Visiting the Top Museums in Munich from Ahmedali099's blog

If you're looking for holiday that's full of art, history and culture, then look no further than Munich. Hotels in the area offer knowledgeable concierge services that will help you find your way around the city and give you advice as to the best sights and attractions. And since Germany has always prided itself on its access to art galleries and exhibitions, there's lots to see around the city's busy streets. From science and technology, architectural exhibitions and displays, to Europe's Great Masters - Munich is full of intellectual food for inquiring minds. Here is a list and description of the top 5 museums and galleries in Munich.

Deutsches Museum (Museumsinsel 1, 80538 Munich) Tel. +49 (0)89 / 2179-1

Almost two million visitors Munich Attractions tickets offers pass through the grand entrance of this museum each year, attracted by its reputation as the largest museum of sciences in the world. Its exterior and interior architecture are so impressive that when Julius Rosenwald gave his endowment to Chicago's own Museum of Science and Technology, he modelled the building's structure on the Deutsches Museum, a central pillar in the architecture of Munich. Hotels nearby have some great cafes for enjoying an afternoon coffee if you need a break from the museum's exhibitions, which include displays of musical instruments, communication devices, and new technologies.

Munich Stradtmuseum (St.-Jakobs-Platz 1, 80331 Munich) Tel. +49 (0)89 / 23322370

The Munich Stradtmuseum, named The City Museum of Munich, is an establishment specialising in Munich's social history, with exhibitions about National Socialism in Munich and the cultural history of the city - including the work of Erasmus Grasser. It also houses some interesting exhibitions on the history of puppet theatre and photography. However, what makes this museum truly special is its unique architecture, which looks something like an Expressionist medieval library on the set of a strange 1920s German silent film. Its strange angles and positioning make it well worth the visit. Placed right at the urban core of Munich, hotels, restaurants and bars are easily accessible from this museum, making it a great afternoon visit before experiencing the city's nightlife.

Alte Pinakothek (Barer Strasse 27, 80333 Munich) Tel. +49 (0)89 / 23805216

The name of this museum comes from the Greek, meaning old gallery, which gives a taste of what you'll find inside this gallery at the heart of Munich. Hotels and cafes surround this museum, making it the perfect mid-morning stop before going for lunch, though you might want to wander through its corridors and galleries all afternoon. This museum is world famous for having the one of the largest collections of Old Masters in Europe - featuring the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Sandro Botticelli, Raphael, Rembrandt, and Hieronymous Bosch. It is also right next to two other museums that make up a fantastic trio of art collections: the Pinakothek der Moderne (the modern art gallery) and the Neue Pinakothek (the most important gallery of 18th and 19th century art in the world).
