  • One of the world's leading collections of painting masterpieces from 13th to 18th centuries - including a phenomenal collection of works from German masters
  • The 72 rooms are arranged around an airy central hall, with indoor fountains designed by American minimalist installation artist Walter De Maria all in Berlin's Kulturforum
  • Renaissance bad boy Caravaggio's painting Amor Victorious shows love - as personified by an impish Eros - carelessly stomping all over the rest of human endeavors: music, science, war, and politics

The Gemäldegalerie's austere exterior belies the soaring expression of the works it contains. Masterpieces from artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Jan van Eyck, Raphael, Botticelli, Titian, Caravaggio and more, are arranged chronologically in the rooms inside.

You're in Kulturforum to get cultured. And if that's the case, you can't miss the Gemäldegalerie. The 1,500 works of art it contains were collected by the Prussian government, beginning in 1815.

The scope of the collection is absolutely staggering: whether you're into Italian Baroque, Dutch Golden Age, lesser-known influential German artists, or just beautiful canvasses, the Gemäldegalerie has got you covered.

The building's design makes a perfect setting to view these artworks. Wander from the central 'meditation hall' into as many of the 72 side rooms as you can handle, and take in the sheer weight of artistic accomplishment.

Brushstrokes and images from masters spanning countries and centuries from medieval German paintings to Italian Baroque masterpieces. Caravaggio's amor Victorious shows the winged childgod happily trodding all over human accomplishment. Because love conquers all, even the good stuff.

Excellent temporary exhibition currently. Building itself is very large & some rooms seem tired & run down. Ticket system worked well for us.

Ottima accoglienza, rapidità di accesso. Utilizzo molto razionale e completo di tutta la struttura per la validità giornaliera del biglietto d'ingresso. Le opere sono esposte in modo da godere della storia dell'arte e dell'artista. Sono stata veramente molto molto contenta della visita. Perfetta la mostra su Mantegna e Bellini.
