Visits to the Boros Collection are by guided tour only, since the top floor is a private residence. Advance reservations are easy to obtain on their internet website, and tickets do not have to be purchased until arrival (currently 12 euro). The guide provides very useful background information, in English or German depending on the tour selected. No photos are... More

Boros bunker is one of the finest private modern art collections in Europe, so if you are an art enthusiast you must not miss it. I was lucky enough to get there without booking in advance. One of the biggest advantages of this exhibition is the professional guide who will walk you through the Bunker history, Boros family and the... More

first thing - order tickets at least 2-3 weeks before - it gets pretty full fast + there are only guided tours. the art gallery holds many different project from various artist around the world. the setting is unique and has a very interesting history.

I was in Berlin for 12 days starting June 5. I really wanted to see this. I did not have an advance reservation, but just happened to walk in just as an English tour was starting. On the half hour, don't remember if it was at 1 or 1:30. I found the art to be pretty cool but not as... More

It is private, you can only visit it by booking well in advance a guided tour and places are very limited. The entrance fee is not excessive (12 euro pp) though and the audience is really very diverse and young. But above all, this is a very nice way to discover and understand contemporary (German) art of the highest quality.... More

A bunker bought by a Berlin family is now a gallery for contemporary art. Only by appointment, you will be toured in German or English by well-trained guides. The space is as surprising as the collection.

Sip, stare and shop in secret in Berlin, Germany Some of Berlin’s finest bars, restaurants, shops and venues are hidden from view behind unmarked doors, in nondescript buildings and in other clandestine spaces. For one, beyond an anonymous steel door lies Tausend, a cosmopolitan drinking den tucked into a railway bridge. At Sammlung Boros, a Nazi-era bunker has been turned... More

In a building with an interesting story to it, Boros shows part of his collection which mainly consist of works from the 90s and forward. Works by artists like Ai Weiwei, Timmons, Clara Lidén etc can be viewed with a competent guide that you book beforehand. The collection is shown for groups of 12 people at a time. Rare combination...

A great guide took us through the private collection. The idea of a private collection where the owners set the art scene after their own heart is refreshing. The history of the bunker and the perseverance to see the project trough is impressive. Put on something warm though since it is really cold in there.
