If you like art history, you won't be disappointed. I can't believe I missed this museum on my last visit. A wonderful Giotto.

My first visit to this gallery but I would go back. I loved the Lucas Cranach paintings. I simply cannot remember much else because I loved them so much. I have been to other museums in Berlin before but not this one but would go back.

There are lots of museums in European cities with great collections. So is the Gemäldegalerie. I never knew that they had such a large collection of Dutch and Flemish masters of the 17th century. They own one of the largest collection of Rembrandt's in the world. We ended up staying for over four hours, much more than we anticipated, our... More

What is there to say about this collection? The Rembrandts alone make a visit worthwhile. The building itself is grim: 1950s brutalist architecture with an approach that would scare the timid, but the Gemaelde is moving and that's a good thing.

If there is one gallery to see in Berlin this is it. It doesn't get big wraps and is a little out of way of the museum district but well worth a couple of hours. The Rembrandt's are what stick in my mind, as well as the Dutch masters. Be sure to get an audio guide. Great seating throughout too.

I love Vermeer paintings and this gallery has two. Lots of seats to sit and look. But toilets are miles away and no coffee shop, unlike the stunning one in the Neues Pinakotek in Munich.

Lots of masterpieces of European art (old masters) in one place. Not too large but also not too small and overall not as crowded as some other museums. This makes the visit even more enjoyable.

Beautiful galleries filled with an amazing array of masterpieces. We especially appreciated the Bruegels, Rembrandts, Rubens and Vermeers. A clear rival with the Rijksmuseum and less crowded. Caravaggio's Amor Victorious is stunning.
