Staggering. We visited in July 2016, the only booking left (the very last of the season) was for a tour in German, however our guide was delighted to intersperse English into her fascinating commentaries. The building and the collection are intertwined in the most spectacular way - of all the amazing things to see and do in Berlin, this was... More

This is the second time I visited the Bunker and it was a great experience again! Whenever you like contemporary art, this is a must see in Berlin, set in an amazing and historically very interesting setting. You need to book your visit in advance, as they only let 12 people in at the time. But for that you get... More

This is a wonderful attraction for two reasons: It's a signature collection of modern art (make of that what you will) curated by wealthy Germans; but even better is that it's housed in a converted wartime bunker, maybe the last intact one of its kind. It's worth visiting the outside just to see concrete Reich-era architecture (pocked with small-arms fire... More

My son bought tickets to this in advance...it is needed. It fills up fast. This is an old bunker, left over from Hitler days and the way our guide explained the bunker is that there were similiar buildings in other areas of town, but if there was an air strike near this bunker, the people that lived in the area...

Loved our guided visit from an enthusiastic young clothing design student. The bunker itself was fascinating, one could only imagine what it would have been like during the war here, crammed in like sardines and bombs falling all around Berlin. The artwork was interesting, some to our taste and some not as is usually the case with modern art. A... More

Through an acquaintance I had heard about the Boros Samlung. She had been there with 2 kids and they were very excited. Contemporary art is it really something for children? Yes of course, if you exhibit it in an old bunker from the Hitler time. A building with a fantastic history, the war, the DDR time and then the fetich... More

This gallery is amazing. Yes, you have to book four months in advance but it is so incredibly worth it.

The only good thing about this place is the building. We went on an English tour. The tour guide was awful - she stated the obvious about the art and didn't know much information about the artists or techniques. The collection was also pretty bad. It's worth going once to see the building. I will not be returning.

Must reserve ahead. Fascinating history - be sure to ask about it. WWII bunker (unusual to be above-ground); storage facility (stored fruits/veg shipped-in from Cuba for the East Berlin elites); Disco/Sex Club/Performance Space; Art Gallery; Private Home. A group tour is fine; no-need for a private tour. This is the most important and prominent art/architecture gallery to see as it... More

A great visit! The bunker itself is already a great story to begin with. Guided tour is helpful in understanding the art pieces as well as the bunker itself. Please book early in advance to avoid disappointment. The tour itself is 90 mins.

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.
