Expert review of Neue Nationalgalerie

Modern art in a classic Bauhaus space.

Designed by Mies van der Rohe, the Neue Nationalgalerie is a minimalist steel and glass rectangle near Potsdamer Platz. The museum opened in 1968 and covers nearly 5,000 square metres of space. Exhibits range from classical modern to 1960s and 1970s art. Various styles are covered, including cubism, expressionism, surrealism and artists such as Pablo Picasso, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, Yves Klein, Lucio Fontana, Barnett Newman and Morris Louis. The window-filled top level is often used for special exhibits with large sculptures and paintings, while the lower level has space for shows and includes a café, shop and the museum’s permanent collection.

Price advice: 

Admission is 10 euros and 5 euros for reductions.
