Updated: 2014-06-13 / (visitberlin.de)

The impressive museum on Berlin's Museum Island presents a collection of 19th century art from the period between the French Revolution and the First World War, from classicism to secessionism. The harmonious relationship between the collection and the museum building is exceptional. Designed under the auspices of Heinrich Strack according to plans by August Stüler, the gallery was built between 1867 and 1876,having become one of the most beautiful collections of paintings and sculptures from that century. A tour of the museum offers a unique insight into the art and architecture of the 19th century.

Highlights of the Sculpture Collection include the famous "Two Princesses", a statue depicting Princesses Luise and Friederike. Another one of the gallery's showpieces is Adolph von Menzel's famous work "The Balcony Room" from 1845. The exhibition also features other masterpieces by Adolph von Menzel, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir, Caspar David Friedrich, Paul Cézanne, Auguste Rodin, Anselm Feuerbach, Arnold Böcklin, Hans von Marées, Max Liebermann and Lovis Corinth.
