Strollers walk in the direction of the Bode Museum and Museum Island.

Visitors can then again visit Nefertiti in the Neues Museum on the Museum Island, one of Berlin's tourist highlights. In addition to the Neues Museum, the Kupferstichkabinett and the Kunstbibliothek will open their doors (from 19 June) as well as the Museum für Fotografie (25 June) and the Museum of European Cultures (27 June), as the National Museums announced on Friday.
The first museums opened again a month ago. On the Museum Island (Museumsinsel) the Alte Nationalgalerie, the Altes Museum and the Pergamon-Panorama were opened to visitors. The Gemäldegalerie opened at the Kulturforum. All visits are subject to the obligation to wear masks and to the usual regulations for hygiene and distances. In order to avoid queues of waiting visitors, tickets should also only be sold with time slots, which can also be booked online beforehand.
All the Foundation's museums were closed since 14 March due to the pandemic. The National Museums of the Foundation of Prussian Cultural Heritage, which is supported by the Federal Government and the Länder, alone have 13 collections in 19 museums. The Museum Island in the centre of Berlin, which has been designated a World Cultural Heritage Site, was last visited by a good three million people every year.
