Discover more about this tour

Get lost in the cultures of Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia on this private guided tour of two of the most important cultural museums in Berlin. This unforgettable experience allows you to take a journey through history in just 2.5. hours. And they said the impossible couldn’t be accomplished!

Begin your tour at the Neues Museum where you will explore the impressive collection of the world’s most enchanting ancient civilization – Egypt. Your guide will lead you through Egypt’s millennia-old evolution, explaining how the civilization transformed over time. You will even gain insight into their conceptions of the afterlife as you wander through the chambers of Egyptian Tombs. You’ll come face to face with the curious Berlin Green Man. Then you can become an expert on the exquisite Queen Nefertiti, Egypt’s most famous leading lady by learning all about her dynasty and religious reforms.

The Neues Museum is more than just Egyptian artifacts. The building is considered a piece of artwork in itself. World War II wreaked havoc on the building but recent restorations left us with a quirky mix of old and new. Your guide will draw your attention to the often-surprising architectural juxtapositions. 

Afterwards, enter the Pergamon museum and wander through the reconstructed facades, mosaics, sculptures and tiled floors with your guide. In the Greek and Roman section, you’ll see the famous Market Gate of Miletus dating back to the Romans. You will also be given an insight into the everyday lives and traditions of past civilizations in the Collection of Classical Antiquities. Even more famous, the Pergamon Altar dates from the 2nd century B.C and features friezes of the gods battling giants. 

Further along in the Ancient Near East collection, your guide will bring you to the world-famous Ishtar Gate from the Babylonian Empire. You’ll also encounter a stellar collection of Islamic art highlighting works from the Middle East, where you will gain an understanding of Arab culture. Among them, the wood-paneled Aleppo Room is a favorite, dating all the way back to the 17th century. 

Both these museums will send you on a whirlwind tour around the ancient world without having to step a foot off Museum Island.
