I have spent 2 hours in the gallery and would stay here even more if they weren't closing it because of the end of opening hours. Beautiful and less known artworks from known names such as Botticelli, Rembrandt, Dürer, etc. It is very inspiring. Highly recommended!

The collection here is incredible. There may be no DaVinci’s or Michelangelo’s but there’s ever other master you’d ever want to view. Every item is almost extraordinary and worth looking at …the curator is to be congratulated. Best of all no crowds. We went after it had been closed for 2 days expecting the bank up of visitors to lead... More

We are a couple who loves to learn about history and artists but this museum was an awful experience despite the important works. We bought a ticket and were not told that it included a free audio guide so we didn't take one, expecting there would be some descriptions and context given, as usual in museums. However, there was absolutely... More

This museum has many marvelous and very rare paintings, and a very wide selection. All are very well presented and lighted, and the museum is just the right size, with no second rank paintings displayed, so every painting is excellent

The collection of paintings spans from the 13th to the 19th Centuries. I could not believe that on a Sunday, there were so few people. There are lockers to store your personal belongings. The Cafe was neither good nor bad.

I have large expectations about this museums and I am happy to inform that they were surpassed. The collection is astonishingly good in terms of quality and quantity. I recommend strongly to use the audio guide. The recordings are usually below two minutes and it gives you enough details to appreciate better the Art work you have in front of... More

If you love art from Giotto to Gainsborough this is your kind of place. We were lucky to visit on May 1 which gave us holiday hours and almost had the place to ourselves. Excellent audio guide included. We spent 5 hours and only left because we were exhausted. Best for us Caravaggio, VanEyck, Bruegel, and Bosch. Nice cafeteria but... More

Very good place, but be ready to find the gem you are looking for through the numerous halls. That's not a problem if you have got plenty of time, but if not - get your guide ready.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighborhood Profile
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.
