New "Pergamon Museum. The Panorama" opens in Berlin

From November 17, important original works from ancient Pergamon and a 360-degree panorama will be shown in a temporary building. The restored Telephos frieze of the Pergamon Altar can also be seen again in Berlin.

For four years, the Pergamon Altar in the north wing of the Pergamon Museum on Berlin's Museum Island has not been open to visitors due to alterations. The reopening is not expected until 2024.

On November 17, the huge round picture by the artist Yadegar Aisis returns to the Museum Island. He has reworked it, making it more up-to-date and even bigger. The walk-in panorama was already on display in the Parade Court of the Pergamon Museum in 2011/12 and attracted 1.5 million visitors.
