Picture Gallery


The Picture Gallery (Gemäldegalerie), designed by Hilmer & Sattler, was opened in 1998 and owes its architectural appeal to the expressionist glass roof above the entrance area and a huge hall with three naves. Wrapped around this hall is a double row of 53 exhibition rooms lit evenly from above. This museum shows one of the world’s most important collections of European painting from the 13th to the 18th century.
