The museum building itself is an attraction with its weird appearance and vast internal spaces. The collection is also exciting; especially the the saxony art circle throughout centuries can be seen in an well organised order. I am very much interested in 19th century northern...More

I was only tagging along to my husband's business trip to Leipzig, so this lovely place was never on my travel radar until now. We were lucky enough to stay in the city centre; within 10mins walking distance to the central train station and the...More

Great museum though a red exhibition was terrible. Modern Art exhibitions have not yet peaked. Maybe they will with the new director from Vienna.

A bit mixed up about the art, but this is so personal. We went in more because of the architecture and this was worthwhile.

The architecture is monumental and tends to overpower the visitor. Still, the collection is a very good one, with special strengths in 17th Dutch art, 19th century German Romanticism, and 20th century art. Among my favourites are works by Frans Hals, Caspar David Friedrich, Arnold...More

Strongest on Romantic and 19th century German art. Caspar David Friedrich and his ilk have a strong presence. The final version of Bocklin's Isle of the Dead is located in this museum. Louis Corinth's Deposition is probably the showstopper. Art prior to this is represented...More

Don't miss Rogier van def Weyden's touching picture of 'The Visitation' as the pregnant Mary and Elizabeth gently pat each other's wombs. Bu there's lots more than this great late medieval picture. Look out for lovely examples of landscapes from the French 19th Century Barbizon...More

This gallery is very well lit and has a very good collection of European art. It has a fine collection of works by Cranach and Schongauer from the Renaissance period. It also has important works by the German Romantic painters such as Tischbein and C.D....More
