The Alte Nationalgalerie
, together with the Altes Museum, the Neues Museum, the Bode Museum, the Pergamon Museum, the Berlin Cathedral and Lustgarten, make up the Museum Island complex in Berlin. It is situated in the middle of the island, between the rails of the Berlin Stadtbahn and Bode Street on the eastern banks.
It is connected to the Pergamon-Museum to the north, and to the Neues Museum, the Altes Museum and the Berlin Cathedral to the south. The building was designed by Friedrich August Stüler, with an architectural style that is a mix between late-Classicism and early-Neorenaissance, and realised by Johann Heinrich Strack. The exterior of the building still retains its original looks, whereas the interior has been renovated many times in order to suit the exhibits.
