The man himself had an interesting life and research into his doings will lead to all sorts of entertaining avenues of discovery. The museum now is quiet, understated and apparently visited more by people interested in the sculptures and paintings in the museum for art's sake than for any hit list reason. Because of that there aren't too many people... More

This is a fabulous museum but only if you like religious art - painting and sculpture - from the middle ages to the renaissance. If you do, and I very much do, it is a little slice of heaven. The rooms are arranged thoughtfully and each left me feeling in awe of the workmanship and the wonder. The coin collection... More

The Bode Museum is located at the extremity of the Museum Island in Berlin. It holds a very comprehensive collection of art - with exceptional sections dedicated to Medieval and Early Renaissance Art. The Byzantine section is also very rich and diverse, frankly we did not have the physical power and time to enjoy it, so we will be back.... More

I love the Bode -- a sterling, beautiful museum. I love the collections and the fine curatorial direction. The museum is large and well organised. My favourite rooms is the Byzantine room-there is a Ravenna mosaic from 545 C.E. a stunning piece. This mosaic is great to see as it is the mosaic from or outside of Ravenna that you... More

This has a lot of religious relics which are beautiful, but this one we could have skipped in favor of more time at the Neues Museum.

The entrance to the Museum is majestic and spectacular. The visit is worth it just for wandering around the building itself. It houses collections of religious relics, coins, medals and stunning sculptures. The icing on the cake was catching Holbein's 'The Madonna of Meyer Mayor'

Located on a tip of the Museum Island, this should be anyone's first stop, because of both its position and its collection of ancient Greek and Roman artifacts. The medieval rooms shouldn't be overlooked, either. It has a nice café on the third floor.

We visited Bode Museum at Easter time and enjoyed both guided tour and Easter Concert that we booked in advance. Experience was great and building was also very impressive. One of my favourites was the marble 'Dancer' looking so beautiful and real. There were also a lot of religious statues and that was fitting well to our Easter program. Museum... More

There ia an excellent collection of German and Italian sculptures, mainly religious art. The building of the museum is very nice as well. If yyou have a chance, than go to the opera performance which is in the museum!

The audio guide is worth less. Not worth it at all. The only interesting piece was the gambling machine! Otherwise, it's a poor collection.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
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.
