Art, culture and history
The Alte Pinakothek presents more than 700 paintings by famous artists such as Dürer, da Vinci, Rembrandt or Rubens. A highlight forms the so called "Rubenshall" which displays paintings more than six meters high. At the time of completion, the Alte Pinakothek was the largest museum constructed. Yet, during the Second World War, it was heavily damaged and its reconstruction controversially discussed.
