Everything You Never Knew You Wanted to Know About Berlin
An important message for all Berlin visitors and all locals planning to (finally!) go and see the world famous Altar of Pergamon at the Pergamonmuseum in Berlin-Mitte.
With the next stage of restoration and refurbishment works on Berlin´s most frequented spot, the Museuminsel, looming ahead, from September 28th the great hall housing the Pergamonaltar will be unavailable for visitors. For 5 up to 6 years, in case you were planning to put it on your next-year Berlin stay schedule…
However, The South Wing of Germany´s most frequented museum – featuring the Market Gate of Miletus, the Ishtar Gate and Processional Way from Babylon, as well as the Museum of Islamic Art – will not be affected and can be visited at regular hours also after September 28th. To enter, use the back door in Kolonnadenhof between the Alte Nationalgalerie and the Neues Museum: a large red poster with a white arrow shows the direct way.
In response to an even greater than usual interest in the most important item of the museum’s collection, its management is happy to announce extended opening hours: until September 27th instead of 6 pm, Pergamonmuseum will stay open until 8 pm.
