We went to visit this Gallery because my husband wanted to see a specific painting that he loves which this Gallery houses. This gallery has a lot of beautiful beautiful art in it! Amazing sculptures and paintings. If you are an art lover, you should...More

We spent a very enjoyable few hours here but could imagine mixed reactions. We would recommend prospective visitors check the Gallery’s web site to see what’s on offer. The ‘French Impressionists’ gallery (2.03) is no doubt a big drawcard - it’s very good but relatively...More

Not worth the effort. I have been to galleries all over Europe and this is one of the worst, despite being in Berlin! The impressionist section is TINY! It has exactly 13 pieces, none of which are particularly special. The rest of the gallery is...More

A splendid walk through german masterpieces to the beginning of the 20th century. Highlights of course the Caspar David Friedrich Hall with 'A Monk Overlooking the Sea' amongst other great works of him. Together with a fine little collection of Monet, Pissarro, Renoir and a...More

Pros: Large collection of paintings from the 1800s. Cons: A few gems (e.g. the Caspar David Friedrich gallery, the von Stuck paintings) amongst a mostly average collection.

This gallery is a little tricky to get to, thanks to construction on Museum Island. This “Greek temple” primarily houses German art of the 1800’s, three floors of paintings and sculptures. The place was popular even on a cold day in November. (But at least...More

I went due the Museums Pass, but actually is kind of boring. With all due respect, German paintings are not considered among the best if you compared them to other European artist. The few French collection is well worth it.

I felt this reflected the vicissitudes of German international fortunes in recent history. There are some rooms full of German painters that are to me obscure. Some interesting impressionists and a sense overall that the whole art experience for Germany has been shaken up by...More

Have been before-the highlight is the lage central room of Impressionists. There are quite a few rooms full of gloomy portraits by minor artists. This time we booked tickets online-but when we got into the gallery the main reason for visiting-the Impressionists room , was...More

This is an interesting gallery but it differs markedly from those in western Europe. Most famous galleries today are like ice bergs with 60-70% of the artworks hidden from public view with only the best, or recently cleaned, or fully verified art on display. It...More

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

There is a small cafe with coffee/tea/cakes in the gift shop. There are plenty of great places to eat in the area. If you cross the bridge to the east toward the Hackescher Markt, there are a lot of cafes, restaurants and... More
