Built by Leo von Klenze, by order of King Ludwig I, and opened in 1836, the Alte Pinakothek is one of the seminal museum buildings. After suffering extensive damage in the Second World War, the building was rebuilt by Hans Döllgast and completed in 1957. In one of the world’s most important collections, it encompasses the history of European painting from the Middle Ages to late rococo. Among the more than 700 paintings are masterpieces by Altdorfer, Dürer, van der Weyden, Rubens, Rembrandt, Boucher, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci and Murillo.
