The art in the Berlin Gemaldegalerie, part of the Kulturforum complex, is first rate; almost every work is a masterpiece. The museum covers European painting from the Gothic to the Baroque and is divided into Southern Europe (mostly Italian) and Northern Europe (Germany, Low Countries) sections. The free audio guide that comes with the price of admission is excellent -... More

Architecturally, the Kulturforum doesn't look to be as serious about art as the Museum Island but, in fact, there is more interesting and substantial art here than there. Unfortunately, the principal museum of the Kulturforum is the Gemaldegalerie, which, as a building, looks less like a museum and more like an addition that your uncle with bad taste did-it-himself to...

During my one-month stay in Berlin I had the chance to visit this place; a Picasso exhibition was issued and, by simply showing my Italian ID, I had the sudent discount so with just 4 euros I enjoyed some of Picasso's best works.

During my October holiday I visited the Pablo Picasso exhibition - superb. The Luxury of Fashion exhibition, very interesting, following the development of fashion from the 1950's. Overall this is a beautifully designed gallery, open with plenty of natural light. Like most galleries it had one flaw, lack of seating. When I see a painting that attracts me I like... More

The woman at the entrance wasn't willing to give me a student discount because my student card was valid for 2012-2013 even though I explained to her that our new school year hadn't started yet, so we had to pay double the price (every other place had no problem whatsoever). The exhibit was nice and interesting, but you get the... More

I only went to the Gemalde Galerie inside th Kulturforum, and while it is not the largest art museum around, it is filled with many, many, high-quality works. Of all the musems I went to in Berlin I would say if you only have time to visit one, this should be it.

This collection of Old Master paintings must be one of the best in the world. From 1200 to 1800 the sheer number of important paintings is breathtaking. All the great painters are represented and the layout is one of the most sensible I have ever experienced. The building was specially designed to house the collection and, while it is possible...

The Kunstgewerbemuseum displays arts from all post-classical periods of art history (gold, silver, glass, porcelain, furniture and large tapestries). The so-called "New Collection" is arts and crafts of the twentieth century (furniture by Eames, Knoll, Kartell). You can get turned around and confused on how to get out of the exhibits, be patient or ask for "Information" (you'll see your... More
