More Museums

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).

About the Author

Since 1973, Rick Steves has spent about four months a year exploring Europe. His mission: to empower Americans to have European trips that are fun, affordable, and culturally broadening. Rick produces a best-selling guidebook series, a public television series, and a public radio show, and organizes small-group tours that take over 30,000 travelers to Europe annually.  He does all of this with the help of more than 100 well-traveled staff members at Rick Steves’ Europe in Edmonds, WA (near Seattle). When not on the road, Rick is active in his church and with advocacy groups focused on economic and social justice, drug policy reform, and ending hunger. To recharge, Rick plays piano, relaxes at his family cabin in the Cascade Mountains, and spends time with his son Andy and daughter Jackie.
