Owner description: This huge art museum specializes in European painting. The historic building itself is worth the price of admission.

Some important and easily recognizable pieces (like Wanderer above the Sea of Fog by David Caspar Friedrich). Very interesting video installations. Otherwise a little repetitive and the rooms don't flow well.

Even with a floor plan it is easy to get lost in this mueaum as it appears to have more than one entrance and book shop. Great collection of 19th & 20th Century art including Munch, Picasso and Nolde together with a good collection of German and French immpressionoists. Some large Alma Tademas and Pre- Raphealite pictures as well. At Euro 12 per head it is getting expensive - pensioners are half price on Fridays!

It is a vast gallery with lots of famous artists from Rembrandt to V.Kandinski. Very enjoyable time spent there and I practicable had the building to myself.

I booked the English audio for the tour of the permanent exhibit. I was very impressed with the quality of paintings and artists there, as well as the way they were presented. This was a very enjoyable afternoon, and I highly recommend it.

Saw the Giacometti exhibition which was showing and took a look at the permanent collection. Some nice pieces but not a huge amount to look at although I was solely there for the contemporary collection housed in a very nice new wing. Original wing houses the more Germanic European pieces which have few nice pieces.
