Was blown away by the sheer size of the Ishtar Gate. We went on a Monday afternoon and didn't have to wait at all to enter. A definite must-see when visiting Berlin.

When in Berlin you must visit this museum a fantastic collection. The gates of Ishtar and the gates of Miletus are worth the visit. Other highlights include the Aleppo room and other Middle East antiquities are also worth the visit.

Much of this museum is closed including the area with the Pergamon Altar itself. However, what is available to visit is quite magnificent.

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

What is the best way to get into this museum if you have purchased an advanced ticket for it? Is there a special entrance so you don't have to stand in line with those who don't already have a ticket? Thank you.

Hello (: Are there any lockers in the Pergamon museum? Or a storage room where we could put our suitcases? And if not - where could we put them? We would be arriving the Pergamon Museum directly from the airport, complete with the luggage, as there are no lockers now in the Schonfeld Airport, and we only have a few hrs in the city. Tnx (: Michal
