My favorite in the Pergammon museum, however, was the Ishtar gate from the city of Babylon. It was blue and gold and beautiful and huge! Again, you have to wonder how Iraq feels about it being in Germany!
We had purchased Berlin Welcome Cards at the airport for 34 Euros each. It included all the museums on museum island, as well as all the buses or trains you can take in 72 hours. It turns out you can take about 9 rides in just one day! We really got our money's worth out of it! The transportation was great, and between Ed and Amanda keeping on top of which bus to get on, Crystal and I could just enjoy the ride!
We stopped by Bellevue Schloss, where the president of Germany lives. I read so much about it in Der Spiegel last year, as they had a big scandal and booted out the old president.
