A fantastic collection that focuses on northern European art -- Germany and the Netherlands -- from the Middle Ages into the 17th century but has a fine collection of Italian, Spanish, and French art as well. I love to return to my favorites: Altdorfer's Battle of Issa, Duerer's "Four Apostles", Gossaert's Danae, Brueghel's Schlaraffenland, and appreciate the many other great works as well.
One criticism: compared with the situation in the New Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, which we visited a few days ago, the information about the paintings is very inadequate. Only if you read German -- fortunately I do -- will the books help you, IF they are available. And the audiotour necessarily excludes many works you may want to know more about. One small room with Dutch paintings has explanations in German and English. The rest of the collection needs to be adapted to in the same way. That said: this is a splendid collection, a "must see".
