I live in Berlin for almost a decade and since yesterday I visited all the Museum Island museums, except the Bode. So, yesterday I decided to go there with another history loving friend. I will highly recommend the place to people with some prior knowledge vis-a-vis Roman empire History and the middle ages. It is not a huge museum, and... More

Another outstanding museum located on Museum Island, the impressive baroque Bode is home to the Sculpture Collection and Museum of Byzantine Art (the Byzantine art collection and the coin cabinet are especially noteworthy). Recommend

Spacious museum containing large collection of art from different periods. Unfortunately, the exhibit is typical, therefore not breathtaking.

The Bode Museum an important attraction at Museum Island in Berlin. Here you will find Byzantine, Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque period sculptures, artworks, coins, medals and other artefacts spaced over two floors of a beautiful neo-classical building situated at the northwest point of Museum Island. The Bode Museum is open from 10am to 6pm daily with extended hours to 8pm... More

An art gallery which juxtaposes sculpture and paintings from different periods in the most amazing space. Unlike so many galleries there is room to breathe and also to appreciate this wonderful building. A good bookshop too.

The museum is quite good. Mostly there are sculptures from all periods, but a few paintings too, including one Raphael. I had a museumpass, so did not pay anything. There were few visitors when I went there, so it is calm. The lay out of the museum is interesting. Maybe not as famous as other museums on museum island, but... More

Rather boring. Lots of lumpen religious statuary. Huge numismatic and medal collection if that is where your interests lie. Otherwise save your legs for the other museums on the island.

Perhaps, as my husband has suggested, it is my Presbyterian upbringing but I did not find much in this museum to excite me. Perhaps it was museum overload as we had just spent many hours in the Neues Museum and the art gallery and I may have enjoyed it more if we had visited it first. Perhaps I have not... More

You can see: 1) Sculpture collection (it is presented a complete history of the European sculpture). 2)Byzantine art,( roman sarcophaguses, early Christian iconography,etc). 3) Nomismatic collection from the old ages till now.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
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 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 neighbourhood’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.
