Okay, okay… I admit, this is n o t the actual stairway to heaven, b u t in my mind it´s pretty close to it 😉
As it is, these steps are leading up to the second floor of the Old National Gallery outside the building.
The Old National Gallery is situated on the Museum´s Island and has been build around 1867 – 1876. The Gallery is showing a collection of Neoclassical, Impressionist, Romantic and Early Modernist artwork, like The Monk by the Sea by Caspar David Friedrich or Adolph von Menzel´s Eisenwalzwerk (Iron Rolling Mill).
The Old National Gallery is one of my favourite art galleries here in Berlin, not only because of it´s magnificent collection but also because of its amazing architecture, of which I´m going to share with you more pictures of mine in the following weeks. 🙂
