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.

Fascinating to hear the history of the place and then experience the art exhibit. Highly recommended.

Although I say it was a long tour in some ways I felt it wasn't long enough. There are five floors and our very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide rushed through it. It was only towards the end of our tour that we were warming as a group. I think that there is a trick missed here. A full day tour... More

Book before you leave home. This is a World War II bunker that has had many incarnations prior to being purchased by the Boros' to house their contemporary art collection. Our guide spoke fantastic English and the tour is limited to 10-12 people. My teenagers enjoyed interacting with the art and we really enjoyed the perspective of our philosophy major... More

Worth it for a tour of the building alone, which was built as an above-ground WWII bunker, designed to show that the Nazis weren't running scared of Allied bombs. Now home to a contemporary art collection showing big-scale 'spectacle' art in the best sense of the word - you can interact with some of the pieces in a way that... More

For everyone who likes to be where modern art and history meet: this is the right place. Nice postwar installations in a WWII bunker. They fit together perfectly. We had a charming and knowledgable guide.

Book a tour to get in, in English every hour on the half hour. You get to know the history of the building and everything that has gone on there and a tour through the floors and explanation a\of the different art pieces. The exhibition that is on now lasts until 2016. Some amazing pieces and our tour guide was... More
