Alte Nationalgalerie - The Old National Gallery
A temple to 19th century art.
The Alte Nationalgalerie ("Old National Gallery") was built between 1867 and 1876 based on the designs by Friedrich August Stüler. His ambition was to create a "temple dedicated to science" - at the time it was used as a display space for contemporary artwork. The edifice was restored between 1997 and 2001 and now is home to a collection of 19th century paintings and sculptures.
You can see works there by artists such as Adolph von Menzel, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Paul Cézanne, Auguste Rodin, Anselm Feuerbach, Arnold Böcklin, Max Liebermann, and Lovis Corinth.
