Went there for 'One God' exhibition, and was worth it!

I originally did not plan to visit this museum. There is an exhibition going on called 'One God- Abraham's heir on Nile'. I went for it and I am glad I did. It was really... read more

We went to the Bode Museum to specifically see the Coins & Medals section. It also houses sculptures & paintings. The majority of the museum was documented in English or suplplemented by the Audio Guide. Then we got to the Coins & Medals section that we wanted to see & there was NO English documentation in the cases. There was... More

Lots of sculptures and paintings from the Roman period and as an avid fan of everything about this period I really enjoyed. There were things that was just as good as the museums in Rome (of course in smaller quantities and not all were breathtaking but it was a good surprise for me). There were also a lot of pictures...

I originally did not plan to visit this museum. There is an exhibition going on called 'One God- Abraham's heir on Nile'. I went for it and I am glad I did. It was really impressive. No photos allowed in that section. The building is really nice. Did not have time to see its regular exhibits.

Our visit in Berlin was short and we spent an entire morning in museum island. I think I could have skipped this one. Nice cafe though

The building of the Bode Museum is very interesting. The most interesting exhibition we visited was a temporary one, dealing with and comparing the roots of the 3 monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, named One God, which is highly recommended. It is worthwhile to buy a daily ticket if you plan to visit any of the other 4... More

Only opened in 1904 it was closed in 1997 for nine years for a 156 million euro refurbishment. This museum contains sculptures, Byzantine Art, coins and medal collections. In fact it has one of the world's greatest coin collections. The Entrance hall contains a beautiful equestrian bronze statue and two magnificent spiral marble stair cases. On the first floor is...

This exceptional collection is a "sleeper" The Gothic pieces, sculpture mostly is of a consistently high quality. It was not my favourite period of art, but this museum has changed my opinion. I was stunned by the beauty, the power of the realist figures whether in triptych or a portrait. This is a not to be missed museum for anyone... More

Among the museum island attraction this looked as the poorer. The building is beautiful but the collection if not that much. It was not a coincidence it was the museum with less crowding. Have a look just if you bought the area ticket.

The museum is of course fantastic and world class. The cafe-bar over looks the main entrance area with its equestrian statue of the Great Elector so one of the great places to stop and have great coffee and cake before you start the cultural trail again.

This amazing building impressed me from the beginning with its imposing architecture to the end, after discovering so many impressive work of art and history. Special attention to the Byzantine art and culture. Splendorous!

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.
