Across the square from the Brandhorst Museum, Munich’s Pinakothek trio (the Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek, and Pinakothek der Moderne) span European art history from the Middle Ages to today in blockbuster style. Albrecht Dürer’s Self Portrait with Fur-Trimmed Robe (Alte Pinakothek), with its Christ-like gaze and textural richness, is the star of the show, but there are abundant other treasures, not least the Pinakothek der Moderne’s line-up from the Blauer Reiter, Munich’s home-grown Expressionist movement. A day pass to all three museums is just €12, but given the extent of each collection, you may prefer to pick just one and wander at leisure.
