While the building is fascinating and has an unusual history, once you are there the expectation is that you not leave for at least 90 minutes. This is organized as a tour which you must go through and complete on the whim and organization of the tour guide. You can't go at your own pace meaning you can neither linger... More

Do not be turned off if you are not a fan of contemporary art. The collection is conceptual, to be sure. However, if you keep an open mind a fascinating experience awaits. Information is given by the guide on the history of the bunker as well as the collection. Parts of the structure have been altered facilitating multiple views of... More

The bunker is very cool. I wish there was more information about it during the tour. My guide was mediocre -- she just said things were "political" but failed to explain how or why. Her explanations and descriptions of the art seemed too rehearsed and forced. I felt I could contribute more to the discussion about Ai's piece from what... More

And cool on a hot day :) The whole family enjoyed this. 8 year old was never bored during the 90 minute tour -- walking through this strange building with every room exhibiting something unexpected. The guide was excellent and I appreciated the tour, which added insights that I would never be aware of otherwise.

don't do my mistake and think you can book some days before, you will need to reserve a visit couple months in advance so you make sure you can visit. i still went to see the building from outside though. it's one HUGE bunker, i really liked it. make sure to check banksy graffiti at the bottom.

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

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.
