We continue to Hackescher Markt where we join our Local Specialist for a fascinating walking tour of this cultural area, visiting the Courtyard of Haus Schwarzenberg which today retains its artistic flair from yesteryear. After free time for lunch, we return to central Berlin with a drop off at Museum Island where we have an opportunity to visit its museums. Amble through the Pergamon Museum housing monumental buildings such as the Ishtar Gate of Babylon, and the Market Gate of Miletus reconstructed from the ruins found in ancient Middle East and Turkey.
