Just to be clear, it's the hall that contains the altar that will be closed; not the entire Pergamon Museum.

Wow, thanks, Andreas! I didn't think to check auf Deutsch, but there's no explanation/description of work to be done in English. I know from TV shows that there's ALOT of work to be done, though.

I can now comfortably postpone my forays into Berlin for a few years now ;-)
