The Bode Museum on Berlin's Museum Island seems to rise out of water – the architect, Ernst von Ihne, arranged the impressive three-winged building around several inner courtyards, so that the exterior walls directly border the river Spree. The exhibition rooms offer wonderful views of the river.
First opened in 1904, the Bode Museum was closed for repairs from the mid 90’s to 2006. Today, the museum houses an extensive sculpture collection, a Byzantine Art collection (the only one of its kind in Germany), and one of the largest coin collections in the world.Address:
