The Pergamon Museum is a world leading museum for pre Christian art from the M|iddle East. The wonderful Ishtar Gate and Processional way guarded by snarling lions are alone worth the entry price.The collection of Islamic art is a bonus

To me, one of the most impressing exhibitions of the world. Pergamommuseum and the Egyptian Museum beside are everytime breathtaking again.

Amazing artefacts going back thousands of years. Go off season if you can to avoid the queues! Reasonably priced.

Maybe the V&A in london set my bar really high over time but with the exception of 3-4 pieces I didn't say anything amazing. I think this museum would be a lot better if they would use proper lights and a different ceiling.

Nice collection of artefacts but the museum itself is very old fashioned. It is really what a museum in the 21st century shouldn't be to attract young visitors. They have much more potential.

Wow! Standing in the midst of antiquity is a rare moment that you just have to take in. It is amazing to see what the ancient civilizations constructed. Well worth a visit.

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

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

You will be there in low season, so less likely to need it. However, if you are on a tight schedule, it could be worth getting faster access. Loads to see in there so allow time and have fun!
