If the goal of artwork is to make people think and explore concepts outside of their comfort zone and to experience works that engage multiple senses, it is wildly successfull! Our guide, Clement was brilliant in sharing the history of the bunker, and providing insight into what the artists were trying to achieve and alternative interpretations. To experience this in...

This must be Berlin at it's most Berlin, a private art collection displayed in an East German war bunker, which was later used as a location for raves. The art is all very modern, and you can only visit on a tour. When we visited there had luckily been a cancellation, since the next open spot was in 10 weeks.... More

You must reserve ahead for the obligatory 90 minute tour in your language of choice. Good docent / guides explain a bit of history and tell you quite a bit about the contemporary installations here. Unfortunately, much of the work is uninspiring. An overfilling popcorn cart here, a few pushbrooms with exaggerated handles there etc. overall only recommended for serious... More

"This is not a museum, and not an art gallery", the guide said. Boros collection is a private modern art collection showcasing 150 pieces of post 1991 art. The collection is situated in a WW2 bunker previously used by railway employees. There is no sign at the door and you need to book a guided tour to get in. Book... More

Just to be inside that building make you feel strange. The magnitude. The rudeness of the construction invite you to Think. To Analysis in a deepest way the works of art that you find there Do not miss it. If contemporary art is of your interes

The Boros collection is incredible! The former bunker has been turned into a family home with four floors of art installations available by appointment to tour. Installations from the Boros' collection are site-specific and represent the recent works of cutting edge artists in modern conceptual art. The docent was excellent, providing an overview of the works and information about the... More

Had a private tour with my school group. The building itself is awesome - so much history and now as a gallery. It's just amazing. The work i saw included a mix of huge art names and lesser known artists. Great collection. I'm so in love with this place. Def try check it out if you're in the area! Visited... More

Like the cat plays with mice, Boros plays with art and you. There is no escape from this Bunker. Massive and impressive the history of the buiding, not long ago a nightclub like the Kit-kat, with darkrooms, now the show off of an advertising tycoon with lovely playing children watching and commentimg the visitors from their penthouse on the roof....

I found it was amazing even for those who have no particular interest for contemporary art. Sure, there are some boring pieces, but one cannot expect to love everything. There were interesting, beautiful and likable things a plenty. And the building is an experience on itself. It was a Second World War bunker, a prison, food storage, an alternative nightclub...

Staying in Mitte

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.
