TOURING THE MUSEUMS
Map: Alte Pinakothek
▲Pinakothek der Moderne
Munich’s cluster of galleries brings you through 5,000 years of art history. Get a day pass and you could hop from museum to museum (all within a 10-minute walk of each other).
The Alte Pinakothek is the best of the bunch, with classic paintings by Da Vinci, Raphael, Dürer, Rubens, and Rembrandt. Continue with the Neue Pinakothek, starring Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Then browse your interests—20th-century classics like Picasso and Dalí (at the Pinakothek der Moderne), the birth of abstract art (at the Lenbachhaus), Egyptian tomb art (Egyptian Museum), Greek goddesses (Glypothek), or today’s cutting-edge art (Museum Brandhorst).
Planning Your Time: The average mortal should probably see no more than two or three museums in a single three-hour visit. I’d recommend the Alte Pinakothek and Neue Pinakothek (when open) to start. Art superheroes might be able to refresh in a classy museum café, then manage one or two more.
Combo-Ticket: A €12 pass covers the Pinakotheks, plus the Brandhorst and Schack Collection (more 19th-century German Romanticism) on a single day. A €29 combo-ticket covers five visits to any of those museums (no time restriction, shareable with travel companions).
