We hadn't prioritized this for our trip to Munich, though now I can't wait to go back. There is a terrific collection here, including Dutch masters, a huge assortment of Rubens, and so much more. The gallery itself is very well-designed and never feels crowded....More

Beautiful collection of paintings from middel ages to 19th c. Absolutely a must when visiting Munich, although there is a bit of overkill of Rubens.

Small but amazing collection of European Art by many famous masters, including, DaVinci, Raphael, Boticelli, and many more. Could have spent a lot more time here than we allotted.

At only €1 to enter on Sundays, this was a no brainier to do. The draw was obviously the Vemeers painting on loan from the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam - “Woman in blue reading a letter”. This was a stand out piece compared to many other...More

This is a museum of masterpieces: Durer, Rubens, Rembrandt, Da Vinci and loads more. Plan on spending a great day here. View until you've developed 'museum itis', then stop for a coffee and cake at the little cafe.

I would highly recommend going to this museum as it is large and lots of great art. Make sure you follow the numbers as it is easy to miss rooms.

This is one of Germany's three gate galleries, with the Gemaldegallerien Berlin and Dresden. Some marvellous masterpieces here, unmissable.

Even though half the gallery is closed for renovations, we spent over four hours in the half that was open, totally entranced by the wonderful paintings and the beautiful building. The cost of two euros each for seniors must be the best value in Munich....More

We arrived on a weekday just at the 10 am opening and there was no line. Due perhaps to the renovations and the smaller collection on view, there did not seem to be very many people, even by noon.

For an art geek and somewhat obsessive must-see-everything type person, how much time should I allot to Alte Pinakothek in its current state of renovation? As a ball park, if I were to view/listen to everything on an audio-guide, how long would it take? Also, a general sense of scale would be great. Is it like the Louvre, which using my approach takes at least 3 days to see the whole thing satisfactorily (one day per wing) or is it more like the Art Institute of Chicago, which I was able to see pretty much everything in 1.5 days? Other museums that can be used as a point of reference are the Met in NY, the National Gallery in Washington D.C., the National Gallery in London, the Uffizi in Florence or Museo el Prado in Madrid. (I am trying to list the larger, encyclopedic museums since that is what I understand Alte Pinakothek to be). Currently, I have a day allotted to Alte Pinakothek, a day allotted to Neue Pinakothek, and a half day allotted to Pinakothek der moderne (purely based on my lesser interest in contemporary art). Again, I am not interested in how much time it would take a typical traveler to see the museum - I see 3 hours cited as a good amount of time, but I would spend 3 hours in small museums like the Frick in NY, so I can't imagine 3 hours would be anywhere enough time for me to see Alte Pinakothek. I will be visiting in September 2016. I am finding the museum's website unhelpful in terms of pinpointing what is closed and what is open or even a sense of proportion (half closed? 1/3 closed?) Any input would be greatly appreciated!
