  • When you visit the best thing about this place seems to be less visitors. Seeing art in a quiet atmosphere can be milked on the watch. Exhibition opens the doors to enter the most eclectic, is

  • Museum, uniting in their collection Sculpture collection, as well as the collection of the Museum of Byzantine art and the monetary Office, from my point of view, is included in the best top five museums in Berlin. He appeared on Museum Island at the beginning of the last century. If you are a lover of sculptures and frescos by Tiepolo admirer, you may not be able to visit this wonderful Museum.

  • In an airy Museum Grand setting in which it circulates well and presents with explanations in German and English of many sculptures of all origins and times including a few rarities for example a Byzantine subject that allowed people to bet on races of tanks then even they couldn't attend because not enter places. Free pictures without flash.

  • At the northern tip of the Museum Island is the Bode. I confess, my interest in the Bode has less to do with its collection, which is impressive no doubt but with its exterior and its position on the banks of the Spree.  The Bode holds collections of art and sculpture, many from the Byzantine period. Its collection might not be as vast or impressive compared to others in the region but the building itself is worth a visit. The main Entrance Hall for example holds the brooding statue of the Great Elector before a grand staircase.  During my visit I managed to catch the Holbein exhibition in the Bode.
  • There's a very large amount of interesting sculpture ! You need to go if you have the additional time in Berlin.
  • From all the museums on the island this one was the least interesting. The bulding itself is stunning, but the exhibition wasnt really interesting, but that ofcourse depends on personal taste.
  • Good museum and well laid out. A bit repetitive if you're not into medieval art.
  • Superb sculpture collection in a beautiful restored building which was heavily damaged in WW2. Also, an excellent display on coinage which draws on the Bode's unparalleled collection of over half a million coins.
