  • Marvel at a building that could only be described as the beautiful lovechild of a church, a temple and a theater
  • Check out mesmerizing paintings and sculptures like Adolph von Menzel’s The Iron Rolling Mill and Louis Sussmann-Hellborn’s Sleeping Beauty
  • Skip the line and dive deep into German Impressionism by perusing Max Liebermann's fascinating works

The Alte Nationalgalerie (or Old National Gallery, in German) is the place to go in Berlin for a dazzling collection of Neoclassical, Romantic, Biedermeier, Modernist and Impressionist art. As well as unmissable works by German artists, here you’ll find paintings by Manet, Monet, Cézanne and others.

The very first thing you’ll notice upon arriving at the Alte Nationalgalerie is how impressive the building is, even when compared with the other wonders on this magnificent island of culture. Walk in and you’ll be amazed by the simple yet classy interior, which highlights the artworks without getting in their way.

Although the collection is massive, featuring 1,800 paintings and 1,500 sculptures, this is an easy museum to explore. Highlights include Lovis Corinth’s The Blind Samson, Adolph von Menzel’s The Iron Rolling Mill, and Max Liebermann’s Impressionist paintings, proving that this 19th-century movement wasn’t exclusive to Paris.

If you prefer your art in 3D, check out the sculpture hall on the first floor. Masterpieces like Louis Sussmann-Hellborn’s Sleeping Beauty will make you wonder how on earth someone can apply that much detail to a block of marble.

In a city famous for its World War II monuments and museums, the Alte Nationalgalerie is a welcome (and sometimes needed) stop for some good old art.

Ich hab kurzfristig ein Ticket online bestellt und bezahlt, Ticket wurde ans Handy gesandt. 1Stunde später war ich in der Alten Nationalgalerie. Es lief alles reibungslos.
Ich war begeistert!

Kartenkauf war problemlos, Eintrittskarten als Codes sofort auf die Mailadresse gesendet.
Das Anstehen erspart man sich nicht unbedingt, da nur eine bestimmte Anzahl von Menschen in die Nationalgalerie eingelassen werden. Jedenfalls hatten wir den Eindruck.
Angestanden wurde so 15 Uhr, wir konnten ohne Anstehen ca. 12 Uhr rein.
