4 reviews of Alte Nationalgalerie

Romance at its best!

Germany is the birthplace of the Romantic movement, all the art has that touch of mystery, legend and medieval taste. One of the best places to see the highlights of this artistic movement is in the Alte Nationalgalerie. Besides being able to see famous paintings, such as "The Isle of the Dead" and the portrait of Böklin Hegel there are many other original painting by lesser known artists that will delight those who like the role, strategy games, mythology or just fantasy. Pictures of princesses being attacked by a dragon, crumbling dreams on a balcony in the light of the moon, a spooky castle, a mad Quixote.

Free permanent exhibition

Inside the church we find an interesting Friedrichswerdersche free, permanent exhibition of sculptures from the late sixteenth to mid-nineteenth century: the Museum of Schinkel. After the reconstruction of the interior of the church was decided that instead of turning it back into a religious space, it was the most appropriate place to show the best sculptures of the Nationalgalerie. Within the collection highlights are the famous sculpture of the two young princesses Federica and Louise, the future Queen of Prussia. Do not miss the famous sculpture of Winkelmann, one of the ideologues of classicism.

Important collection

The Alte Nationalgalerie has an important collection of French Impressionists. In my opinion these pictures, along with the German Romantics and the beautiful sculptures, are the most interesting. Cézanne, Renoir, Manet and the bohemian Toulouse-Lautrec. Paintings are moving, dynamic and well known. Thick strokes, lots of color and emotions concentrated on small canvases: worth stopping for.

UNESCO museum

The name means Altes Museum Old Museum. It's the few museums located on Museum Island in the Mitte district. Part of the other museums in the UNESCO world heritage listing. It was badly damaged by bombing in the second world, and renovated in 1966 to house the collections of the National Museum of Antiquity. The building you see was built around 1825 by the architect Schinkel. Neoclassical, and shows the art collections of the royal family of Prussia. It was then called the Royal Museum. Inspired by the Greek stoa, with columns and an outside deck. It has, as the neighboring cathedral, a dome similar to that of the Pantheon in Rome.
