On Monday we headed back to the Museum Insel and went to the Neues Museum. It holds Egyptian and Germanic items, mostly. I went there on my last visit to Berlin also, and it's a great place. The whole museum has been carefully restored to show how it was originally made, and it's been a huge effort, since it was badly damaged when Berlin was bombed.
|A dark skinned Egyptian queen.|
|German artefacts. The walls show how they were left bare where no traces of the original wall paint was found.|
|A little hedgehog!|
|Animal mummies. The first one is a cat, if I remember correctly.|
|And to continue the set of pictures with lions, here's me and a Sudanese king on a lion throne.|
|Then we found a better lion outside next to the Spree river ;)|
|Under the Dom was the Hohenzollern crypt. It was big and filled with all shapes and sizes of coffins.|
After going back to the hotel, we picked up some take-away food and took turns to soak in the hotel rooms bath tub. What could be better than eating sushi and reading magazines in the tub?
