The ishtar gate, the market gate of miletus and mshatta facade are worth the trip to this museum. Unfortunately the exhibit with pergamon altar is currently under renovation. We had tickets with time slot and I absolutely incourage everyone to get their tickes online/in advance. That saved us from wating in line.

I visited with a friend, and we are both students, at different universities in the EU. I presented my student card, and was refused a student rate ( I attended a Danish university), despite my friend also presenting her student card (Ireland), which was accepted. To say the least, the visit began on a bad note, and the front desk... More

Museum is under construction. We want to go back when all displays are open again. The Ishtar gate to Babylon is incredible.

Really cool place that had a display of a gateway to Ishtar. Stunning. Highly recommend the 3 day pass to over 50 museums. If you go to 3 or more places it's already paid for itself. No line today. Free lockers. Free audio guides. Some really neat displays.

This is the first I have seen a whole building set up of the old Greek settlement. The Gate of Isis, and the Babylonian lions on the wall of the road to Isis also was brilliant. Saw things i had never seen before. Well designed and well executed Museum!

There are three highlights in this museum ( we only saw two as one is under refurbishment), adn they are great and worth a visit! I have to admit that I do not remember much of the rest of the museum, but I do remember the two big gates!

Even though we brought tickets in advance we ended up in the queue that didn't move for over half an hour. The signs said priority lane and another lane for those who needed to pay for their ticket. It didn't really matter as you ended up in the same lane. We didn't have much time so we gave up our... 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.
