It's the first thing you see when you climb the stairs at the Pergamon and it really is stunning. The museum itself is great. Undergoing a bit of renovation right now (you won't get a coffee break in the museum itself) but it's well laid out and really shows you how incredible ancient civilisation was

I took some visiting friends to the Pergamon. I knew that a large part of the museum is being renovated and won't reopen until 2019 (which in Germany could mean any time in the next decade.) My guests wanted to see the Nefertiti sculpture. The museum is still fantastic. I visited before the construction began and it feels like something... More

So unique in a world full of museums! Beautiful and huge, and yet one can scan in a few hours or decide to repeat over several days.

I absolutely loved this museum. When you see the brilliance of what past civilisations could do it really takes your breathe away. Part of the museum is under construction but it still a must see when you come to Berlin. I am a stickler for anything Roman and Italian and they have a huge room dedicated to Roman architecture and... More

First stop on Museum Island to see the Ishtar Gate - fantastic! The objects on display were all interesting but I thought there would be more to see. Worth a visit but can easily walk through it under two hours (most likely due to sections closed for renovation until 2019.) Though the Pergamon Gate is not open to the public,... More

Found this an interesting place to visit. The scale of some of the displays are truly amazing. Recommend either pre-purchasing tickets or getting there early to avoid having to queue.

This is by far the best museum in the museum island. Worth visit even if the Pergamon room was under construction. Long queues, but worth it.

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.
