The gallery is under renovation but the most important pieces are on display. Plan on spending 1hr to 1.5 hr here. There is an elevator if you are unable to climb stairs. Get the Museum Card if you plan on visiting numerous museums over 2 days

The collection is not that large but you can see master pieces. A long afternoon is required. The building is nice as well. I recommend to take the audio guide to profit from the explanations

Fantastic collection which fortunately was put away during the World War Two and therefore preserved for posterity.

Because this part of Germany was not easy for Westerners to visit the museums hold special treats. When Dresden was rebuilt good planning meant that access to the building was provided for those who find stairs difficult. The shop has very interesting choices including historical material on 13 Feb 1945.

Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister is a treasury of the world masterpieces. I was delighted watching Rembrandt's, Raphael's, Giorgione's, Dürer's works of art. And of course Sistine Madonna is a visiting card of Old Masters Gallery.

Opening hours 10-6pm daily. Entry is €10 and includes access to all three museums at Zwinger Palace. You can see works by Spanish, French and German Old Masters as well... More

We had to rush through this museum. But even with rushing you can really see the beauty. I would have loved to linger and enjoy but at least I saw.

Went there as the main attraction for Zwinger and love the display and the rooms themselves. Although this museum is not as great as El Prado in Madrid it is still supreme in its own way. The number of visitors in winter was less so we manage to get up close and personal to admire the paintings. Must go and... More

The Gemaldegalerie Alte Meister is a beautiful museum in Dresden with a good collection of 16th and 17th age art, among others Vermeer's girl reading a letter in the window. There is also a large collection of religious art.
