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!

This museum is named after its first curator, Wilhelm von Bode. Here you can see paintings and sculptures from Byzantium, German, Gothic and Italian medieval period and the Rennaisance, mainly with a religious subject. There are also collections of medals and coins. Personally, I'm not a big fan of this kind of art and if I knew it, I wouldn't... More

This museum presents a great collection of especially German and Italian gothic and Rennaisance sculpture. Also other countries or regions like France and Flanders are well presented. The baroque collection is interesting. The presentation is modern and with great taste, you can just enjoy walking arround. Visit and enjoy as a connaiseur or as an explorer of these masterpieces.

This is for people who are interested in European religious art which doesn't float my boat, personally. The building is wonderfully Baroque and splendid. We had it virtually to ourselves so if you would like a quiet hour, this is the place.

We only visited briefly -- you can do that with the museum pass -- but the two rotundas are marvellous and the cafe at the Bode is the best of the museum cafes. Dining in majestic surroundings.

A lovely looking museum which has paintings, sculptures and various altar pieces depicting religious scenes. Very well laid out and worth a visit.

We bought a museum pass and was our last museum on the Island to visit. It is probably the most beautiful of all. We enjoyed the Byzantine period the most. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially as we had an infant.

At the far end of Museum island you can visit this beautiful building with baroque and renaissance objects. Unfortunately lot of it was closed temporarily to the public, I don't know why.

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.
