Getting to see one of the few bunkers that is accessible to the public was worth the visit alone. Especially with its interesting history in the music and club scene. Now it houses an extraordinary collection of contemporary art. Our tour guide, Christian, was thoughtful and informative without intruding in the experience of the aesthetic. We particularly enjoyed the works... More

If you like both modern art and history, this is the perfect place: a WWII bunker filled with amazing art from a small number of artists (at least in the current collection; it changes in 2016). The building is as prominent as the art, is in fact integrated into some of the pieces. Definitely worth a visit if you can... More

I LOVED this place! I'm an artist and also interested in the history of Berlin. This building is incredibly interesting. The original machinery for bringing in air and water is still in place along with original and restored signs on the walls from when it was a bunker for the people of Berlin. The walls are about 4 feet thick.... More

First of all, if you want to go (especially on a weekend), book well in advance. When we booked our tour, the next available slot was over a month from the day of the booking. The experience was pretty cool. It definitely felt more original than other modern art galleries. The bunker itself was really interesting and had been transformed... More

Book tickets and do the private tour! The building itself, and its fascinating history, are worth the trip. The art is modern and unique and, in some cases, for me anyway, a little weird. However, we all loved it and highly recommend it as something unique (trust me, not everyone does this) when you are in Berlin. Fascinating.

The actual bunker structure is the most interesting part of this experience; however, there are a few pieces of modern art that make you think twice. Most of the artwork was not to my taste and I was hoping to be blown away. Lower your expectations and you will find it more enjoyable.

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
