The Bode-Museum, anchoring the north end of Museum Island, reopened its doors in 2006 after undergoing a massive renovation that turned a rather dark and dull building into a museum showplace. Here you’ll find a rich collection of German, French, Dutch, and Italian sculpture (marble, wood, bronze) from the Gothic to the Neoclassical periods. The museum also contains galleries with late-antique and Byzantine works and a major coin collection. The audio guide will help you navigate; give yourself at least a full hour just to graze the highlights.
