(550+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
Alte Nationalgalerie is part of the Staatliche Museen on Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Originally National Gallery (which has since been moved), the current gallery features Romantic, Neoclassic, Impressionist, and early Modernist artwork. The building itself is a work of art, representing "the unity of art, nation, and history," according to the designers. At intervals, it evokes a theater, a church, and a temple. See Alte Nationalgalerie and all Berlin has to offer by arranging your trip with our Berlin trip builder.

  • Definitely worth going to if you enjoy the painting styles of the 1800s (romanticism, impressionism, photo realistic portraiture, etc.), which I certainly do. The collection is consistently interesting throughout. It may not have as many famous paintings by well-known masters as some galleries, but for the extensive collection of German works, I'd say it's worth seeing. They also have a fabulous room with (mostly) lesser known works by many of the French impressionists, including at least one sculpture by Rodin that I'd never seen, and I love Rodin.

  • One of my favorite museums in Berlin. So many beautiful paintings and sculptures. A must if you visit the museum island.
  • Beautiful display of neo classical art! The statuary was the highlight in my opinion. Very nice museum to visit.
  • Beautiful collection of classic art! 4 floors of paintings, statues, and more. Really worth the visit!
