Great museum with great works from the masters. You can see a lot of Dutch paintings and also the el siglo de oro exhibition until the end of October. You need at least three hours to see and digest all the art works. We paid 14 euros for entrance fee and I believe it's worth it.

Definitely allocate a number of hours to this Art Gallery. We thought we could skip round the pictures especially the older masters which we usually find boring BUT not this time. After two and a half hours we were only part way round and had to abandon to restart next day. Again definitely worth getting the FREE audio to describe... More

This is a fantastic art gallery in Berlin's Kulturforum. It oontains a very impressive collection of works. Lots of Rembrandt, Cranach, and many others including Durer, Vermeer, Caravaggio, Holbein and so much more. It's wonderful to so the collection together again after its separation following the war. Photography is allowed (without flash) throughout the gallery, except in special exhibitions.

Having seen many important museums at many world cities like NYC, London, Paris, Rome etc. we took Gemaldegalerie in our itenary because it was very high ranked at this list. We were very frustrated as the pictures in this museum are not that special and location requires about 1 km of walk to the nearest U-bahn. We Suggest to visit... More

Really exceptional museum full of known and lesser known works - Titian, Rembrandt, Botticelli, Monet. The current El Siglo de Oro exhibit is beautiful and intense. There is a lot to see here, plan at least 3 hours if you really want to see and experience everything.

This museum is south of Tiergarten and next to the Decorative Arts Museum. I stopped in mainly to see the impressionist collection.

This is a huge museum with endless paintings by the masters. I was there during a special exhibit of Spanish masters (Velazquez, etc), but spent most of my time in the permanent collection. The works are amazing, but it is a huge museum so come prepared to walk and to see thousands of paintings. The audioguide is great and I... More

There are so many excellent art museums in Berlin, so you need to figure out what you want to see and how to budget your time. Needless to say, we did not really succeed at this. But, we did want to see some of the paintings from our favorite artists here, and, of course, along the way (until you find... More

For Rembrandt fans this is the wolrd's largest collection with over 16 of his paintings. Highlights include Caravaggio's Amor Cictorius (1602). Excellent audio guides in English are abailable included in the admission price.
