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!

Lamassu

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!

If you have limited time this is a must to see the Pergamon!

Arrived after noon ( used Skip the Line to see Neues Museum in the morning) to find a line waiting with over one hundred people. Walked right by and was in the Museum in 5 minutes! The pass included an audio guide and there is some flexibility with the exact time you enter. Great product.

Well organized access to the most important museums

It would be nice if the the duration of the pass could be extended to a 4-6 day option since there are so many interesting museums to visit. It would also be nice if the option to arrange a timed visit in order to avoid the lines (through the tourist information offices) could be arranged in advance by e-mail. In any case we are gratefull for the existing system that contributed to an unforgetable visit to your butiful city.

Fantastic service which enabled us to have immediate entry.

There were huge queues for entry which we were able to bypass and saved us time.
