Berlin is a fascinating, sprawling city with a wealth of history to fascinate the traveller. Five museums on Museumsinsel (Museum Island) focus their attention on archaeology and 19th-century art and, as a whole, have been listed by UNESCO. The Museum for Contemporary Art, in a former railway station, houses art made since the 1960s, while the Checkpoint Charlie Museum marks the most notorious crossing point between the former East and West Berlin and is a reminder of the divisions of the Cold War. The city's Jewish Museum has a distinctive, angular design by the star architect Daniel Libeskind and a visit is an unforgettable experience. Berlin has a vibrant nightlife and to cater for those who indulge in it, the city's U-Bahn system operates all night on Fridays and Saturdays.
