For a rare look at the iconic bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti, visit Neues Museum on the city's famous Museum Island. The museum houses vast collections of prehistoric and ancient Egyptian artifacts. The building itself draws both art and architecture enthusiasts with its award-winning use of modern iron construction and original Neoclassical design. Originally built between 1843 and 1855, it was designed by architect Friedrich August Stuler. The museum was closed in 1939 and was heavily damaged during the bombing raids of the city. Architect David Chipperfield spearheaded the post-war rebuilding efforts, and the museum finally reopened in 2009. Skip the long lines by booking your tickets online.

  • Probably the most beautiful museum in the city. The building itself is a huge part of the experience with it's award-winning architecture! The exhibits are huge and the audio commentary make for a complete and informative tour. Finally, the amazing Nefertiti bust is just mesmerizing. A must stop!
  • Incredible, just incredible. The building is stunning, the attention to detail on every level is just breathtaking. The displays are beautifully laid out and wondering round this museum is just a delight. Expect your neck to hurt from all the twisting you'll be doing as you try to take in this building from every angle imaginable.
