The Ishtar Gate and the processional way were impressive. Unfortunately, the Pergamon Altar was being renovated. But there was a lot to see on 2 floors. It had (free) wheelchairs and tape machines that explained exhibits. There was a shop.

The Germans purchased amazing antiquities near the start of the 20th century, and two walk amongst these beautifully restored and displayed objects is a real treat. Highly recommended, even if you don't think you are into antiquities!

No words can properly describe this museum. It is under construction, so we missed some exhibits and entered through a side door, but WOW!

The highlights are massive walls and gate from Babylon, but there are many other worthwhile items from both the ancient middle east and Roman Empire.

Just to see the Gate of Ishtar or the Miletus Gate, you will be impressed. The Persian art is fantastic. In the massive Islamic section don't miss the Aleppo room. Thank god it's here and could have been destroyed.

Undergoing extensive renovations. The world-famous Pergamon Altar exhibit is closed to visitors until at least 2019. You can still see the Ishtar Gates and some of the Greco-Roman artifacts. Probably not worth the time and money for a visit right now.

I allowed a couple of hours to visit this museum, which was about right. You need to have a guided tour if possible to fully discover as much of the background to the various exhibits.

Great museum and well worth it on a museum pass. Very crowded and touristy, but worth a trip. Definitely recommend.

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
