This museum didn't find me so eager to visit it at first but when I entered in I really thought it was worth the money I spent. If you are into painting you will find some pretty known paintings in there.

This is a large gallery and it is worthwhile checking the plan of the building to make sure you have time to see your prefered art era. There are works from many countries (Dutch, Italian, British, Flemish) and eras from 13th century to early 19th century. Outstanding works include those of Vermeer, Hals, Durer, Giotto, Fra Angelico, and Botticelli, Rembrandt,... More

I literally spent about 3 hours in this place finally mentally tearing myself away. They had a special showing by Mario Testino and my ticket included a viewing of the museum next door which had a surprise history of fashion floor. Definitely worth a visit.

Terrific and well laid out. Took me 2.5 hours to do the whole circuit but the very good audio guide (not continuous, you get to choose what you want to hear) was informative, just the right amount of detail. The paintings are stunning, some of the 500 year old works have a technique and freshness that could have been painted... More

This gallery has some amazing Renaissance art both from Italy and Northern Europe. I really enjoyed seeing the Bosch and Brueghels. The included audio guide was very helpful. We went on a Friday morning and it was not crowded at all, which really surprised me. We spent about 4 hours, but easily could have spent more time.

This may not be the largest art museum one can visit, but whatever art works there are inside, they are world-class. I went there to specifically look at the two Vermeer paintings, and I was not disappointed. The day I was there it was not that crowded, making the walk-around lot more pleasant. If you are an art-lover and happen... More

This is a wonderful place for all those who love art. With an audio guide, you can spend hours watching and listening to the details of all these treasures. I loved it - particularly the Dutch paintings!!

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theaters close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
