This museum contains some stunning artefacts which deserve a few hours of anyone's time. The examples of Islamic art were also truly beautiful. It was a pity that the gentleman selling the tickets managed to exhibit such an aura of boredom and disinterest in the people coming in when what was on display was so memorable.

The main attraction (the Pargamon entrance), and many others, were closed due to renovations. But the admiration price remained unaltered at 12 €. NOT fair in my opinion

I got inside in less than 10 minutes! I bought museumpass there! The museum is... More

Recommend reservation tickets and avoiding German holidays. Our first attempt was a German holiday with 2-hour waits and dense crowds. We punted and came the on Monday on US MLK holiday and no lines and no crowd. Delightfully slow paced and pleasant. Heavy renovation underway so limited accessed to areas. Recommend audio guides which provide clear explanation and frequent pauses... More

A very interesting museum with a stunning collection of mosaics. Highly impressive exhibits, unique experience not to be missed. The only negative is that it can be hassle if you run into day peak or not you have shut time tickets

The reconstructed Ishtar Gate is a must-see . Awesome. The building itself is as stunning as the exhibits.

The Pergamon Museum is one of the best museums in the world in my opinion. The museum is named for one of its most important displays, the Pergamon altar, which unhappily is in storage as the museum is going through a massive renovation. However, my husband and I had been to the museum before and seen this remarkable and gigantic... More

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.
