All the major schools of European art are represented. It was interesting to see Botticelli's Venus, a subset of the Birth of Venus that hangs in the Uffizi in Florence. The advantage here is that one can get a good look as there are not so many visitors. Similarly for some Venetian scenes by Canaletto. There was a free headset... More

A museum full of eye-popping paintings by the masters. You'll find the architecture of the museum surprisingly modern. The number of paintings on display is overwhelming. Be prepared to spend a significant amount of time during your visit.

This is a great museum with an impressive collection of old masters including Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Dürer, Rubens and many more. There is a lot of religious art. The audio guides are very good, but this museum visit would probably be too heavy for small children. The only negative for me here was the 12 euro salad at the adjoining cafeteria.... More

If you want paintings by some of the greatest of the Old Masters, this is the place. Rembrandt, Rbens, Titian and Caravaggio to name but a few.

This is one of the finest art galleries on the world, particularly for North European paintings - Van Eyck, Durer, van der Weyden, Vermeer, de Hooch, Rembrandt, et al. Wonderful works of art, beautifully displayed. Not to be missed! And don't miss the beautiful Botticelli in the last room - the Madonna & Lillies is possibly the most beautiful and... More

This museum has a very nice collection of paintings including a Vermeer. The have many by Rembrandt and Lucas Cranach and an entire room of Rubin's too. Nicely laid out so you can just wander through time via the paintings.

The Gemaldegalerie is too large to take in in one session. It is an enormous collection of art from the 15th Century through to the 19th. Room after room of beautiful art is displayed, mainly religious in subject, and each painting alone could warrant deep study and reflection. My recommendation is to take this collection in a number of bites... More

This is a large picture gallery, and I would recommend multiple visits instead of trying to see everything in one visit and get a sensory overload. The gallery is divided into Flemish/German paintings in one wing and Italian in the other, so you could tailor your visit accordingly. The 8 large panels of Hans Multscher, showing the story of the... More

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.
