The 1st and 2nd floor of the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister (Old Masters Gallery) are currently closed for refurbishment. Until 5 January 2020 we are presenting a exhibition of 55 paintings on the ground floor of the Semper Building.

Guided tours

Our guided tours (except Mondays) offer deeper insights into our collections from different perspectives, point out interesting connections and help to discover well-known works of art in a new light. For example, you can visit the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister to follow Canaletto’s footsteps or to find out about "Women in Art".  In the Skulpturensammlung you can extend your knowledge with stories about gods and heroes and learn more about how classical sculpture was understood in the Baroque period. Our guides will gladly help you to explore the vast selections of topics in our museums. Tours in Russian are held at 1 pm on Saturdays.
