Study mainly German and Italian paintings from the 13th to the 16th, and the Dutch paintings from the 15th to the 17th century. Admire the Gemäldegalerie's interesting new building in an austere Prussian style, and stroll through the simple structure, with its rooms grouped around a bright foyer.

I don't prefer audio or in-person guides, so I didn't use those options. But this is a magnificent museum presenting the old masters, especially Dutch & Flemish, and I loved every minute of it, even though it's a bit challenging to find one's way through the room numbers. Also, the museum was transparent about the fact that some rooms were closed for renovations of lighting, etc., which was a very helpful warning for me, and they also made sure to have available for viewing the main highlights of collections from closed rooms. Loved the experience (which I took in right after using my timed tickets to the Neue Nationalgalerie, a museum that could hardly be more different, yet is also stupendous). Go!

We really enjoyed the hop on hop off tour! All the important stops were there and it is a good way to explore Berlin in one day. We got off at the stops that were interesting for us and then took the next bus. We saw the other things from the bus and everything was explained very well and the audio guide speakers didn't make it boring either. We can only recommend the tour. We were out all day and fell asleep at night

Bus topper! Great way to see a lot of Berlin. Only my advice is, book with an 'agent'. They are everywhere in Berlin. Then you know for sure that you are getting on the right bus. Especially if you want audio in Dutch. Not all buses have NL audio and the info given via website is not correct!

Excellent shows you the highlights of Berlin and at each stop you can get off to take photos or see more in depth and then wait for the next bus to pick you up. Super good. Recommended.

Easy-just walked in. But had to put my purse in a locker first. 3 Euros!
