The Pergamon has the best of Berlin's classical antiquities: the Greek Pergamon Altar, the market gate of Miletus and the blue-tiled Ishtar Gate and processional way from Babylon. The Pergamon Altar’s enormous frieze depicts the battle between the gods and the giants, with gals like Athena, Aphrodite and Artemis wiping out their opponents like robed Charlie’s Angels. Near-East antiquities, with an emphasis on Assyria and Iran, and Islamic art round out the museum’s treasure chest. The audioguide has an instructive 30-minute highlights tour.
