Offering visitors a rare look into the ancient world, Pergamonmuseum attracts nearly 2 million people each year, making it the most-visited museum in Germany. It features an extensive collection of ancient Greek, Middle-Eastern, and Islamic art and architecture. Located on Museum Island in the heart of the city, this site was designed by architect Alfred Messel and built from 1910 to 1930. The museum contains reconstructed monumental buildings from around the world, including the giant Ishtar Gate and the Market Gate of Miletus. Be sure to see the Pergamon Altar, a massive marble shrine after which the museum is named. Save time by booking your tickets online. Pick up a free audio guide at the entrance.

Not many words to describe a wonderful museum full of magnificent artworks. Unfortunately, we were not able to see the Pergamon Altar as it was under restoration. Would recommend to go without tour... more »
What a beautiful place. Coming from California, where history begins in the 1930s, it was stunning to see relics from the earliest religions and rule of law. The recreations are epic and give you a sense of proportion to your own existence.
Incredible, a must see when in Berlin. Book your ticket online for timed entry. Get a locker for jackets and big bags. The wardrobe and lockers are free, just put a Euro into the lock. You will then proceed upstairs however, depending on the visitor flow a museum guard will direct you to a line to wait. The museum is filled with treasures. You can easily spend a few hours here.
One of my favorite museums in the world! Took around an hour and a half, but could have easily spent between 2 and 3. Easier to get tickets online beforehand.
The Pergamonmuseum, located on Museum Island, is worth a stop but if the weather is nice, explore the parks and outdoor history saving this for a rainy or cold day. While inside my favorite piece was the giant Ishtar Gate. The color was so vibrant on this gate of the inner city of Babylon constructed in 575 BCE by King Nebuchadnezzar II – so much history!
Splendid museum with awe-inspiring exhibits. I’m not familiar with the middle eastern cultures, so this exhibition was very informative and eye-opening to me. The only regret is that I didn’t manage to finish the exhibition before the museum closed. You probably need about 2-2.5h to see everything here.
