Cultural tips in Berlin: Berlin for cultural tourists, museum visitors and world heritage seekers

The Museumsinsel (Museum Island) in Berlin's Mitte district with their five building complexes in the middle of the Spree has been declared a UNESCO world cultural heritage site. The most famous and most beautiful inhabitant of the Museumsinsel is Nefertiti who is displayed in an impressive setting in the Neues Museum. In the DDR Museum and the House at Checkpoint Charlie you retrace the steps of recent German history, the Neue Nationalgalerie presents art of the 20th century and the spectacular museum construction of the Jewish Museum by Daniel Libeskind is certainly a highlight of Berlin's museum landscape.

The big stage in the Deutsches Theater or Berliner Ensemble, classic operas and modern productions at the Deutsche Oper Berlin – if you want to experience amazing culture you are spoilt for choice. Small stages, independent theatre in the courtyard, open air plays – this can be found in the Hexenkessel Hoftheater in Monbijoupark in Berlin-Mitte, in Scheinbar in Schöneberg and Mehringhoftheater in Kreuzberg.

Major concerts take place on the large stage at O2 World Berlin in Friedrichshain; at the Wuhlheide open air theatre you can party hard and wild in the open air. And the numerous parks, open air cinemas, cafés and beach bars make Berlin a special place in summer. A highlight is definitely the bathing boat in Treptow with its pool in the River Spree and hot DJ evenings.
