I think I enjoyed the gallery itself more than the paintings - (they are excellent paintings but I am more interested in contemporary art). Take the free audio guide, it makes it much more interesting. The gallery and layout is wonderful.

Though it does not have many “really famous” paintings, it has a nice and large collection. I strongly suggest using the free audio guide, because it is very informative, and there is not much written note for each painting. Another good thing is that you are allowed to take pictures of paintings (but without flash).

The best way to get there is to take bus 200 and get off at the Philharmonic stop. From there, it is only about 100m to the entrance. However, the sign at the entrance is Kulturforum Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, so a bit confusing.

The collection is one of the great European art collections. From a personal point of view, it has a Caravaggio, two Vermeers and a Giorgione so very happy. However, I much preferred the collection's previous siting in Dahlen. The Kulturforum location is a solid walk from the soulless Potsdamer Platz and the building itself is clinical. The hanging of the collection with German on the right and Italian on the left, both broadly chronological, with a huge void space between the two, just did not work for me.

A really wide range of European paintings from medieval to 18th century, mainly Dutch, Belgian, German, French and Italian in the earlier centuries. Not much Spanish, aparently because that collection was lost during World War 2. Some important British artists are also represented. Serious art lovers will recognise many important works, and you need to give this Gallery a full day. There is a restaurant/cafe to provide refreshment and a rest. It is not far from the U-Bahn station, but poorly signed.
