Alte Pinakothek, Munich Overview

Constructed by Leo von Klenze, the Alte Pinakothek is a temple of old master paintings originating from different countries.

Over 800 masterpieces by European artists bring to life the development of art from the Middle Ages to the Rococo period, here. This is Munich's primary repository of renowned artists, particularly German masters. Wittelsbach rulers were avid collectors over the years, reason which the collection has expanded manifolds. The Italians are represented by Boticelli, Rafael, Titian, the French collection includes works of Claude Lorrain and Francois Boucher, while works of the Spaniards El Greco and Murillo, adorn the walls as well. Altdorfer and DÙrer stand for old German art at some of its best form. And if you thought this was it, the Alte Pinakothek houses the largest collection of Rubens, along with Rembrandt and Da Vinci, needless to say the above names are not exhaustive! This building is most definitely one of Munich's must visit. The Alte Pinakothek is under renovation till 2018, so do check the website before visiting.
