Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin

(4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • My 2nd visit to the museum. It is small, nice and with interesting collection of French impressionism. I must say I was there because of them - Monet, Renoir, Cezanne... There is a big German collecti...  more »
  • Is part of the 5 museums on the island and in my opinion is one of the most beautiful. Be prepared for a long visit, at least two hours are needed to turn it in the best way and equip yourself with audio guide.

  • Plenty of Romantic and Impressionist masterpieces and also a trove of Menzel. Once you have your museumpass in hand, you're kind of obligated to spend an afternoon here.

  • Great museum, with excellent audio guide to go with. Mostly (amazing) paintings but also some exquisite sculptures. I spent several hours walking about and the interior architecture made it both soothing and pleasant. Especially impressive how the modern architectural touch blends seamless in with the old. Friendly and to the point staff.
  • National Gallery housing Berlin's fine arts collection. Had to give it a pass for myself, but those interested in the arts should venture inside.
  • Liked it a lot. It is a medium size Museum, if you have been to the Louvre, British Museum or anywhere at Italy, you won't be impressed.
  • Worth a visit. Has nice exhibits and walking around at night is quite nice too.
  • Прекрасный музей, галерея. Провел в нем больше 2 часов, наслаждаясь работами Мане, Менцеля, Коринта и Либермана. Замечательная атмосфера внутри. 3 этажа, прекрасные залы, удобный гардероб и туалет. 10€ за вход.
