Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin

3.4
#46 of 120 in Museums in Berlin
Neue Nationalgalerie, a museum of modern art, focuses on works from the 20th century. Before entering, take time to appreciate the iconic Modern building designed by German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Inside, study works by Edvard Munch, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter, and Andy Warhol. Step outside to admire the sculpture gardens, also designed by van der Rohe. If you hope to see a particular work, avoid disappointment by checking online before your visit to ensure that it will be on display. Only a small selection of the gallery's extensive collection can be shown at one time.

    For now this beautiful contemporary building is an empty skeleton. Jobs do not allow you to admire the beautiful collection of modern and contemporary art that here was housed and which it is hoped will come back. But this is a season of major restructuring and therefore there must be satisfied only the architectural lines.

    A beautiful architectural building with a steel frame and glass that reflect the buildings that surround it, closed for renovation, but the Park and beautiful to look at. I post pictures of my previous trip to Berlin when it was open.

    It's closed for months (or years) for reconstruction. Unfortunately it's not mentioned here so I was disappointed when I got there. A visit to the Kulturforum nearby made that up though.  more »

  • The building is a special experience itself, the exhibition was less interesting.
  • interesting architecture and exhibitions

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
