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

The art is mostly special modern installations, and I liked almost nothing. My partner did though. But you must visit this unique building!

All visits are conducted in groups accompanied with a guide and get totally booked up - so if you know you are visiting - book well in advance. We didn't - but decided to show up anyway and hope for a cancellation - and luckily we were invited in. A diverse collection installed by the artist themselves - it's fair... More

I like modern art and based on reviews had booked a ticket via their website when tickets for the time I was going to be in Berlin became available. Our guide was a fellow Australian Georgie and she was excellent and took time to explain the history of the building and each art installations, the one and half hours went... More

Astounding building, with history that brings you in to Berlin's reality from war to now. Really good introduction if you don't know so much of modern art. Do book two month's before, it's really hard to get ticket later than that.

Definitely an impressive art collection in a very special place, an old bunker. You need to book a guided tour and you need to book well in advance due to high demand. You can book online. The tour guides are highly motivated and knowledgable. A very enjoyable experience.

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.
