Art, culture and creativity just around the corner

Diagonally opposite the Illuseum you will find the TV tower. It takes just 35 seconds to get to the viewing platform of the Berlin landmark. Here you can enjoy the view and admire the capital from above. The next Berlin attraction is just around the corner from the Illuseum: the Berlin Dungeon. During the spooky live shows, you can travel into Berlin’s past and meet sinister characters. On Museum Island, which is just a ten-minute walk away, you can discover culture and art collections that are renowned worldwide. Its five museums consisting of the Altes Museum, the Neues Museum, the Bode Museum, the Pergamon Museum, and the Alte Nationalgalerie are all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Unfortunately, the Pergamon Museum has been closed for renovation work since October 2023.
