We couldn't visit this gallery (even though it was included in our online ticket), as the Bildergalerie is only opened from May onwards. This is somewhat strange, as this is an indoors attraction that could easily be opened year-round.

This gallery is a piece of art! They collected golden marble from old roman ruins to build this room. It was for the first time that the paintings have been organized by painter, a tactic now use all over the world. There are some masterpieces...More

I always enjoy going to art museums but this was the exception. It cost 6 euros plus an audio and pictorial guide to locate the paintings that were crammed up to the ceiling. Many of the scenes portrayed were rather weird with dark backgrounds. The...More

This charming art gallery was build to house additional paintings which would not go into Schloss Sannssouci itself. Signage from the exit of Schloss Sanssouci is clear and this building does not require an entry time slot; if you have a Kombiticket you can go...More

I actually really enjoyed visiting the gallery. The building interior was stunning and there are so many paintings dating from 17th century and I was just so amazed how they survived all these years. I'm not a fan of art but i really enjoyed it.

The scale is impressive and while the display format is not to modern tastes it does give one a feel for the impact it must have had when it was created.

Very ornate and well stocked art gallery. We found the audio guide a bit too detailed and decided to just look around. We had already visited several other properties here and were beginning to flag!

The Bildergalerie was my favorite surprise at Sanssouci. I hadn't read much about it before I visited, so when I arrived, I was blown away at the opulence of this enormous building built solely to house this impressive art collection (and I was thrilled to...More

The main hall of this building is, in a word, stunning. The ceiling, the floor, the paintings, the sculpture, are as beautiful as any palace in France or elsewhere in Germany. I have seen most of the palaces in Germany, as well as Versailles outside...More

The spacious and ornate interior is really impressive. We're not experts in the arts, but you get a guide to the paintings and I must admit there are some big names like Rubens or Caravaggio and interesting paintings to get a look at. If you...More
