You’ve probably heard about ‘Robin Joris Dullers’ before, especially if you are a common reader of ENFNTS TERRIBLES. We already used the photographer’s photos in our article about Beyoncé and Rihanna’s gig at Pukkelpop. But also in an exclusive backstage view at Paris Fashion week and more! We love his work and we’re more than happy to bring you something new from the talented photographer today. Berlin hotspots!
Robin Joris Dullers went for a trip to Berlin a few weeks ago. We were stunned by his images and decided to publish them in a few different articles. With each article representing a different area and hotspots of Berlin, shot by Robin Joris Dullers. You’ve already seen part 1 of Robin Joris Dullers’ hotspots in Berlin. Here’s part 2!
Museum Island is the Northern half of an island in the Spree river in the central Mitte district in Berlin. It is particularly known for the Berliner Dom and its museums, all part of the Berlin State Museums. Amongst them are 5 internationally significant ones. Including the Altes Museum (Old Museum), the Neues Museum (New Museum), the Alte Nationalgalerie (Old National Gallery), the Bode Museum on the island’s northern tip and the Pergamon Museum. It’s obvious to say that the island has grown into a mecca for culture vultures from across the world.
All museums offer discounts to students. Many also offer free entry on certain days, or at certain times of the day (for a short while before closing for example). It’s worth checking on the individual museums’ websites for details to get the most out of your euros.
Apart from the museums, the island is a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy the ancient side of Berlin. In 1999, the complex was added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.
The Berliner Dom, also known as its English equivalent ‘Berlin Cathedral’, is one of Berlin’s main churches. It is located on Museum Island in the Mitte borough and is without a doubt one of the Berlin Hotspots we love, too.
Its exterior is covered in dark patches caused by the damage it has suffered since its construction in 1905.
The Berlin Cathedral has never been a cathedral in the actual sense of that term since it has never been the seat of a bishop. Although it isn’t officially a cathedral, the building is impressive on both the inside and outside. Definitely worth paying a visit!
