Berlin 2014

Berlin - Part I

We decided to travel by car) We stayed at the Leonardo Hotel in Berlin , it's not so expensive but very comfortable. At first we went to Museum Island (German: Museumsinsel), there are 5 museums but we visited only 3 of them. 

  • The Altes Museum (Old Museum) completed on the orders of Karl Friedrich Schinkel in 1830.
  • The Neues Museum (New Museum) finished in 1859 according to plans by Friedrich August Stüler, a student of Schinkel. Destroyed inWorld War II, it was rebuilt under the direction of David Chipperfield for the Egyptian Museum of Berlin and re-opened in 2009.
  • The Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery) completed in 1876, also according to designs by Friedrich August Stüler, to host a collection of 19th-century art donated by banker Joachim H. W. Wagener
  • The Bode Museum on the island's northern tip, opened in 1904 and then called Kaiser-Friedrich-Museum. It exhibits the sculpture collections and late Antique and Byzantine art.
  • The Pergamon Museum, the final museum of the complex, constructed in 1930. It contains multiple reconstructed immense and historically significant buildings such as the Pergamon Altar and the Ishtar Gate of Babylon.       


       Also we went to Sony center, is a Sony-sponsored building complex located at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin.
