Berlin’s Gemäldegalerie (Picture Gallery), also known as the Old Masters Museums is one of the world’s most impressive collections of European painting exhibiting an astonishing range of European art from the 13th to the 18th centuries from the great European masters including Botticelli, Dürer, Rembrandt, Rubens and Titian. For Rembrandt fans this is the world’s largest collection with over 16 of his paintings. In the daunting new Kulturforum near Potsdamer Platz over 3,000 works of art are exhibited chronologically in over 53 Halls through separate epochs, art genres and schools in the daunting new Kulturforum near Potsdamer Platz designed in 1997, encompassing 7,000 sq m of exhibition space. Over 900 masterpieces can be seen in the Main Gallery collection.

For orientation, the tour can start to the right of the entrance rotunda on the main floor with galleries I to 4 of German painting from the 13th to 16th centuries. Dutch Masters in the adjacent rooms include ‘The Netherlandish Proverbs’ by Peter Bruegel. The Rembrandts can be seen in gallery 10 and further on are Titian’s and Raphel’s Madonnas.

Gainsborough and Reynolds as well as Goya and Velasquez are divided between the Great Hall (Hauptgalerie) and the Study Gallery (Sudeingalerie). Highlights include Caravaggio’s Amor Victorius (1602) and Rubens’ Perseus Liberating Andromeda (1622).
Excellent audio guides in English are available included in the admission price.
