This is as far as I know the only surviving bunker of this type in Berlin. It is definitely not pretty. An ugly cement colossus, several stories high. Originally built for 3000 people, but we were told that during the Second World War as many as 30.000 people were crammed into it. You cannot just visit the place. You have to make reservations beforehand. The bunker has been converted into a museum for contemporary art by its present private owner who by the way has built himself a penthouse on top of the thing. If you are into installation art, this is the place to go. If you are not, maybe you can find better things to do. I did appreciate the Wei-Wei tree though.The owner has had certain modifications done to the bunker in order to make it suitable for an art museum, but most of it stands as it was built because - believe it or not - the bunker is under "Denkmalschutz", i.e. it is protected. Don`t say the Germans lack humour !
