  • The images of the current special exhibition are not recommended, nor the modern art. In the permanent exhibition, the pictures had hung very geprömelt. There were about 20 beautiful images in the entire Kunsthalle.

  • The collection of the Kunsthalle has world-class - especially concerning the German art of the 19th century (Ph.O.Runge, C.D.Friedrich). That at the time of our visit ongoing, very well done by surrealists from four private collections exhibit many us previously unknown, important works by artists such as A. R. Magritte, Giacometti, Max Ernst and others, accompanied by interesting, informative short films to collectors. Amazing unprofessional, i.e. the internal direction signs (signage) is abysmal. We wanted from the collection to the "cube" - the restaurant at the Galerie der Gegenwart - which was to create only with the help of friendly supervisors - the Plänchen and the signs were useless.

  • I was looking for an indoor attraction where you can spend a cold and rainy afternoon. I was undecided whether or not to visit this Museum, but the weather conditions I removed all doubt. The Museum is clearly visible just outside Central station. The entrance ticket at first I thought its not cheap and the initials deserve just a fleeting glimpse, without too many second thoughts. Then, finally you get to the room dedicated to Caspar David Friedrich, which makes the major Museum in Europe and that alone is worth the price of admission. There are at least two big-ticket items of the German painter and all the romance, such as "the sea of ice" and the famous "wanderer above the sea of fog". The Museum was little crowded, even on a rainy day. Also point out a rich section devoted to Impressionism with Manet and Monet two.
