Beautifully designed gallery with the best masterpieces. A free audio guide is provided. The only disadvantage of the place is that it's very big, you need a lot of time to appreciate all of the artworks and it's overwhelming.

Rates right up there with the Louvre in Paris or Pinakothek in Munich. Especially rich in Old Masters, 13th to 18th centuries. Caravaggio, Canaletto, Dürer - you find them all here.

This museum was an absolute surprise! I've been living in Berlin for about a half a year and had heard nothing about it- which makes no sense at all as I'd consider this one of the most significant permanent collections of Western medieval and early...More

The construction works around the museum have obviously been going on for some time. But nobody evidently has a single brain cell to think to change the signs to indicate that the entrance has changed. Follow the huge banner on the side of the building,...More

Having studied art history during a semester abroad in 1983 in Germany, this was a must see for my wife and me. Altdorfer, Luis Cranach, Pieter Bruegel, Rembrandt, Durer, Holbein, and Reubens are all there. The paintings are in a very modern building with great...More

One of the best collections of German and Western European Renaissance art, you can go in many directions and find paintings that are the best examples of their era. The Durers are second only to the ones found in Munich, which are second to no...More

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
