At last i got to the gallery to see old masters.......oh what a joy....gallery dated compared to other galleries in Berlin. In the heart of the cultural centre so a full day can be had from 10am to 10pm cross the road to the Philharmonia and catch a world class concert,,make the effort.

Extensive collection, but heavy weighted towards religious imagery. There are far better galleries in Europe (e.g. National Gallery - London, The Louvre, The Prado, Oslo, Florence, Rome etc...), but worth a visit for the Dutch/Flemish collection alone.

The Gallery of Old Masters or Gemäldegalerie has an impressive collection of European paintings from the 13th to the 18th centuries, featuring Botticelli, Dürer, Rembrandt, Rubens and Titian. Apparently it is the world’s largest collection of Rembrandt paintings with at least 16 of his paintings on display. Due to the provenance of the paintings, there is a particular focus on... More

While Museum Island can boast of having most of the great museums in Berlin, the Gemaldegalerie is the one that got away. This art museum of the former West Germany remains as the place for great art.

Spacy modern, large national gallery with all the highlights of the classics - from medieval days to plenty of Rembrandt, 2 Vermeers and the best Botticellis. Usually much less crowded then the touristy museum locations in Mitte. Good audioguide, is incl. in the price, use it also to find your way around ! You will spend more time there then... More

Hard to find but unmissable if you are interested in the history of European art from Giotto to the changing current exhibitions.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
