An island covered with museums is just one of the many cultural must-sees that Berlin has to offer

Sitting on the grass of the emblematic Lustgarden we can sight the buildings in the Museum Island (Museumsilnsel), created in 1829 by German architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Get ready to dive in history, more or less contemporary, enriching yourself culturally with a journey that will take from Greek mythology to Andy Warhol’s Pop Art, passing by Queen Nefertiti Bust. And since the subject is museums, there’s a mandatory visit to the Jewish Museum, which has in store for us an interactive journey to the Jewish saga, inside the walls of one of the most praised architectural projects worldwide. One example of that is the House of World Cultures, one of the major exhibition centres of non European art, which promotes dance and theatre shows, artistic performances, fine arts, cinema and music. And it is exactly to open air concerts that you can attend throughout the summer, by the end of the day. And if you have the chance, don’t miss out on a Berliner Philharmoniker concert. Be also aware of Guggenheim’s cultural program and of what Moabit Hamburger Bahnhof (a former train station which is today a museum of contemporary art) has to suggest, as well as of what is going on in Heide Strasse, a street with numerous contemporary art galleries. Aside from institutional cultural offers, there’s an alternative circuit relying on abandoned houses, transformed into improvised cultural centres, where various artists show their work. Haus Schwarzenberg is a fine example of that fondness for the art.
