Die Alte Nationalgalerie geht zurück auf eine Skizze Wilhelm IV. aus dem Jahr 1841 und die Entwürfe Friedrich August Stülers, die einen aufgesockelten tempelartigen Bau mit einer monumentalen Außentreppe und einer prunkvollen inneren Treppe vorsahen. Noch im Jahr des Baubeginns 1866 übernahm Johann Heinrich Strack die Bauleitung, da Stüler in diesem Jahr verstarb. Am 21. März 1876 wurde die Nationalgalerie eröffnet.

The Alte Nationalgalerie was the first building on the Museum Island Berlin to be restored under the Museum Island Master-plan, with the reopening ceremony taking place after three years' closure in 2001. Today, its collection of nineteenth-century art has been reunited for the first time in an authentic nineteenth-century building - with state-of-the-art security and climate control. A tour through the museum passes from the idealistic beginnings of Classicism and Romanticism through to the major European art movements of Impressionism, Symbolism and Jugendstil. It begins on the third, the uppermost level with masterpieces by Caspar David Friedrich, Karl Friedrich Schinkel and key representatives of Romanticism and Biedermeier. On the middle floor, the tensions and oppositions in nineteenth-century art can be experienced through works of the highest quality: the "German Romans" Anselm Feuerbach and Arnold Böcklin are juxtaposed with the Dutch-schooled realism of Max Liebermann; the modern vision of Impressionism crosses paths with the backwards gaze of the history painters. On the ground floor, the permanent exhibition shows how closely the triumph of Modernism was linked to the discovery of modern reality. Gustave Courbet and French Realism, Adolph Menzel, Lovis Corinth and not least the young Max Beckmann, represent critical stages on art's path to a new vision of humankind, society and nature.
