Museum Island is home to some of Berlin's finest museums, including the Pergamon Museum, the National Gallery and the Altes Museum. Museum Island lies between the River Spree and Kupfergraben. The development of the island started with the construction of the Alltes Museum, which was opened to the public for the first time in 1830. The final museum to be opened on the Island was the Pergamon Museum in 1930. The Museum Island was almost completely destroyed during World War II.

The German History Museum is situated in one of Berlin's finest baroque buildings. The idea behind the museum is to enable the German people to gain a better understanding of who they as Germans and Europeans. The Museum holds numerous collections of artefacts from the ninth century to the present, all depicting German history and it's relationship with European history.

Alexanderplatz is one of Berlin's most famous squares and is a must for any visitor. Since the end of Communist rule in the former East Germany, Alexanderplatz has undergone numerous changes and much "Westernisation". The mix of East and West is clear to see in this fascinating part of Berlin.
