I love to visit old historical places. Lots of art but as we had booked our glass roof visit had to rush.

Unbelievable collection of historic remains collected in old Egypt; Persia etc. Makes you think of Indiana Jones when he resisted the Germans steeling all the artefacts... Book your tickets upfront !

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
