Europe’s hippest capital boasts non-stop nightlife, cutting-edge fashion, cosmopolitan eats and museum treasures galore. At the centre of the World and Cold Wars, it also oozes history, much of it sobering.
The Neue Nationalgalerie houses an impressive collection of 20th-century artworks up until the 1960s. The museum’s sleek and minimalist design – designed by the renowned architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe –provides an ideal backdrop for the display of modern art.
The collection includes paintings, sculptures, and multimedia installations. Look out for masterpieces by artists such as Picasso, Kandinsky, and Warhol, among others.
When to do it
The museum is open all year round, Tuesday to Sunday. Closed Monday.
