The Pergamon Museum is one of the best museums in the world in my opinion. The museum is named for one of its most important displays, the Pergamon altar, which unhappily is in storage as the museum is going through a massive renovation. However, my husband and I had been to the museum before and seen this remarkable and gigantic... More

Considering the history of the art trade in Berlin, there are healthier and better places to get your Ancient Art on. I was there in the dead of January and the the '2 hour wait" sign I found amusing. It took me 2 minutes to enter. Yes, one of the giant roman gates was under construction and hidden but there...

This museum is really a one of a kind. The Germans took treasures from all around the world and some of them are inside this museum. The walls from the Persian gulf are amazing and there is much more to see. A must!

We did all the museums on the island and each one was just as wonderful as the next . Worth a visit just for the architecture alone

Many years ago German archeologists brought back over 650 crates filled with shards of glazed pieces of the Ishtar Gate and reassembled them in this museum .. creating a spectacularly huge mind blowing display that must be seen to be believed

Nice and impressive place to visit, highly recommend it. Although part of the museus is under renovation, the dispay is worth it.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
