Albertinum, Dresden

4.4
#9 of 31 in Museums in Dresden
A modern art museum in Dresden's historic center, Albertinum presents both paintings and sculptures from Romanticism to the present. In addition to the main collection, the museum features the Galerie Neue Meister (New Masters gallery), with works by Otto Dix, Vincent Van Gogh, and Claude Monet, and the Skulpturensammlung (sculpture collection), which form two interconnected spaces. The building dates back to 1887, but it suffered damage during 1945's World War II bombing and during 2002's floods. Reopened in 2010, the modernized facility allows you to gaze into the building's depositories through glass-fronted displays, giving you a look at the museum's inner workings.

  • The Albertinum houses a collection of late 19th and 20th century art and sculpture in a vast and intelligently restored palace in the heart of Dresden. Lots to see including German impressionists and ...  more »
  • I enjoyed this Museum, whose building is very beautiful. The sculptures like paintings are very beautiful. I particularly enjoyed see three paintings of Paula Modersohn-Becker, painter born in Dresden, that I discovered recently.

  • Slight mixed bag here- laod out very well, sort of chronologically. Beautiful artwork from Caspar David Friedrich, Degas, and many many more wonderful artists including lots of German artists lesser known outside of Germany. Some amazing and powerful pieces in this gallery for sure and you will discover some great artists here. However, there are also some "just a square" paintings. If you like that sort of thing, good for you. Not my cup tea though. You can basically breeze through the last few rooms if you're not interested in this sort of trite po-mo anti-art stuff. Still worth the visit though.
  • It has a good collection of paintings of famous artists. Totally recommend to visit, especially for those who love imressionism
  • I really enjoyed this museum in Dresden the most, but probably because I am generally a fan of the new masters, especially expressionism.
  • It has a limited collection and focused art pieces
  • interesting museum with nice exhibitions, though nothing really special about it. I would say it is a bit over rated. but the sculpture hall was very nice, also the security guy was very pleasant there

Where to stay in Dresden

The Old City, or Altstadt district, is the city's historical center. You'll find a wide selection of accommodations around the major tourist sites. For an area that stays active both day and night, consider lodging in Aussere Neustadt, located northeast of the Old City. The Hellerau District has an urban and hip vibe, thanks to the fashionable young locals who populate the area. Boutique hotels contribute to the area's chic feel.
