The Pinakothek Museums

Three in one: welcome to the art capital of Munich

Not far from Munich’s main university in the popular district of Maxvorstadt rests a trio of three museums that together provide the vastest, most prestigious collection of art found within the Bavarian state. While the Neo-Rennaissance exterior of the nearly 200-year-old Alte Pinakothek is a sight in and of itself, residing within its walls is a rare collection of more than 800 early Italian, German and Dutch masterpieces, including works by Albrecht Dürer, Hieronymus Bosch and Rembrandt.

 

Meanwhile, the postmodern building housing the Neue Pinakothek exhibits paintings spanning European Classicism to the Art Noveau period, among them de Goyas, Renoirs, Monets and Van Gogh, whose famous Sunflowers has found a permanent place on its walls. The last to join the group, the Pinakothek der Moderne – unveiled as recently as 2002 – boasts 22,000 square meters of exhibition space, filled to the brim with Modernist masterpieces by the likes of Miró, Magritte, Kokoshka, Picasso as well as contemporary pieces by Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol and David Hockey.
