In 1999, the Museumsinsel in the heart of Berlin was added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. That same year, the comprehensive refurbishment of this unique ensemble of institutions from the 19th and early 20th century was announced, and has since been gradually carried out. This tour offers a glimpse into the history and the future of the Museumsinsel, and features highlights from the Neues Museum and the Pergamonmuseum.
Highlights include the Bust of Nefertiti and the Berlin Golden Hat at the Neues Museum, and the Ishtar Gate and the Processional Way of Babylon at the Pergamonmuseum.
After the tour, participants can visit the museums of the Museumsinsel until closing.
Participant numbers limited. Tickets can be booked online and purchased at the James-Simon-Galerie, group tickets in the upstairs foyer.
