Berlin's Famous Museum Island ~ Spectacular

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors CBURE#0406046

As we made our way around Berlin this past summer I was intrigued with Museum Island which is located between the Spree River and the Kupfergraben. There are five uniquely designed museums displayed for the general public to view the royal treasures of Germany. King Friedrich Wilhelm 111 commissioned the construction of the Royal Museum – now called the Altes Museum in 1830.Berlins Museum Islane


Almost 70% of the buildings were destroyed during World War 11 and after the war the collections were split up between East and West Berlin.


The five museums comprising Museum Island are as follows:

 

 Alte Nationalgalerie

 Bode Museum

 Altes Museum

 Neues Museum

 Pergamon Museum

 

 

 



The Master Plan for the full-scale renovation and modernization of the area, adopted and underway since 1999 aims to turn the site into a state-of-the-art cultural location by 2015 and I for one can tell you they have done an excellent job thus far!

 

P.S.  If you’re considering the sale or purchase of a home in NW Austin, I would love the opportunity to earn your business and exceed your expectations.

Beautiful water feature. War leaves many scars and it is wonderful to see them return the beauty.
