This is one of the best art museums that I have ever visited. I was amazed at the quality and quantity of the collection. The museum is huge and I wished that I had rented the audio guide. It would have made my visit more organized; still I enjoyed my wander through the museum. Be sure to make enough time... More

Nice museum, good audio guide. A lot of nice pieces by big artists. Went for the Hieronymus exposition, but I was a bit disappointed by the amount of pieces shown.

If you want to contemplate Botticellis and Renaissance pieces, it´s a nice place to visit on a rainy day

The museum is great - I mean the works of art that are there. It is near Postdame platz. You can see works by Raphael, Boticelli, Rubens and other old masters. If you have Museum Pass the entry is free. Otherwise, price is 10 euros.

This was an amazing museum. It was huge, and all exhibition rooms were well lit with daylight coming therough the roof windows. And the names of the great artists (van Meer, Botticelli etc) are in legions. We did not see all, but stopped in fron of some of them and had long conversations about what story the painting told us.... More

All the major schools of European art are represented. It was interesting to see Botticelli's Venus, a subset of the Birth of Venus that hangs in the Uffizi in Florence. The advantage here is that one can get a good look as there are not so many visitors. Similarly for some Venetian scenes by Canaletto. There was a free headset... More

A museum full of eye-popping paintings by the masters. You'll find the architecture of the museum surprisingly modern. The number of paintings on display is overwhelming. Be prepared to spend a significant amount of time during your visit.

This is a great museum with an impressive collection of old masters including Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Dürer, Rubens and many more. There is a lot of religious art. The audio guides are very good, but this museum visit would probably be too heavy for small children. The only negative for me here was the 12 euro salad at the adjoining cafeteria.... More

If you want paintings by some of the greatest of the Old Masters, this is the place. Rembrandt, Rbens, Titian and Caravaggio to name but a few.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
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.
