Berlin's Museum Island is one of the most important museum complexes in Europe. Five of the most important museums are located in immediate vicinity to each other on the island on the Spree: Among other things, the New Museum exhibits the bust of Nefertiti, the Pergamon Museum has the impressive Pergamon Altar on display and the Old Museum awaits you with a fascinating collection of antiquities. The Old National Gallery shows sculptures and paintings from the 19th century and the Bode Museum impresses with Byzantine art and a coin cabinet.
In cooperation with the DDR Museum, the City Hotel Berlin East has organised an exclusive special exhibition of original GDR objects. The exhibits on display tell the stories behind mass sports, living culture, holidays and political careers in the GDR. An enormous illustration (15 x 2 m) tells you more about the GDR housing programme and the resulting prefab buildings in our hotel's neighbourhood.
If you want to find out more, we recommend to directly visit the DDR Museum at Museum Island in Berlin Mitte. In 2016, the museum added the topic "Life in a Tower Block" , that shows life in an authentically reconstructed WBS 70 prefab flat. The Museum's motto is "Living History" - throughout the whole exhibition, you are invited to touch and try out the objects. Take a virtual ride in a Trabi, get dressed in original GDR clothes or zap through the GDR TV programme to experience the Republic as if you were there. Get more info
