...the most important exhibit (the Pergamon altar) and about half of the museum is unviewable since the museum is in the process of renovation (and will be until 2019, when another large section will then be closed). The Gate of Ishtar, which originally greeted visitors entering ancient Babylon. It is made from beautifully colored tiles and is HUGE. There is... More

The Pergamon museum was a must to see everytime I went in Berlin, but this time was different. You've to go really early, in order to avoid big queues but the beginning is always a great appetizer, with the Ishtar Gate from Babilonia and the Miletus market. But the Pergamon altar...nothing. A big renovation is running in the museum and... More

Took my study abroad students and even though it is under construction it is still impressive. I am sad that they were unable to see the great steps, but grateful what they were able to see. I visit every time I am in Berlin. What a treasure.

Any one who has any interest in world history and in the Bible simply must visit this reconstruction. It stands as testimony to the grandeur of empire and Babylon in particular. It is also a timely reminder to our modern empire builders that the mighty do fall!!!

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.
