1. Museum Barberini
The state capital of Potsdam is just half an hour from Berlin - and with its parks, lakes and UNESCO World Heritage sites, it offers a unique oasis just outside the metropolis. Discover the historic city center, explore the fascinating palaces and gardens, and experience the most important collection of Impressionist art in Germany at the Museum Barberini: more than 100 works by 20 artists, including Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Gustave Caillebotte and Paul Signac, take visitors through the history of French Impressionism in the Hasso Plattner Collection. With 38 paintings by Claude Monet, nowhere in Europe outside of Paris are more works by this artist gathered in one place. Potsdam is thus one of the world's most important centers of Impressionist landscape painting.
