The Best Ways To Spend A Rainy Sunday In Berlin

Fee Gross

Sundays are for flea market strolls, brunch with friends and spending time outside in the park. However, not every Sunday presents itself with great weather. To avoid Sunday night blues, here is a list of Berlin museums to visit on a rainy Sunday afternoon because a Sunday well spent gives you a week full of content.

Sammlung Boros Berlin

Berlinische Galerie

Located in East Berlin’s buzzy district Kreuzberg, Berlinische Galerie offers a well-curated collection of fine art, photography and architecture created in Berlin from 1870 to the present. The facility is a renovated former glass warehouse. Plenty of light, white walls and floors as well as fantastic interior design give the art enough space and light.

Martin-Gropius-Bau is one of the best known exhibition halls in Berlin. With works from artists like Ai Weiwei and Paul Klee, Martin-Gropius-Bau is a must-visit if you want to see some of the world’s most influential artists. The centerpiece of the museum is an atrium decorated with mosaics, which is just as impressive as some of the masterworks the museum displays.

2. Bode Museum
