Amazing art collection. Could easily spend hours here. Especially if you're a fan of flemish art or de Vinci.

Only partly opened due to renovation work. But still worth the visit, masterpieces and surprisingly not too many visitors. It worth to go in Munich only for this visit

We went to the Alte Pinakothek on Sunday to take advantage of the 1€/person admission. The museum features many of the masters (particularly of Northern European origin) and has interpretive displays in English and German. A great collection. We arrived early and had no problem...More

The Alte Pinakothek has a wonderful collection of "Alte Meister" from Albrecht Duerer to Rembrandt and Rubens.

There are renovations of some collections at the present time. However the collection of the paintings by Rubins is magnificent. Seniors pay a reduced entry fee and there is a lift for those with mobility problems who wish to reach the upper floors.

I last visited here in 1971, and things are pretty much unchanged. My biggest disappointment was that the rooms with the Druer collection were closed, that was my main reason for going. The rest of the collection is excellent with many great pieces of art....More

One of the things we do to have a educational break is to visit a museum like this, very entertaining and delightful to see.

This is a fantastic museum with a collection to rival the best European museums, especially known for its abundant Rembrandt and Rubens painting. But for me, the top one are works by Dürer - a self-portrait and Four apostles, Breugel the Older's s "The lanfdof...More

We arrived on a weekday just at the 10 am opening and there was no line. Due perhaps to the renovations and the smaller collection on view, there did not seem to be very many people, even by noon.

Sorry I have not replied sooner. I have only just opened your message. I hope you got your query resolved and enjoyed your visit if you have been.

For an art geek and somewhat obsessive must-see-everything type person, how much time should I allot to Alte Pinakothek in its current state of renovation? As a ball park, if I were to view/listen to everything on an audio-guide, how long would it take? Also, a general sense of scale would be great. Is it like the Louvre, which using my approach takes at least 3 days to see the whole thing satisfactorily (one day per wing) or is it more like the Art Institute of Chicago, which I was able to see pretty much everything in 1.5 days? Other museums that can be used as a point of reference are the Met in NY, the National Gallery in Washington D.C., the National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Florence or Museo el Prado in Madrid. (I am trying to list the larger, encyclopedic museums since that is what I understand Alte Pinakothek to be). Currently, I have a day allotted to Alte Pinakothek, a day allotted to Neue Pinakothek, and a half day allotted to Pinakothek der moderne (purely based on my lesser interest in contemporary art). Again, I am not interested in how much time it would take a typical traveler to see the museum - I see 3 hours cited as a good amount of time, but I would spend 3 hours in small museums like the Frick in NY, so I can't imagine 3 hours would be anywhere enough time for me to see Alte Pinakothek. I will be visiting in September 2016. I am finding the museum's website unhelpful in terms of pinpointing what is closed and what is open or even a sense of proportion (half closed? 1/3 closed?) Any input would be greatly appreciated!
