Create an itinerary including Alte Pinakothek
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.

  • This museum has a beautiful collection form early middle ages until 1900. Do'nt try to see it all in one visit. We visited the early middle ages and renaissance collection, which is outstanding.

  • Great stop on a rainy day, this is the best museum in Munich - just loaded with classical artwork, including towering paintings by Rubens. I mean, some of his paintings are huge! We had to double...

  • Beautifully museum. Beautiful art works. Could spend hours just walking around admiring the paintings. Would totally recommend. Also. The adjacent green space is very nice for sunny days. You can go there with friends.
  • Coming from a 3rd world country, I did not have so much chances of going into museums like this and having all the time that i need to view the art! The collection was amazing! I was mesmerized by some pieces! I spent almost 40 minutes watching Rubens "Fall of the damned" I will for sure go again here! Sundays the ticket is only 1 Euro, it is a sin not to visit and relax and feed your brain with these amazing pieces of art!
