What to expect

Discover the jewels of Berlin's world-famous Museum Island. Explore the wonders of Ancient Egypt, Babylon, Greece and Rome on an exclusive tour through two remarkable museums: Pergamon Museum and Neues Museum.

Hosted by an expert guide, you will not only see impressive artefacts and architectural structures, but you will also learn many exciting facts about history and get a critical understanding of the collection's relationship to Berlin, past and present.

How did the Bauhaus aesthetic inadvertently preserve Prussian-era Egyptian fresco facsimiles? Who found the bust of Nefertiti lying face down in the dirt in 1912 and how did she end up in Berlin? Where can one walk down a contemporary staircase based on Classical proportions which is scarred with WWII bullet holes?

Let this unforgettable tour of Berlin's two finest museums give you many exciting insights.

Just be aware: the Pergamon Altar is currently not on display due to ongoing construction works.
