Old National Gallery (Alte Nationalgalerie) Tours

One of the most impressive museums in Berlin is the Old National Gallery, or Alte Nationalgalerie in German. The museum was built between 1867 and 1876 and was designed to look like a temple. Though the building suffered damage during World War II, it was restored one section at a time in the decades following the war. 

In the Old National Gallery, you'll find art from the 19th century. Paintings and sculptures from many artists, such as Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir and Auguste Rodin, are on display here. This was actually the first museum in the world to purchase impressionist art when it acquired Édouard Manet’s In the Conservatory and Claude Monet’s View of Vétheuil in 1896. One of the most famous sculptures in the museum is Johann Gottfried Schadow’s Princesses Luise and Friederike located on the first floor.

Today, the Alte Nationalgalerie owns approximately 1,500 sculptures and 1,800 paintings—the largest collection of 19th-century paintings and sculptures in Europe. The art collection housed here is historical and is rarely expanded unless a piece compliments the existing collection.

Practical Info

The museum is located at Bodestraße 1-3 on Museum Island in Mitte. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It has extended hours on Thursday until 8 p.m., and it is closed on Monday.
