It’s worth visiting this museum for the building alone. Its spaces and finishes are just superb. We enjoyed the collection of German painters, especially the Max Klinger exhibits and learned quite a bit about other German artists as well. The traditional European collections are interesting...More

This museum of Fine Arts was built in 2004, at a massive cost of €74.5 million, and is a rectangular, almost cube like glass structure. It is a controversial building for the locals in Leipzig with very polarised opinions - you love it or hate...More
