The outside of this building is impressive, and you can still see the aftermath of WWII on this building, which is history in itself. Inside, there's a beautiful domed main hall surrounded by exhibit halls filled with Greek and Roman artifacts. We enjoyed all of...More

Just the presence of the building will leave you surprised. Very nice museum located close to other sites with a huge garden in front where people hang out. You won't miss it.

This is a good museum focusing on Greek and Roman history. It is well set out and all displays have English aswell as German information cards. I would probably visit again.

I went to the Museum because I wanted to see the exibition they were showing, about wanderers and journeys present in some of the german expressionists and impressionists paintings. It was an amazing exibition. And the museum is just beautiful.

The Altes does a great job telling the story of the rise of the Greek/Roman empire. I enjoyed the beautiful statues here! Definitely worth a visit.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights

Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
