There is no other museum quite like this that I have visited in my travels. The sure size of archaeological treasures that were brought here from the Middle East is awe inspiring. As well, there is a section on Islamic treasures, the like I have not seen elsewhere. Definitely worth the trip.

It seemed to be the most visited museum in Berlin, but i was not really impressed. The entrance costs 12 euros and audio guide is included. 2 floors.

This museum is an unforgettable experience, plundered from ancient lands; behind the wall during the iron curtain, it is a fascinating insight to both ancient and german history. Temples; gates and an overwhelming display of the ancient world, informative audio guide which actually- useful! You will leave exhausted and take several days to process the sheer volume of everything you... More

There are three separate sections of history beautifully captured in this museum. You don't have to be a history buff, you just have to be into seeing beautiful, amazingly large and ornate masterpieces of the human race. DO: Check out the line, maybe do a loop somewhere else if it's very long or plan on a low visit day (call... More

There are several floors to this museum. This museum is one of five in a cluster. I was impressed with the artifacts from the early BC eras. Babylonia, early Turks, Ottoman Turks. There were also collections of carpets and rugs, tapestry. You need at least an hour here, more if you truly want to look at all the rugs.

I had three archaeological wonders I wanted to see in Berlin. I got a Museum Island ticket which gets you in to all the amazing museums and galleries for €18 - totally worth it. The other two (Nefertiti and the Troy treasure) were at Neues. The Ishtar Gate is at Pergamon. As is so much more... The Ishtar Gate is... More

I had the opportunity to visit the Pergamon Museum twice.... and it never disappoints. You will always remember the first time you walked through the Ishtar Gate!! But don't stop there, continue to explore the museum to discover more islamic art, the Pergamon Altar, and the market gate of Miletus. This museum is a mandatory stop for us every time... More

The gates of Babilon and Miletho are a real must. Withe most of the Middle East historic sites unreachable due to the wars going on the region; it is a great place to go.

Visit Ishtar Gate and there isn't a lot more! But, it is located in a nice historic place. Also, one should buy the day pass allowing entry to multiple museums - its a good deal.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center 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 neighborhood’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.
