Fantastic art gallery in the center of Dresden

Located in the historic buildings of Zwinger the Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister host a wide rage of paintings. The museum is surely worth a visit to anyone interested in paintings.

As I understood, a big part of exhibition is now on reconstruction. Also make sure you are not planning to visit it in Monday.

The collection is top class. You walk through the rooms to be constantly met by quality work. Don't miss Caravaggio's Cupid - one of the most striking paintings I've seen - and the views of Venice in the Renaissance section. Free audioguide

This is an amazing collection, very well laid out and not overwhelming. There is space enough to appreciate the works and the lighting is good. We spent hours there.

If you like art then is a place to go to and admire the wonderful collection of paintings they have there. Reserve a couple of hours at least to go through the gallery.

I dunno much about art but for a layman this musuem is interesting enough yet not too massive to bore you. Get the audio guide though.

The only surprise when visiting this art museum was that in some rooms the lighting seemed off. Frequently we had to move to different areas of a room to avoid glare from the lights. The collection is quite large and contains some wonderful pieces.
