1. Explore Museum Island

With so many spectacular museums in one city, experiencing the art and history of Berlin is a must. Head to Museum Island to see all the great museums the city has to offer. It was built as a sort of museum complex on the river Spree, and it’s even been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some of the museums to visit include the Alte Nationalgalerie, the Altes Museum, the Pergamon Museum, and the Bode Museum. If you’re a real museum lover, pick up the 3-day pass and enjoy everything the island has to offer. As an added bonus, you can also see the Berlin Cathedral, also known as the Berliner Dome, while on the island.
