Alte Pinakothek, Munich

(4.4/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
Three museums, each highlighting a different period of art, are housed at Alte Pinakothek. The museums are within walking distance of each other, so you can easily explore all three on foot or by bicycle. First, stop by one of the oldest art galleries in the country. It houses a collection of at least 800 masterpieces from the Middle Ages to the end of the Rococo period. Look for works by Durer, Rubens, and da Vinci, among others. Next, visit the gallery that displays about 400 paintings and sculptures from the 19th century. Highlights include works by Monet, Degas, and Renoir. Finally, explore the gallery opened in 2002 to display a vast collection of modern art. Here, you'll find notable pieces by Picasso, Kandinsky, and Warhol. Purchase a day ticket for all three museums online. Add Alte Pinakothek and other attractions to your Munich trip itinerary using our Munich trip itinerary planner.

  • It was only on the part of the Museum that offers fine art. Became hugely pleasantly surprised over the big collections of old master-Rubens, Rembrandt, Raphael, da Vinci, van Dyck ... to name a few. Wonderful icon painting from the 1200 's, too. And admission is only $5, and that includes headphones with information regarding several of the major masterpieces-available in English (in addition to German, of course). A very visitor-friendly art museum, with plenty of seating for those who wanted to stick around for a while and watch and enjoy a particular work of art.

  • Wings 物々shiku under construction it takes until 2018, he said. Dislike Dürer did not exhibit only self-portrait 1 premonitions come true, altdorfer, Spain paintings didn't. Dinner still Lippi, Raphael, Ghirlandaio, Leonardo da Vinci, Perugino, Filipino Lippi, Italy painting up. Adam Elsheimer inspired many painters such as Rembrandt, Rubens, Claude Lorrain and had two points. All his paintings are portrayed in oil on copper. There are etchings.

  • Old art gallery with masterpieces from Rubens, Da Vinci, Botticelli, Dürer and many others. I highly recommend to visit.
  • Great selection of impressive works. About half the museum was inaccessible due to renovations when I went, but even half the collection was worth the relatively cheap admission when combined the other museums.
  • I was amazed by the detail and color of all the art work. Half of the permanent exhibit is closed due to renovations so the entry is 4 Euro. If you'd like to see the special exhibit the price for both is 8. It's a quick ride on the 27 tram from Karlsplatz.
  • To say this gallery is under construction is an under statement . More than 90% of the galley is closed till 2018 so why bother keeping this place open and charge 4 euros entry. They do not honor the 2 euro discounted entry charge. Completely disappointed with this one. Best to pass on it till 2018 when there is actually something to see.
  • Great museum. But some sections are closed due to renovation until 2018.
