One of Berlin's greatest puzzles is the Altar of Pergamon, an ancient Greek temple dating from 180-160BC dug up by German archaeologists in the 1880s. The altar is covered with a mammoth frieze depicting all the gods in battle against a horde of giants (with Athena pulling Alcyoneos by the hair and Zeus taking on three giants at once).

The museum's 30-minute, English-language recorded tour, which you can pick up at the entrance, is excellent.
