It’s worth visiting this museum for the building alone. Its spaces and finishes are just superb. We enjoyed the collection of German painters, especially the Max Klinger exhibits and learned quite a bit about other German artists as well. The traditional European collections are interesting...More

This museum of Fine Arts was built in 2004, at a massive cost of €74.5 million, and is a rectangular, almost cube like glass structure. It is a controversial building for the locals in Leipzig with very polarised opinions - you love it or hate...More

This museum has a ton of different styles of art. I spent around two hours inside but I could have stayed longer. I believe there are some exhibits that are changed periodically so there is always more to see.

Very interesting museum in the middle of town. The open, light architecture is worth some investigation too.

The museum building itself is an attraction with its weird appearance and vast internal spaces. The collection is also exciting; especially the the saxony art circle throughout centuries can be seen in an well organised order. I am very much interested in 19th century northern...More
