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.

Itinerary

The Ishtar Gate
The Procession Street at Babylon

What’s Included

I will introduce you to the major exhibits of the Pergamon Museum and put them into context with German history. Please note that I need to register the group with the museum for a specific time. We might have to adjust our entry time according to their visitor management. Please let me know your preferred starting time before the booking.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

12 Euro - Tickets to get into the museum are 12 Euro per person.

What’s Extra

If we meet in your hotel and depending on the location of the hotel we might have to use either public transport or a taxi to get to the beginning of the tour.

Restrictions

Any tour that I offer without a driver can also be booked with a car and private chauffeur if needed. I use a driver of my own as well as a comfortable Mercedes-Benz Vito. Please contact me for an individual quote.
