This is a great art gallery that whilst providing examples of from some of the more renowned classical artists, French, Italian, Dutch etc provides a wonderful selection of the less known (to me at least) German artists. There are also some fine examples of sculptures marble/bronze that provides good contrast to the hanging displays. As reported by one TA reviewer... More

I think I made it to all the museums on Museum Island in Berlin. This museum was probably my favorite. It depends on what you like, but I thought the art was presented well. It has the impressionists and Romantic pieces. A handful of scultutes that are beautiful as well. It's a nice quite reprieve from the craziness. Spend a... More

I came especially to see Caspar David Friedrich's paintings and was very pleased: they are so beautiful in reality. Very big and beautiful collection of other romantic painters and some beautiful impressionist works. I'll be back!

Most visitors will be mostly interested in the French impressionists (Manet, Renoir...), but this museum offers a beautiful overview of 19th century German art (realism, impressionism, romanticism, landscape, ...). I particularly liked the Symbolists (Arnold Böcklin and his dreamy Isle of the Dead", Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Caspar David Friedrich...).

This seems to be one of the less popular of the Museum Island options and conveniently was not lined up during my visit. The interior of the building is impressive in itself and would be gorgeous without the art--they have a wonderful collection of German realist paintings as well as realist and French Impressionist art (Manet, Monet, Renoir). 2.5 hours...

Visited Alte Nationalgalerie on Museum Island primarily to see the impressionist pieces which we enjoyed and spent a couple of hours in the museum - it was a very hot day so also good to rest in a shady spot in the beautiful grounds.

I only managed to visit one Art Gallery while on a short visit to Berlin. This was the Old National Gallery and luckily it was this one. Didn't have much time so had to whiz around a bit. Wonderful set of Impressionists.

Red hot in there. I have a heart problem. Went up the stairs, roasted and slightly distressed. Took my coat off to be told, in German, that I wasn't allowed to take my coat off and I had to wear it! . Left immediately. Bonkers.

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
