About the Museum
The Gemäldegalerie, opened in 1830, is a leading art museum in Berlin devoted to the display of European painting from the 13th to the 18th centuries. Its permanent collection includes pieces by Rubens, Titian and Pieter Bruegel the Elder, along with one of the world’s largest collection of works by Rembrandt. The museum makes up part of the Staatlich Museen zu Berlin group, and is housed within the Kulturforum, a nucleus of museums built in the 1950s and 1960s. With 72 galleries spread over nearly two kilometers, the Gemäldegalerie is currently able to display around 1000 works at one time.
