Apartments close to the Berlin Museumsinsel: The Ideal Choice For Art Lovers

There is a paradise in Berlin called "Museumsinsel" for those who love art, culture and history. The name means literally "Museum Island", and refers to a central island in the Mitte district of the German capital, where one of the most famous museum areas in the world is located. If you want to get lost in the splendid architectural jewels and heritage conservation corridors, with a unique view of the River Spree, then you cannot miss the Museumsinsel. In the middle of the 19th century, King Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia dedicated this central area of the German city to art and science, although it was once a residential area. Since then, several museums were established in this picturesque area of the city which has impressive buildings. In addition, the Museumsinsel comprises the Lustgarten park and the Berlin Cathedral, and is adjacent to the striking Palace of the Republic. The variety of art works, historical objects, and architectural elements that you can contemplate in this area of the city is inexhaustible; ancient architecture in the Pergamon Museum, archaeological objects in the Neues Museum, Greek and Roman objects in the Altes Museum, paintings up to the 1800s in the Bode Museum and 19th century paintings in the Alte Nationalgalerie. This is why Unesco declared the Museumsinsel complex a World Heritage Site in 1999.
