The Alte Nationalgalerie (the Old National Gallery of Berlin) is undoubtedly the best place in Berlin to see a dazzling collection of neoclassical, romantic, Biedermeier, modernist and impressionist art. In addition to essential works by German artists, you will find paintings by Manet, Monet, Cézanne and others.
As soon as you arrive at the Alte Nationalgalerie you will realize how impressive the building is, even compared to the other wonders of this magnificent island of culture. Enter and let yourself be surprised by its simple yet sophisticated interior, highlighting the works of art without interfering too much.
Although the collection is huge, with its 1,800 paintings and 1,500 sculptures, the museum is easy to explore. Some of the most notable works include The Blind Samson by Lovis Corinth, The Iron Mill by Adolph von Menzel and the Impressionist paintings by Max Liebermann that prove that this nineteenth-century movement was not exclusive to Paris.
If you like 3D works of art more, go to the sculpture room on the first floor. Masterpieces such as Louis Sussmann-Hellborn’s Sleeping Beauty will make you wonder how someone can create a marble statue in such detail.
In a city that is famous for its World War II monuments and museums, the Alte Nationalgalerie is a grateful (and sometimes necessary) stop to contemplate the art of a lifetime.
