The Bunker building is fascinating in itself - walls 1.8m and roof >3m reinforced concrete. The art collection within is mesmerizing with a great guide to explain their background. A must see for those who like modern art

This is a very unique private modern art collection which is housed in a WW 2 Bunker!!! There are huge pieces which take up an entire room. It is necessary to book in advance. This is definitely one of a kind and not to be missed if you are a aficionado of modern art. The Bunker is as interesting as... More

You have to book in advance at htis private Modern Art museum, but in the low season you might get lucky while in town for a few days. Great location (old WWII bunker), very helpfull and informed guides. You usually don't have time to see all the pieces but get a personalised (small group) tour. Must visit for art lovers

Yes, all the former inputs I have read were correct: book in advance (no prepayment needed); the location and the context are part of the experience: once a bunker for civilians in WWII, a prison during soviet regime and later a dark club.... Tour in small groups, very informative guides!

Book in advance if you can ... if not, keep checking the website (we were lucky enough to get two tickets, possibly cancellations, at less than 24 hours notice). This gallery outshines the Saatchi collection and White Cube galleries and their ilk, in London by a mile ... the collection was brought to life by the wonderfully enthusiastic, and knowledgeable,...

Great selection of modern art (mostly installations) - even greater space. The repurposed bunker and its walls are dripping with history. Book in advance as tours are often booked fully up weeks or months in advance. Be aware that you need to climb a lot of stairs on the tours.

Pro tip: Book early. This modern art space is well worth the planning. A re-purposed bunker, replete with bullet holes adorning its facade and internals is both a bleak and beautiful reminder of our modern history. Our host was also deeply knowledgeable of the building's history and re-purposing.

Despite what they infer on their website they do not have any art to see unless you've reserved several months in advance. It seems their approach is pretty intense so you understand every detail. If you're clear about seeing art and you know your art, then don't bother. If you're there for a bunker experience then you might find easier... More

This art collection is housed in a former bunker in Berlin. If I remember correctly, the city of Berlin sold a lot of buildings and things after the German reunification. The Boros family (hence the name- "Sammlung Boros= Boros Collection) bought this bunker, did all kinds of work on it, and put a penthouse on top. Apparently before that, it... 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.
