After a few days of bitterly cold weather - which we were told was unusual at this time of year - we wanted an indoor activity and the Pergamon Museum stood out to me. We arrived at the museum just before 10am and had a 15 minute wait (under cover) before we were able to go inside and queue for... More

Something to do on a rainy day, very fascinating and lots to see. Good value for money - book with the early bird tickets online and avoid an hours queue.

We went here as we had the Berlin Welcome Card with Museum Island. Brilliant museum with some fantastic Islamic art. The Ishtar Gate really is special and worth the visit alone.

Worth it even if you only see the Ishtar gate. The museum does not have a wealth of information to read but does offer free audioguides in a variety of languages. 4 stars because they should have lowered the entrance fee while a large portion (including the pergamon altar) is under construction.

It's always amasing to see the craftmanship of the ancient cultures! Standing next to the Babylonian Ishtar gate feels quite different than looking at a picture :). Too bad that part of the museum (such as the room with the Pergamon Altar is closed for renovation - till mid 2019?)

Never imagined that someone could combine so many HUGE sites in one museum. The Babylonian Gate is AMAZING. And when you look at the model & realize this is only the entry way & the actual gate was sooooo much bigger! And that is just one of the many many attractions! Definitely a must see attraction & getting the Berlin... More

The ishtar gate is amazing. Second floor is Islamic art, where I learnt a lot about middle eastern history. The Sumerian section was closed due to renovation which to me is a disappointment.

The personal audio system is a must to get the most out of your visit. It's easy to use and included in the price. The exhibits are awesome! A great museum. So pleased we went. Security is very tight. No large bags or carrying of jackets. It is quite warm inside so I would put your coat in one of... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre 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 neighbourhood’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.
