“As one of the most important art galleries in the world, the Alte Pinakothek on Königsplatz shows European painting from the 14th to the 18th century. More than 700 paintings are exhibited in 19 halls and 47 cabinets. Since 1836, art enthusiasts have been walking through the impressive two-storey rooms created by the architect Leo von Klenze. The treasures of the Alte Pinakothek are kept by the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen. Together with the Neue Pinakothek, the Pinakothek der Moderne and the Museum Brandhorst, the Alte Pinakothek forms the inner core of the Munich art area.”

Art Museum
“Visitors pass through the Neue Pinakothek like in a labyrinth. The tour follows a horizontal eight and ends at the starting point. In between there is an exciting overview of the epochs of European art from the Enlightenment to the beginning of Modernism. Van Gogh's Sunflowers, Spitzwegs Armer Poet, Piloty's 35 square metre triumphal procession of Germanicus and King Ludwig I in full Ornat are just a few examples of the nearly 400 works of European art from the late 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. (Attention: the Neue Pinakothek will be closed from 31.12.2018 for structural reasons)”
