Top 5 Pergamon Museum exhibits that aren't the Pergamon

The Pergamon Altar itself is, unfortunately, closed for renovation work until 2019. Is Berlin's museum of monuments still worth a visit without its title attraction? Absolutely! Here are five ancient treasures just as likely to amaze!

Ishtar Gate

The royal blue gateway was once used to lead spring festival processions from ancient Babylon. It takes one large room and an entire hallway to do the imposing structure justice!

These large Sphinxes were found in the ancient Assyrian capital of Aššur. The protective deities – lion, eagle, and human hybrids – adorned the palace of King Tukulti-Ninurta I.

Market Gate of Miletus

This former entrance to an ancient Greek agora is truly breathtaking! It was completely devasted by an earthquake in the Middle Ages, but the reconstruction is a must-see!

Aleppo Room

Commissioned by a prosperous Christian living under Ottoman rule, the ornate panels of this 17-century entrance room were created by some of the finest craftsmen of the time!

Mshatta Façade

Walid ibn Yazid reigned the Ummayad caliphate for only a year, never finishing his winter palace. Its façade is now the pride of the Pergamon Museum of Islamic Art. Don't miss it!

What People Are Saying About Pergamon Museum

Really good way to spent 3 days in Berlin. Highly recommended.

My friends and I used the pass only for 2 days, since we continued traveling around. But even for the 2 days we had it was well worth it.

Knowledgeable and passionate guide, fun driving in the VW Bulli!

I bought the tour for my parents when they visited Berlin. They absolutely loved it and couldn't stop talking about all the stories they had learned about. Driving in the car was a really fun experience. The guide is an expert on Berlin history and brings his story passionately. A photobook was supplied during the tour as well, so modern day Berlin could even be compared to what the different areas of Berlin looked like throughout history. Very interesting added touch to the tour!

Good Pass for museum and transport in Berlin

My advice for you: TEST In What HOURS/DAYS MUSEUMS are opened? PERGUMON, NUES MUSEUM AND JEWISH MUSEUM are OPENED IN MONDAY. ALTE GALLERY and other museums are closed in Monday. Tour is good for 4 days.

excelent,except for having to seal ticket at bus or tram before.

excelent, except for having to seal ticket at bus or tram before entering the first museum. Or that was what the person at Neues Museum told us to do.

Worth it if you make the most of transport and museum entries

This pass was extremely useful to me, as I used public transport constantly throughout the day and also made it to 4 of the 5 museums on Museum Island during my stay in Berlin.
