Christian Boros, often named the Charles Saatchi of Berlin, bought this 3,000 square metre Nazi-era bunker in 2004 to house his art collection. The space now offers a concise overview of the last 20 years in Berlin’s art scene.
The bunker once protected passengers of nearby Friedrichstraße Station, evolving into a tropical fruit warehouse known locally as the ‘banana bunker’ during the German Democratic Republic era. Before its conversion into a gallery, it was also home to a hardcore techno and fetish club that closed in the late 90s.
Arguably even more exciting that its fruitful history however, the bunker houses a fantastic permanent collection of contemporary works, featuring the likes of Ólafur Elíasson and Tobias Rehberger.
There’s a lengthy waiting list to join the guided tour (the only way to see the bunker) so book ahead. Keep an eye out when you’re touring it too – if you’re lucky you may bump into Boros himself, and get invited to his luxury apartment for a cocktail.
Sammlung Boros currently has no restaurants, cafes, or bars.
