Arranged over 3 floors, this museum offers a splendid collection of German painting. Easily spent 2 hours inside. There are also other non German artists' work such as French impressionists, van Gogh, etc. Only downside is about lighting. Lighting height in some rooms makes it...More

One of the main sites on museum island which is a really joy but exhausting if you try and visit all site on one day. A multi museum pass is a better bet - go see 'the thinker' and some of the other bronzes

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
