Berlin: Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour with Optional Cruise
- Duration: 2 days
- Optional audio guide
Museum Island is worth a visit for the architecture alone, with Berlin's biggest and best exhibits shared between colossal structures that include the city's old cathedral. Here are some of the highlights among the various collections!
Not a real "Eisenwalzwerk" of course, but one of Adolf Menzel's most brutally atmospheric paintings. It's exhibited alongside many German masterpieces at the Alte Nationalgalerie.
All the museums are open from 9:00AM to 6:00PM, and until 8:00PM on Thursdays. They are closed on Mondays except for the Pergamon Museum and Neues Museum which are open all week. If you can't decide between exhibitions, consider starting with a walking tour of the area to learn more about the buildings themselves, or get free tickets for 3 days with the Berlin Museum Pass!
Museum Island is just a short walk from both Friedrichstrasse (S + U Bahns) and Hackescher Markt (S Bahn) stations. There are also buses to nearby Friedrichstrasse (147), Staatsoper (TXL), and Lustgarten (100, 200), as well as trams to Hackescher Markt (M4, M5, M6) and Am Kupfergraben (M1, 12).

The audio guide comes in different languages and was part of the admission ticket, take advantage of it. I came in at 4 pm but had 2:30 pm slot, had no trouble going in. Highly recommend not just to see world famous Nefertiti bust but to see how they restored or reconstructed after WWII damage.
jess was a very informative and great tour guide throughout the duration of the walking tour. we have learned a lot about the city of Berlin and its History thanks to him! I highly recommend it should you plan to visit the capital city and have a great knack for History and stories.
Fähige Führung mit super Wissen über Berlin, Berliner Geschichte und die Entwicklung von Berlin uns nah gebracht hat. Hervorragend. Kurzweilig. Competente guided tour. We learned about the history and development of Berlin. An amazing tour.
Zeer bijzondere kunstcollectie uit de Oudheid, en bakermat van onze beschaving. Prachtige objecten. Ook de Islamitische antieke kunst is bijzonder en geeft stof tot nadere beschouwing.
Tour bus starting place good, driver very professional and audioguide was nicely informative.
