Fascinating works of art - you could visit every day for a week and still not see everything. I loved the headphones which come with the entry ticket and told you the story behind each work of art. Bit difficult to find as it isn't signposted for Gemaeldegalerie. Loved the Rembrandts. Just wish I could have spent more time here.

Masterpieces of European art. I believe more Van Der Weydens in one location than in any other gallery. There also were two Ver Meer works we had never seen before. Go to their website for a full 'picture' of their collection. If you love the " old stuff " you will enjoy the visit. Their cafeteria serves warm, good tasting... More

If you like paintings from XIII untill XVIII century, this is definitively a place to go, from Rembrandt, to Tiepolo, passing by the Flemish, Caravaggio and all other very famous painters of this period. This is absolutelly a place to go, very well organized.

It belongs to the KunstForum, an interesting and recommended complex of museums near the Philarmonic Hall and the Sony Center. Great exhibition, wonderful collection of renaissance and early modern art and painters. Outstanding XVIIth century paintings.

The galerie has lots of wonderful art work. I would not skip this. The nice aspect is the audio-guide is free when you pay for admission.

This was the top of my to do list for Berlin. Part of the KulturForum make sure you drop your rucksacks and coats with the cloakroom staff otherwise you'll be turned away from the door. Also make sure you go to the toilet by the cloakroom because once you get into the door of the galleries there is no loo... More

This museum is well laid out chronologically and geographically (north of Alps/south of Alps) with excellent diffused lighting and soft wall coverings that allow the artwork to be appreciated without distraction. The collection encompasses a great selection of older European Art pre-Impressionism with many Rembrandts, Botticelli, etc. Really enjoyed the excellent quality of the audio guide included with admission -...

Berlin, as well as Dresden and Leipzig, were all in the former East Germany. The Soviets ran off with all the best old masters art, and none of the art galleries we visited could compare with the better ones in the USA and rest of Europe. Contemporary art a different story. If that is your bag, there is plenty of... More

I visited this gallery as it was highly rated and within walking distance of my hotel. The gallery itself is easily accessed and uncrowded. In Rome we waited over 4 hours to get into the Uffizi! I do not know a lot about art but even I could appreciate the scope of this collection with works by Vermeer and Botticelli... More
