Certainly one of the biggest collection of ancient sculpture in the world, if not the biggest (mainly of Italian and Germain origin). Berlin’s Münzkabinett might be the most important numismatic collections in the world, with over half a million objects. The building itself is beautiful...More

When I last visited the Bodemuseum it mainly served as a home to paintings that hadn't made it into the Gemaeldegalerie. This has changed; it still has some paintings, but these serve chiefly to supplement a wonderful collection of sculpture from the Byzantine era to...More

The Bode Museum is part of the Berlin State Museums complex by the Spree River on the so called Museum Island. Opened in 1904 and then called Kaiser-Friedrich-Museum, it is full of boring sculpture collections and late Antique and Byzantine art with lots of miserable...More

After getting recommendations from our tour guide of the Bode having a good café we went there for lunch. The limited menu was disappointing. Very few offerings. The food was good, but the selection was very small

The centre 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

Historical sculpture and painting, the majority of which is Germanic. Focus on Gothic wood carvings, very beautiful. The renaissance and other periods are covered, it is all exceptional examples of the period.
