Create an itinerary including Alte Pinakothek
Three museums, each highlighting a different period of art, are housed at Alte Pinakothek. The museums are within walking distance of each other, so you can easily explore all three on foot or by bicycle. First, stop by one of the oldest art galleries in the country. It houses a collection of at least 800 masterpieces from the Middle Ages to the end of the Rococo period. Look for works by Durer, Rubens, and da Vinci, among others. Next, visit the gallery that displays about 400 paintings and sculptures from the 19th century. Highlights include works by Monet, Degas, and Renoir. Finally, explore the gallery opened in 2002 to display a vast collection of modern art. Here, you'll find notable pieces by Picasso, Kandinsky, and Warhol. Purchase a day ticket for all three museums online. Put Alte Pinakothek at the forefront of your travel plans using our Munich online day trip planner.

  • Glorious collection where one could easily spend the whole afternoon. Only critique is that it's too good, overwhelming experience I would pace out through few days if I did it again so I could...

  • Very beautiful art museum. We enjoyed our experience. They are currently requiring a mask, vaccination record, AND negative covid Test. Because of these restrictions, it was pretty empty. We basically had the place to ourselves. We were able to purchase tickets at the door. With a 2€ deposit, we were able to use a locker in the coat room for a our bags and coats. The art was wonderful. I enjoyed some of the more fun paintings and the many by notable artists.
  • Beautiful and very informative. The audio guide was perfect English and really added to a lot of the artwork. Staff were great and kept good order around the paintings. Cafe looked nice but didn't stop for food.
