The Alte Nationalgalerie (English: Old National Gallery) is a listed building on the Museum Island in the historic centre of Berlin and part of the UNESCO World Heritage. It was built from 1862 to 1876 by order of King Frederick William IV of Prussia according to plans by Friedrich August Stüler and Johann Heinrich Strack in Neoclassical and Renaissance Revival styles. The building's outside stair features a memorial to Frederick William IV. Currently, the Alte Nationalgalerie is home to paintings and sculptures of the 19th century and hosts a variety of 21st century tourist buses daily.

A wonderful experience every time. The area around is beautiful for itself and the building is admirable, inside the National Gallery you have an uplifting atmosphere and culture. Beautiful exhibitions are carefully chosen and presented. There is a wardrobe for storing you belongings and the option to rent headphones with explanations about many of the art pieces (recommended). The place is air conditioned. There's a cute gift shop with great postcards.
I had so much fun walking around this museum. I spent the better part of a day, just looking at everything. All the art work is amazing. If you want to see several museums over a couple of days, I highly recommend the $50 Euro Annual Classic Membership.
Nice place. Actually I was at the yard, after closing hours. But I liked the place very much. So quiet and relaxing.
The summer 2018 exhibition Wanderlust included many pretty pictures of people walking in nature. The museum has a fine collection of Caspar David Friedrich paintings.
They are currently having an exhibition 'Wanderlust' (until 16th Sept. 2018) where you can see Caspar David Friedrich's Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog, Renoir, Coubert, Gauguin... Worth to visit. Very crowded on the weekend (I waited for more half an hour just to get inside...)
