We visit Berlin, the capital of Germany and the largest city. It is a city of culture and home to world-renowned universities, orchestras, museums. The ensemble on the Museum Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is in the northern part of the Spree Island between the Spree and the Kupfergraben. As early as 1841 it was designated a "district dedicated to art and antiquities" by a royal decree. Subsequently, the Altes Museum was built in the Lustgarten. The Neues Museum, which displays the bust of Queen Nefertiti, Alte Nationalgalerie, Pergamon Museum, and Bode Museum were built there. We focus on the great museum collections of Egyptian, Classical, and Near Eastern art in Berlin.
