8. Berlin, Germany

Berlin's dynamic history and the preserved monuments to wars, political strife and cultural relief leads visitors to sometimes feel like they're walking through a museum just by strolling the German capital's streets. Twenty-seven museums have opened - and re-opened - in the past decade, helping to establish the city's Museum Island as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and pave the way for international artistic respect. The Anti-Kriegs-Museum is the world's first anti-war museum and - after a temporary relocation to Belgium - re-opened proudly in 1982. For something a tad spicier, check out the Beathe Uhse Erotik-Museum and take a 2,000-year exploration of eroticism and sex through pictures, painting, illustrations and figures in over 5,000 exhibits.
