Fodor's Expert Review Neue Pinakothek

Maxvorstadt Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice
Museum, Neue Pinakothek, Munich, Germany

Another museum packed with masters, the fabulous Neue Pinakothek reopened in 1981 to house the royal collection of modern art left homeless and scattered after its original building was destroyed in the war. The exterior of the modern building mimics an older one with Italianate influences. The interior offers a magnificent environment for picture gazing, partly owing to the natural light flooding in from skylights. French impressionists—Monet, Degas, Manet—are all well represented, while the comprehensive collection also includes the great Romantic landscape painters Turner and Caspar David Friedrich, and other artists of the caliber of van Gogh and Cezanne. This is another must-see.
