Albertinum, Dresden

4.4
#9 of 23 in Museums in Dresden
Art Museum Museum
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.

  • Unique painting of several eras up to the modern era give rise to the joyous astonishment about the art.

  • Initially I had placed in the background, in our two-day stay, then found the time and spent three hours there. Place not yet well defined, okay the Gallery new masters (super), fine plasters (with Rodin and many masters), curious old quarter where there is a mosaic one, some archaeological remains not much valued, then, in the midst of this area (in the proper sense in between!) I saw a show that could be very interesting but with no explanation in English ... Even here, with ten euros, deserves great

  • In the Gallery of new masters, you will discover paintings by German masters, but also french of the XIX century. The Gallery of sculptures is also impressive

  • The Albertinum is definitely a must-see for all artlovers visiting Dresden. the expositions are curated is such a way that they show the progression of sculpture and painting from Romanticism to the present. From this I got a better understanding how different schools relate to each other and enrich each other. I also discovered some new artists I really liked. In addition to the expositions there was a very interesting performance piece going on in the courtyard of the museum. This certainly added to the experience.
  • Really good place to look sculptures and art! You need one afternoon to see it all.
  • Just right next to Dresden’s Academy of Fine Arts, the Albertinum is a gallery dedicated to the modern art. The New Masters Gallery (contrast to the Old Masters at the Zwinger) showcases Romantic era pieces to present day art pieces by contemporary artists.
  • Fantastic large space museum! Great even for just a quiet moment with a coffee and some silence for the soul!
  • Many nice items but too messy

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.
