Tour 4 – Museums

Berlin has a lot of interesting museums besides the Museum Island (Tour 5). Recommendations:


Tour 5 – Museum Island

We will have dinner meanwhile at Berlin Friedrichstraße station because these exhibitions will take a lot of time (we could stay there the whole day!). Entrance fee for all museums on en:Museum Island (UNESCO World Heritage) is 18.— €, discounted admission 9.— € (students and others) — do not forget evidence!

Afterwards we can visit (please choose):

  1. en:Bode Museum and/or en:Alte Nationalgalerie (included in the entrance fee) and/or en:Berlin Cathedral at Museum Island (depends on our remaining time)
  2. en:Deutsches Historisches Museum (five minutes to go from Museum Island); 8.— €, discounted admission 4.– € (students and others)
  3. en:Museum für Naturkunde (the largest mounted dinosaur skeleton in the world, "Berlin Specimen" of Archaeopteryx lithographica, etc.); 6.- €, discounted admission 3.50 € (students and others) — going through en:Oranienburger Straße, passing en:New Synagogue (Berlin) (free entrance)
Tour 6 – Main sights in the inner-city

  2. John Andersson (WMSE) (talk) 08:11, 4 November 2013 (UTC) I would love "Tour 6 – Main sights in the inner-city" as this is my first time in Berlin. I was hoping to squeeze in a meeting with the WMDE staff and visit their office in the morning (perhaps I could join an hour later or so if needed?).
