Art aficionados will hit the mother lode with this trio of museums bulging with treasures dating from the Middle Ages. It’s impossible to see everything in one visit, so concentrate on the period that interests you most. To see a stunning collection of canvases from the 14th to the 18th centuries, including plenty of outstanding works by Dürer, Rubens, Rembrandt and other heavy hitters, head to the Alte Pinakothek.

Next door, the Neue Pinakothek zeroes in on the 19th century with works by crowd-pleasing French impressionists like Renoir, Monet and Gauguin, brooding landscapes by Caspar David Friedrich, and Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers.

Last, but not least, is the adjacent Pinakothek der Moderne, Germany’s largest modern art museum. It opened in 2002 in an extravagant building that perfectly showcases works by Picasso, Warhol, Beuys and other artists who have dominated the art world throughout the last century.
