“german art”(37 reviews)

The collection of the Alte Nationalgalerie is one of the largest collection of art between the French Revolution and the First World War, between Classicism and secession. Unique is the harmony between the collection and the style of the building.

Definitely worth a walk through if you have the 3 day Museum pass otherwise I would give it a miss. A nice representation of German art but honestly the best is saved for the Bode in my opinion. Architecture wise the building is gorgeous, but...More

If you enjoy romantic, impressionist and realist att you can't go wrong here! The gallery hosts works by mostly german artists, and a few french impressionists (don't come just for them though). The gallery itself was purpose built in the 19th century and is a...More

This old museum is huge! The building is worth a visit (€12) just in itself. The collection is 90% German painting and most artists totally unknown to me. Did learn about Max Lieberman. There is one room with French Impressionism which a savvy 19th century...More

Well the sculpture is impressive but sadly not the Impressionists. It is well documented that Hitler thought that Impressionist art was degenerate and so it is hardly surprising that a Berlin gallery does not have the depth of works as a gallery in any other...More

Beautiful place. Excellent architecture. In the middle of the Museumsinsel. Full of tourists but a very impresive place!

Every country has a hidden gem. This may not be hidden but it is a gem. I am not well acquainted with German art but this is a great start. The sculpture is magnificent. There is a sense of space and intimacy simultaneously throughout the...More

Enjoyed perusing the artwork once I was eventually able to get in, but they were unable to accommodate my slightly larger rucksack that I happened to have with me at this time. This would have been okay, but each attendant kept sending me to a...More

Superb collection of art pieces. However, the museum strictly controls the number of visitors in the museum or at the top floor gallery at any one time, which means that queuing is inevitable at some time. I arrived early, about 45 minutes before opening time...More

I visited the Alte Nationalgalerie in August 2018 during my visit to Berlin. Since I prefer paintings to antiquities, this was my favorite museum on Museum Island. The building with its columns is very interesting and a photo opportunity. The museum focuses on German artists....More

There is a small cafe with coffee/tea/cakes in the gift shop. There are plenty of great places to eat in the area. If you cross the bridge to the east toward the Hackescher Markt, there are a lot of cafes, restaurants and... More
