The majority of the art on display left me cold. My aesthetic simply turns the other way when confronted by Neo-Classical, Neo-Realist, and German Romantic paintings. However, I did encounter some pleasant and unexpected surprises in the museum: some Assyrian sphinxes, Roman mosaics, and a very captivating modern sculpture--possibly 10 feet high--made of layers of plywoods glued together before being...

The Albertinum is an Art Museum built in the eighties of the nineteenth century upon Carl Adolf Canzler’s design to house the royal “Collection of antique and modern sculptures”. Its style is renaissance. It was damaged in February 1945 as a consequence of the Dresden bombardment by the allied air forces and again on the occasion of the heavy floods... More

Just right next to Dresden’s Academy of Fine Arts, the Albertinum is a gallery dedicated to the modern art. The New Masters Gallery (contrast to the Old Masters at the Zwinger) showcases Romantic era pieces to present day art pieces by contemporary artists.

Amazing collection of Alte and Neue Meister, from Caspar David Friedrich to Kirchner and Busch, Gauguin to Richter, very much worth seeing! Top overrofed patio with historical graffiti on the buildings walls, next to it a sculpture park. Inspiring building!

Great museum, with many "top artists" works. It is large, so take your time or choose the collection you most want to see. It has sculpture, drawings and other old works of art.

I walked out of this gallery in a strop the day before. I was hot, the museum staff were, it seemed to me, being officious, and I thought, "I don't need this!" But I did. I had to see the Neue Meisters on the 2nd floor, so I went back, and I behaved myself this time. It's about the bags.... More

Although maybe it's not one of the most known places in Dresden, it worths truly a visit of you are interested in painting of XIX, XX and XXI centuries... The building is also impressive in the new restauration. It owns important pieces by Friedrich, Die Brücke group, French impressionists and postimpressionists, and even such an important painter today as Richter...

When we drove to Dresden you can see this from the river and man does they look really good. When I say that it a beautiful piece of art. When you know that this building was bombed in World War II and it took 60 years to be rebuild. I would recommend this a most see places.

OK I'm not a fan of modern art, some of it is good, but most not (IMO) The whole top floor is circuit and 2/3rds of that circuit is modern and full of pretentious rubbish. Then something happens and you find yourself in a succession of rooms that are brilliant. Sensibly these should be over in the Zwinger where they... More
