Seriously, a stunning museum, please go there and enjoy. The Pergamon exhibition is currently closed, but the near eastern stuff is magnificent.

It is an amazing museum, right now I'm only waiting for them to open it completely. I hope right now it is because the Pergamon altar is closed since 2014 approximately.

I was very impressed by Bergamon museum although it was under construction a big part of it and I didn't manage to see the Pergamon gate.

This museum was so overwhelmingly beautiful, I cried. The Gates of Babylon are such a sight to behold and every room gave off undeniable energy. If you go to Berlin and don't go here, you blew your trip. Now, go get your culture on pronto!

Needed more time. The exhibits are on a grand scale, the commentary provided over the free headsets, is very interesting and makes you take your time with each area.

A few really big pieces on show, really interesting, much better than the other museums we visited (Bode and Neus) as it had information in English and German not just German. Plus the explanations were good in Pergamon, but naff in others. Didn't spend too long here, maybe an hour. Had to wait 30mins to get in, no queue for... More

The exhibition is fascinating. There are numerous breathtaking pieces of history exhibited there and they did a very good job in guiding people through the exhibition.

Since the Pergamon is one of the must-go-see museums in Berlin, I had great expectations for it when I visited it. To my surprise, I wasn't completely blown away by it! While it does have a lot of historical masterpieces it did have a bit of an old style museum feel to it with not so much interactivity as for... 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.
