Maybe it had to do with the (temporary) exhibition about Goya, the Spanish painter with his dark pictures. But I didn’t really like the Alte Nationalgalierie. Too much designed to impress, the comfort of visitors not in front of its mind.
Yes, it’s a beautiful building. Especially on the outside. Insideit’s quite crammed and old-fashioned in a lot of corners. Not designed for huge amounts of visitors at least. And if you in addition to that also have a lot of art on display from the nineteenth century, not exactly my favourite period, you end up a bit lost in the world of art.
