I learned that many of the works in this great museum are gathered from many middle eastern countries that are currently at war and seem to be well preserved and very much admired. The exhibit is large but possible to see the exhibit in a reasonable time.

I visited while one third of the museum was being redone, but it was still well worth the ticket. The Islamic art collection was amazing and there was so much to see. I could have stayed for hours.

If you are in Berlin, you definitely must see this museum. The Ishtar gate is breathtaking. One hour can be enough for a quick visit. Buy tickets on web to avoid a long wait.

Pergamon museum is a must in Berlin. However part of it is now closed, which is a pity for the visitors. If you're interested in the Greek part of the this museum, avoid it, cause is the one that is closed and 12€ might be expensive.

Go see and even under construction the exhibits are amazing. Just pick out the highlights such as the Ishtar Gate. The map will also have a couple of suggestions as well. Follow the suggestions and you wont' be disappointed!

Being the first group to go in at 10 o'clock after only a 30 minute wait we were then very impressed with the uniqueness of this museum even though similar museums had been visited in Turkey and other countries. Well recommended

Pick up an audio guide and embark on some time travel to visit Babylonian and Roman ruins. Descriptions explain how daily life was for inhabitants of these wilder times, miniatures give a sense of actual (huge) size of real sites.

Long wait for tickets, only saw when we got into the building that the altar was closed for renovation. For the entry fee of €12 there is not much to see. The gate (photo below) is impressive, but compared to other museums i was underwhelmed, we were leaving after just 30 mins or so.

The museum is being partially renovated at the moment and we were unable to see the Pergamon alterpiece but the Ishtar Gate is breathtaking. This along with the other wonderful exhibits makes this a fascinating museum; in my opinion one of the best in the world. The free audio guides add to the experience. When we visited, a Monday morning... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
