The city of Munich is particularly impressive with its collection of paintings in the Pinakotheken. In the Alte Pinakothek, you can experience European art from the 14th to 18th centuries. Numerous pictures by Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Dürer, Leonard da Vinci, Raffael, Rembrandt and Titian take you back to these artistic epochs. The collection of the Neue Pinakothek is dedicated to the art of the 19th century. Works by Romantic painters such as Caspar David Friedrich and Carl Blechen as well as Impressionist paintings by Max Liebermann, Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet are on display. Art from the 20th and 21st centuries can be found in the Pinakothek der Moderne. Works from classical modernism to the present are exhibited.


Dresden can boast a rich treasure trove of Baroque and Old Masters art.
