Since I started working late yesterday I used the time to
visit some of Berlins museums. I went to Museumsinsel, where you can find several
museums next to each other. I made it to ‚Alte Nationalgalerie‘. It’s a
beautiful impressive building with paintings from the age of goethe via
idealism through to impressionism. Definitely a must for art lovers!
Next I went to ‚Neues Museum‘ which is all about historic
collections from antiquity, stone age and bronze age like bronze bells, papyrus
scrolls or kids shoes from the late years. The most interesting about this
museum, as I believe, was the ‚time mashine‘. It shows how people lived back in
the days and how their habits, but also how nature changed through the
The last museum I visited was ‚Altes Museum‘ right next to
Berliner Dom (which is my most favourite building in Berlin so far). There you
can learn about roman, greek and etruscan art. It was well worth seeing ancient
gold jewellery, coins or sanctuaries.
After working so hard this week and not being able to see anything else then the store I'm working in, my bed and preparing food in the kitchen I seized the moment and went out on this sunny sunday to explore friedrichshain.
