There is plenty of history to digest. The Pergamon museum has massive pieces of art--gates, buildings, and small pieces. If you're in Berlin, it's a must see.

Line was taking around 1 hour so we bought tickets online for after lunch and that was perfect. The museum only half the exhibition open so it was underwhelming. Interesting market and city gates which made it worth it.

Went to this museum in June 2015 with my husband and 21-year old daughter. We all enjoy museums, but were very disappointed in this one. The museum is under renovation and there were many artifacts that were removed, we got to see many empty pedestals. Many of the items were also not originals. Maybe when it's fully open it would...

The Pergamon museum is mind-blowing. I was surprised to see so many original pieces in such a complete state during my visit here. Well worth the trip

Lot's of good history to learn here. There was a lengthy wait to get in. Liked the free headphones provided to listen to commentary.

The Ishtar Gate and Processional Way is an amazing structure and to think the Babylonians constructed this thousands of years ago.also amazing that they were just rubble when brought back to Germany and were painstakingly reconstructed like a jigsaw puzzle. It is worth visiting just for this. Book ahead as the queues are very long and were over an hour... More

purchase a museum pass for more than one museum; otherwise go online for advance purchase for the museum of your choice.

I last visited Berlin when the wall was still inexistence, a somber and run down capital fear seemed the norm with the imposing wall around the city, and guard posts situated around the wall with east Berlin solders watching you through binoculars. In order to get to the pergamon you had to go through friedrichstrasse U station and exchange West... More

This is a must-go-to place if you are interested in the Hittite civilisation. Also,the Roman marketplace is another beautiful attraction as are the carpets from Aleppo. The museum tends to get crowded and the staff are quite grumpy and unhelpful so I'd go later in the afternoon when for some reason the crowd seems to migrate to the other nearby... More

The Pergamon Museum is located in the Museum island in Bodestrasse, Berlin & was set up in 1930 mainly consisting of parts of original buildings transported from Turkey & reconstructed here.It is one of the most visited Museums in Germany & it would be convenient & better to purchase a multi-entry `Timed Ticket` costing 12 Euros online than wait in...

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.
