#6 of 55 in Museums in Munich
Three museums, each highlighting a different period of art, are housed at Alte Pinakothek. The museums are within walking distance of each other, so you can easily explore all three on foot or by bicycle. First, stop by one of the oldest art galleries in the country. It houses a collection of at least 800 masterpieces from the Middle Ages to the end of the Rococo period. Look for works by Durer, Rubens, and da Vinci, among others. Next, visit the gallery that displays about 400 paintings and sculptures from the 19th century. Highlights include works by Monet, Degas, and Renoir. Finally, explore the gallery opened in 2002 to display a vast collection of modern art. Here, you'll find notable pieces by Picasso, Kandinsky, and Warhol. Purchase a day ticket for all three museums online. Put Alte Pinakothek at the forefront of your travel plans using our Munich online day trip planner .

  • We have visited many art museums in various cities but this is an outstanding one to visit in Munich if you like an excellent and diverse collection. Like all museums, it is easy to get disoriented in...  more »
  • The exhibition is great and highly recommended. However, I had an experience that spoiled my enjoyment of art at the end: I had a paper bag in DINA 4 size with me and was thus left through the entrance and through all the rooms. The exhibition was teeming with supervisors. In the last (!) Room, said a supervisor, I should not go on with this bag, it is too long (!). I have to drop back to the dressing room and the bag. Especially since it was the last exhibition space, I then canceled the exhibition visit here and was very annoyed. Too bad, because the exhibition of Flemish and Italian artists is very worth seeing and well put together.

  • Great place if you like art. I suggest you start at the top floor and work your way down especially if you are pushed for time. There are lockers for bags so you'll need to have a 2 Euro coin handy. 7 euro for an adult and children free, audio guide is free.
  • My personal favourite when it comes to museums in Munich. Beautiful art, a wonderful cafe and a shop that you could spend a fortune in! Recommendable for everyone coming to Munich that likes old paintings (Baroque, Renaissance etc.). Also, just a little tip: on Sundays, entry is only 1€. (Though, then, of course, there will be more people around.)
