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.
If you're only interested in the main monuments themselves, then you could tour the museum in less than an hour. Allow yourself at least three if you're curious about the smaller artifacts, such as ancient jewelry and evidence of early writing systems!
Ticket prices for the Pergamon start at €12, with concessions and discounts for online bookings available.

What People Are Saying About Pergamon Museum
Disappointed.. the altar was closed for rennovation..it should have been less than 12€!
Tickets had not arrived by email within 48hrs as promised. We were already in Berlin and despite repeated attempts could not get a reply from phone calls to the company either in the UK or in Germany. The day before the visit I managed to speak to an agent in Germany. The tickets were eventually sent. I had to get the hotel to print them out. No good emailing as there is a statement in response saying the company will try to answer within 2 days. No good if your visit is the following day.
I got easily to museum, without queuing, and tickets were with good price. Definately I will use this option next time during my trips.
Thinking we might have more time to visit some of Berlin's fabulous museums we purchased the 3-day museum pass ($27). Because there was so much other stuff to do, however, we only used the pass once. The pass doesn't allow you to acquire timed tickets (necessary to avoid lines at museums like The Pergamon) and is not good at all museums (like the outstanding museum at "Check-point Charlie"). So, if you're only spending a couple of days in Berlin, don't bother. Buy the 2-day hop on/hop off bus tour with one-hour River Spree boat cruise instead.)
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.
