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. You can plan Berlin trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

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.
