Pergamon and Neues Museum Guided Tour
Discover the jewels of Berlin’s world-famous Museum Island. Explore the wonders of Ancient Egypt, Babylon, Greece and Rome on a guided tour through two remarkable museums: the Pergamon and the New Museum.
Who found the bust of Nefertiti lying face down in the dirt in 1912; how did she end up in Berlin? Where else can one walk down a staircase based on Classical proportions scarred with WWII bullet holes? Join us for an unforgettable tour of Berlin’s two finest museums and immerse yourself in history, art, and culture.
Begin your journey in the Neues Museum, where you’ll see an impressive collection of artifacts from Egypt, the world’s most enthralling ancient civilisation. Your guide will take you on a millennia-long journey through Egypt’s history, detailing how the civilisation evolved through time. As you stroll around the chambers of Egyptian Tombs, you will acquire insight into their beliefs about the afterlife.
You’ll be confronted by the mysterious Berlin Green Man. Then you can become an expert on Egypt’s most famous leading lady, Queen Nefertiti, by learning about her dynasty and religious reforms. More than Egyptian relics can be found at the Neues Museum.
The structure is regarded as a work of art in and of itself. The structure was severely damaged during World War II, but recent restorations have resulted in a unique mix of old and new. Your tour guide will point out the frequently striking architectural juxtapositions.
After that, go to the Pergamon museum with your guide and explore among the recreated facades, mosaics, sculptures, and tiled floors. The iconic Market Gate of Miletus, which dates back to the Romans, may be found in the Greek and Roman sector.
In the Collection of Classical Antiquities, you’ll get a glimpse into the daily lives and practices of ancient civilizations.
The Pergamon Altar, which dates from the 2nd century B.C. and includes friezes of gods wrestling giants, is even more famous. Your guide will take you farther into the Ancient Near East collection to the world-famous Ishtar Gate from the Babylonian Empire.
You’ll also find a fantastic collection of Islamic art, with a focus on pieces from the Middle East, where you may learn about Arab culture. The wood-paneled Aleppo Room, which dates back to the 17th century, is one of the most popular.
