclectic Papyrus collection and there are Prehistory and Early History...

I've visited many, many museums throughout Europe and the bust of Nefertiti is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. The way the museum has the bust displayed and lit is just amazing. Sadly this was the only museum we were able to see in Berlin and we didn't have nearly enough time (1.5 hours) - I'd say... More

The newly opened "Neues Museum, one of a collection on the Museum Insel - Berlin is an outstanding example of how an old beautiful building can be renovated and brought back to use in its original glory. The contents of the museum are shown off by the old and the new rooms- This museum is easier to visit than the... 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.
