Museum Island is a magnificent work of art involving five world-renowned museums along the Spree River. We purchased The Berlin Pass to visit each of the attractions. The pass also gives you access to art galleries, historic buildings, and other places of interest in the city.
Don't miss a walk along the East Side Gallery, the former Berlin Wall, is now covered in murals and artwork done by artists from around the world.
Berlin is rich in culture and history. The Brandenburg Gate, the most important landmark of Germany, serves as a symbol of the once divided city.
When we reached the Holocaust Memorial, located one block from the Brandenburg Gate, we were reminded of the six million murdered Jews and the rise of Hitler's Germany during World War II.
The dome at the top of Reichstag, the historic German Parliament, was built as a symbol of reunification and is a spectacular site. The mirrored glass dome is an energy efficient structure, and the rooftop terrace provides views of Tiergarten, Berlin Cathedral, and the Berlin TV Tower in Alexanderplatz.
