It might help to know where ancient Pergamon was situated and to realise that the greatest ruins of Mediterranean antiquity may be found in Turkey. The Pergamon in Berlin seems under a permanent state of completion, restoration or rejuvenation, depending on your mood. It's certainly worth the visit and you can have to queue for quite a while to get... More

Pergamon museum in the nearest vicinity of three other major museums focuses on displaying the treasures of ancient architecture that simply wouldn't fit anywhere else. These things are huge. In normal museums you have jewels, statues, clothes, scripts and whatever else. In Pergamon you have gates to cities, facades of palaces and altars. It features a gate to Babylon, gate... More

We went to see the Ishtar gate. There is a lot of rebuilding going on so check that the items you are going to see are actually on display. A superb museum. Certainly one of the best in the world.

We were there in late October and still had a 40 minute wait in line, but it was worth it. Saw things from the ancient past we had never seen before.. full size replicas of city walls and gates. Apparently you can avoid the lines by getting timed tickets on internet.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
