Rembrandt, Rubens , Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael rub shoulders here. Old master canvases patchwork the walls of this, the world’s largest collection of pre-1800 famous paintings. The royal family didn’t skimp. King Ludwig I ordered the building of a showcase for his extensive family collection in 1826. Even today, the Alte Pinakothek houses the world’s largest collection of its kind. It’s design became exemplary for Europe’s most iconic galleries in Rome, St Petersburg and Brussels. To fill some obvious gaps in the royal collection, The Pinakothek has acquired an additional line-up of famous 18th century paintings. As result, you’ll find yourself face to face with Boucher’s Madame de Pompidou, van Dyck’s self portrait and Rembrandt’s Holy Family.
