  • Fabulous Museum where there are paintings to suit everyone. itele Dutch, British, French and Italian. Beaming Giotto with two-dimensional, dreamy painting leda and the Swan, Caravaggio shameless, British romantics and wrapped in a nebbiolo to Pixie wonderful portraits; and a mysterious "ideal city", brother of one of Urbino.

  • Several days after the end of the exhibition of the Spain still several rooms, including the great courtyard were inaccessible, while it had already closed more rooms for the yet unopened Bosch exhibition. Berlin's create perhaps precisely during the event to visit the House, but foreign can hardly escape this unpleasant intermediate phases. Because the walls had a very stable, we asked whether they would remain in the long term, what was unfortunately also answered in the affirmative. With elimination of the Middle Hall, his generosity is taken home. Also missing back and forth to go between the Northern schools, was what actually part of the concept. You don't ask what has become of the fountain by Walter de Maria in the middle of the room, probably better.

  • I had visited this extraordinary and rich picture gallery in my two previous visits to Berlin. I must say that impressed me greatly. We start with many masterpieces of Italian art including two beautiful tables of Giotto, Botticelli, Filippo Lippi, Mantegna, then various Mantegna, Raphael, Titian, Bronzino, Caravaggio, German painters including Lucas Cranach, Flemings including two Vermeer, Memling, Van Dyck, Rubens, various Rembrandt. Audioguide in Italian included in the ticket price, including Gallery in the Museum Card and in Berlin. You can reach the Metro of Potsdamer Platz, then four bus stops. Not to be missed if you are interested in art.

  • One of the best art museum, great collection of Renaissance and Northen Europe painters. And NO people. You can admire Vermeer or Titian absolutely alone
  • Beautiful permanent exhibition showing the masters of painting. The lighting is a bit problematic, but still. I've been twice, and both times the special exhibition was also wonderful.
  • Favourite museum in Berlin for art lovers. Has an amazing collection of classics. The museum is very spacious and guarantees a few hours of art viewing in a serene environment.
  • Lots of important works here, it's large. It's also quiet, being out of the way. However it's a modern building and this detracted a bit for me. Also like a rabbit warren, you'll get lost easily
  • I spent much more time here than I had expected. It has a number of great artists' paintings. But I could not buy an English version of guide book in its bookshop. There were only german and french ones. What a shame...
