Create an itinerary including Germanisches Nationalmuseum
Germanisches Nationalmuseum-- Germany's largest museum of cultural history--houses an enormous collection of German cultural and art objects from prehistoric times to present day. Some highlights include the Cloth of St. Gereon, the oldest European tapestry still existing, plus portraits and paintings by Albrecht Dürer and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Most displays contain text only in German, and the layout can be a little confusing. Regardless, the quantity and quality of the collection makes this worth a stop.

  • This was my second visit to this amazing museum. Instead of exploring new areas I'd missed before, I decided to return to the religious art/artifacts sections. These made the strongest impressions...

  • You'll need at least 2 days to cover in-depth...there are plenty of English transcriptions, if you get the audio guide (3€) it gives further explanations but not really required. My favourite was the treasure trove of musical instuments! Museum staff were friendly and helpful.
  • I love this museum! It has a lovely footprint and you can spend a lovely day. The cafe is nice as well. All the staff is friendly and helpful.
