I had been looking forward to visiting this museum the most when planning my trip to Berlin. It contains some brilliant artefacts and well displayed items. The attitude of the staff unfortunately ruined the entire experience and we left before finishing viewing. I was shouted at twice in German, aggressively and for trivial issues. I was followed around by staff... More

I was with an Egyptology study group visiting museums in Europe with Egyptian antiquities in their collections. The Neues Museum in Berlin is famous for its display of a portrait head of Queen Nefertiti, wife to the monotheistic King Akhenaten, and other artifacts from the Amarna Period so our first stop in Berlin was there. We were given an orientation... More

Lots to see. Best bit is seeing the new building incorporated into the old bombed and shot at structure.

What a fantastic experience. Line for tickets was very short, we walked right in to get our headsets. The audio tour was very informative and the entire museum was incredible! We unfortunately did not spend enough time as we should have, but you could spend all day here! GREAT!

The location keep the signs of the WWII but give itself the taste of acrheological discovery, not focusing only... More

The Neue Museum building has been beautifully and sympathetically restored. The audio guide is very informative and interesting. We spent three hours looking at the exhibits in the lovely building. The Nefertiti bust is simply stunning.This museum is a must for all fans of Early,Greek and Egyptian history

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.
