Berlin has around 175 museums and about 300 art galleries for its visitors. The Berlin Museum Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, five museums form the largest museum ensemble in the world.

In the historic centre of the capital, the newly opened Humboldt Forum – in the dimensions of the historic Berlin Palace – is home to top-class art collections, exhibitions and idea workshops.

The world's largest assembled dinosaur skeleton, more than 13 metres high, is also in Berlin. You can find it in the Museum of Natural History. In addition, you can take a tour here to explore the development of life on our planet and the history of the origin of the universe.

Lovers of masterpieces of European painting will find a mix of priceless paintings from the Middle Ages and early modern times from Botticelli to Rembrandt to Dürer in the Gemäldegalerie.

The steel-and-glass architecture of the Neue Nationalgalerie, designed by Mies van der Rohe, delights visitors today, as it did 50 years ago. The works of great artists of the 20th century are exhibited, in addition to exciting temporary exhibitions.
