Andreas Schülter: Exploring Berlin's Baroque Art at the Bode Museum

Known as the Michelangelo of the north, Andreas Schülter was a baroque artist that help shape Berlin's architecture and art during the 17th century. To mark the 300th anniversary of his death, the Bode Museum is currently presenting an exhibition of his work. The exhibition has gotten a lot of favorable press but not many visitors.

I'm not particularly fond of Baroque painting, sculpture, or architecture, but I always enjoy visiting the Bode. The Museum was completely renovated a few years back, and this exhibition is a good excuse to see the Museum and its wonderful collection. A word of caution: the Bode emphasizes sculpture, so if sculpture isn't your thing, this museum is probably not for you.
