German History Museum Accessibility

  Sage 4 Star AccessibilityThe German History Museum is located just west of Museum Island on Unter den Linden.

The German History Museum is one of the best history museums I’ve ever been to. It covers all of German History from pre-historic times to today and it is easy to spend all day there. I recommend going to this museum in the beginning of your trip so you will have a historical context to the sights you will see. There is a step-free entrance on Unter Den Linden street to the south of the building.
