The Gemaldegalerie

That name sure is a mouthful! This is Berlin's version of the Louvre with Germany's top collection of pre-1800's paintings. It's free to visit on Thursday evenings after 6:00PM and is open till 10:00PM on that night. There are famous paintings displayed from such artists as Durer, van Eyck, Rembrandt, Raphael, and etc. It's located in the Kulturforum in Berlin next to several other nice museums -the Musical Instrument Museum, the New National Gallery, and Museum of Arts and Crafts. Might be a really good area to visit while in Berlin besides Museum Island (which has the unbeatable Pergamon Museum.)
