Bike Touring Highlight
The museum is a must. The building is one of the important museum buildings of the present. It was built according to the plans of the Berlin architect Volker Staab on the ruined building of the Technical City Hall, of which essentially only the parking garage stood. Awarded many prizes. Impressive, tall, bright architecture. Images can be viewed in daylight through sophisticated ceiling construction.
The GSM houses the largest Spitzweg collection in the world and at the same time the most important private collection with works from the German-speaking area of the 19th century. The museum is of national importance and comparable to the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin and the Neue Pinakothek in Munich. In addition, exhibits by Caspar David Friedrich, Adolph Menzel, Max Liebermann and others. Definitely recommendable is also the audio guide, which - in addition to a well-understandable description of the picture - contains a lot of interesting background information on painters and pictures.
