A private tour of the Pergamon Museum.
A very different legacy can be seen on the Museum Island (Museumsinsel), where you will get in touch with Prussia's former position in the sciences and its (not uncontroversial) endeavour in the field of archeology and classical and ancient studies. A tour of this museum will introduce you to marvels of human culture such as the Market Gate of Miletus and the Ishtar Gate of Babylon. Understand the historical connection that existed with the classical studies and how it influenced the self-conception of recent Germany's progenitors. NOTE: THE PERGAMON ALTAR ITSELF IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE FOR VISIT UNTIL 2020! But enjoy different documents of the history of man in this marvellous house.

I gave a rating for Angel the other day when he took us on the Pergamon tour. He .was very thorough, completely comfortable to be with and was able to explain and bring life to the artifacts that we were looking at. I highly recommend using angel for this tour
