Gemäldegalerie, Berlin

Explore the Gemäldegalerie on your university or college trip to Berlin.

The Gemäldegalerie boasts one of the finest and expansive collections of European art from the 13th to 18th century. 

After the collection was initially founded in 1830, it was systematically built up and perfected. Now, it showcases a wide range of masterpieces from every age of art history; from Van Eyck, Bruegel and Dürer, to Raphael, Tizian, Caravaggio, Rubens, Vermeer and Rembrandt.

The simple façade design of the building is reminiscent of Karl Friedrich Schinkel's Altes Museum, and the collection rooms are also classically proportioned. From the grand foyer, you can always return to the exhibition rooms and take the walk through the vast collection of works.
