Skip-the-Line Pergamon and New Museum Guided Tour in Berlin including Museum Island Day Pass
From US$68,12
Lowest Price Guaranteed

Ensuring you see the best of Berlin’s Museumsinsel’s (Museum Island’s) vast collection can be a daunting task. Marvel at the UNESCO-listed Pergamon Museum’s and the Neues Museum's (New Museum's)  highlights on a guided tour and enjoy skip-the-line entry to both museums on this 3-hour cultural experience, which includes entry to all five of Museumsinsel’s museums. Travel back in time to the age of Enlightenment and admire classic artefacts including The Bust of Nefertiti, Market Gate of Miletus, and the Ishtar Gate. Receive personalized attention on this small-group tour, limited to 15 people.

What to Expect

Your cultural experience begins at 10am, when you’ll greet your guide beneath the colonnade on the corner of Am Lustgarten and Bode Strasse. As you approach the entrance of the New Museum (Neues Museum), your guide provides an overview of the devastating WWI bombing campaign that almost completely destroyed the UNESCO-listed Museumsinsel (Museum Island).

Skip-the-line passes to both museums mean you’ll bypass long lines of tourists waiting to behold the vast collections of the Neues Museum (New Museum) and the Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum).

Kick off proceedings with a tour of the Pergamon Museum (Pergamonmuseum), home to the opulent Collection of Classical antiques, the Middle Eastern Museum, and the Museum of Islamic Art. Feast your eyes on the famous Ishtar Gate, the Market Gate of Miletus, and the lovely tiles of the Processional Way, whose history and social context are explained by your guide.

On a guided walk, you'll see, too, the Egyptian and prehistoric treasures of the Neues Museum (New Museum), whose recent renovation has restored the 1859 structure to its former glory: highlights include the priceless Bust of Nefertiti and portraits of kings that demonstrate the progression of sculpture throughout history. 

Following your 3-hour museum tour, you’ll receive a ticket that allows entry to all five of Museumsinsel’s (Museum Island’s) exhibitions spaces. Admire works from the eras of Classicism, Romanticism, and Impressionism in the Old National Gallery (Alte Nationalgalerie); see the Pantheon-inspired rotunda in the Altes Museum; and marvel at Byzantine sculptures in the Bode Museum.

Wow Wow Wow!

These two museums are both outstanding. We took a Insider Tour with Gabriela and it was excellent. The Pergamon museum is unlike anything I've seen before-the sheer size of the artifacts is amazing. How they transported and re-assembled these huge pieces is hard to imagine....More

The tour was provided in English as there were four different couples from USA in our tour. The guides also speak German (and our guide also spoke Spanish).

Yes, only valid for the same day. In the summer, the hours are 10 AM to 5 PM. You see a lot on the three hour tour, and the skip the line feature saved probably an hour of waiting.
