Top sights in Berlin
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
The Pergamon Museum is open from 10:00AM to 6:00PM daily, except for Thursdays when it's open until 8:00PM.

What People Are Saying About Pergamon Museum
Very disappointed that no entry to Pergamon Museum without 2 hour Queque - even with musem pass - we had to miss this very important experience we had planned for.
Definitely worth purchasing if you planning most of the Museums - free audio guides & lockers Some museums not included but you may get a discount, so check out what you wanna see before
Berlin has so many museums, and if you're a museum lover you can't go without this pass.. it will save you money if you're planning to visit more than 3 museums. Definately recommend it! Be sure to research and check out, which museum you'll need to book a spot like the Pergamon Museum you'd need to book to enter within a timeslot. This I've done when verifying the pass near the Tourist Information point near the Brandenburg Gate.
This tickets can save you a few hours of standing in the line. The museum is pretty impressive!
We have extensively visited the Middle East over 25 years from Morocco to India and it was a joy to see so many treasures of these regions in one place. We visited Syria in 2010 prior to the civil war and to see the items from Aleppo was special.
