Not the largest collection available but a very cool one. There are several themes for different origins of paintings. They even have a few Rembrandt, a Vermeer en Dou!

... don't forget to grab a map before entering the museum. We didn't and couldn't get any map later on. The layout in the old building leads to the rooms getting crowded. Bring some time to let the bus tours pass.

Amazing place for someone who loves art. I thought I was dreaming when I saw the Cranachs...younger and elder. And it doesn't stop there. They have a first class selection.

You have good taste. The girl is reading, definitly, she is holding the letter with two hands and the letter is probably from her lover.

Добрый день! 20 августа впервые планируем посетить Картинную галерею Старых мастеров. При подготовке к туру по этому пункту нашей программы возникли вопросы: 1. Судя по информации в Интернете, похоже, что в данное время коллекция располагается в левом крыле строения «Земпербау» (от входа со стороны Театральной площади). Так ли это на самом деле? 2. Действует ли скидка на входные билеты с €10 до €7.5 для иностранных пенсионеров? Буду весьма признателен за отклик на этот мой SOS! С уважением, Вячеслав Guten Tag! 20. August zum ersten Mal die Planung der Art Gallery of Old Masters zu besuchen. In Vorbereitung auf die Tour an diesem Punkt unseres Programms gibt es eine Frage: 1. Auf der Grundlage der Informationen über das Internet, so scheint es zu diesem Zeitpunkt, dass die Sammlung im linken Flügel 'Zemperbau "Gebäude (Eingang von der Seite des Theaterplatz ) befindet. Ist es wirklich? 2. Ist der Rabatt auf Tickets von € 10 bis € 7.5 für ausländische Rentner gültig ist? Ich würde sehr eine Antwort auf diese meine SOS schätzen! Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Wjatscheslaw

Коллекция там и не передвигается, возможно со временем она расширится и на соседнее крыло. Для иностранных пенсионеров (не ЕС) скидок обычно нет, уточните информацию на сайте.
