Lonely Planet review
The Greek temple-style Old National Gallery, open since 1876, is a three-storey showcase of top-notch, 19th-century European art. To get a sense of the virtuosity of the period, study the canvasses glorifying Prussia - epics by Franz Krüger and Adolf Menzel and the moody landscapes by Romantic heart-throb, Caspar David Friedrich. There’s also a sprinkling of French impressionists in case you’re keen on seeing yet another version of Monet’s Waterlilies and plenty of sculpture by Rauch and Schadow, possibly to tease you into visiting the much larger collection in the nearby Friedrichswerdersche Kirche .
