Explore UNESCO-listed Museuminsel in the company of a best-selling travel writer
Discover Museum Island at your own pace in the company of best selling author Rory MacLean. Start at the Schlossplatz – Berlin's original seat of power, its Westminster and St Paul’s, its White House, Smithsonian and Pentagon . Take in the rebuilt Schloss, from where in 1914 Kaiser Wilhelm sent a million men to their deaths at Verdun, Ypres and Passchendaele. Discover why five magnificent museums – which trace the development of civilizations throughout the ages – make Museuminsel such a celebrated UNESCO World Heritage site. 

You can start the walk at your convenience. Audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smart phone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline. If you've got an hour and want to understand why Europe owes so much to the Age of Enlightenment – this is the tour for you!
