The most or one of the most amazing art collections. German Expressionists, a fine Picasso, a Guginn a good Degas or two. A surpising early Monet. ALL are very good...the list of great works will astound you.

A good collection with examples by some leading European artists of 20th century. A room full of paintings by Caspar David Friedrich (C19th), and works by the German Expressionists founded in Dresden and Blaue Reiter group founded in Munich early in C20th. Otto Dix's triptych entitled 'War' shocks as much today as when it was painted after WWI. The sculpture... More

We went for the painting exhibition titled 'under Italian skies' which was good, they even had a Turner. The permanent exhibition of modern classically inspired sculpture is good as are the other painting exhibitions, some excellent examples of artists such as Otto Dix. Only 10 euros so good value for money.

Coming from London where we can barely scrape a Caspar David Friedrich, it is bliss to see so much German Romanticism on display. That, alongside some key works by Otto Dix, as well as Die Brucke (oh and the odd Picasso, Degas' Little Dancer etc.) and Gerhard Richter gives a great overview of German art. The sculpture hall is fantastic... More

The majority of the art on display left me cold. My aesthetic simply turns the other way when confronted by Neo-Classical, Neo-Realist, and German Romantic paintings. However, I did encounter some pleasant and unexpected surprises in the museum: some Assyrian sphinxes, Roman mosaics, and a very captivating modern sculpture--possibly 10 feet high--made of layers of plywoods glued together before being...

The Albertinum is an Art Museum built in the eighties of the nineteenth century upon Carl Adolf Canzler’s design to house the royal “Collection of antique and modern sculptures”. Its style is renaissance. It was damaged in February 1945 as a consequence of the Dresden bombardment by the allied air forces and again on the occasion of the heavy floods... More

Just right next to Dresden’s Academy of Fine Arts, the Albertinum is a gallery dedicated to the modern art. The New Masters Gallery (contrast to the Old Masters at the Zwinger) showcases Romantic era pieces to present day art pieces by contemporary artists.

Amazing collection of Alte and Neue Meister, from Caspar David Friedrich to Kirchner and Busch, Gauguin to Richter, very much worth seeing! Top overrofed patio with historical graffiti on the buildings walls, next to it a sculpture park. Inspiring building!

Great museum, with many "top artists" works. It is large, so take your time or choose the collection you most want to see. It has sculpture, drawings and other old works of art.
