The Neue Nationalgalerie has been closed for several years since January 2015 due to extensive renovation work and is only sporadically included in cultural events (e.g. Berlin Art Week 2015). The building is scheduled to be handed over at the end of 2020, and reopening is planned for a few months after handover.
Nevertheless, it is worth taking a walk around the only building built in Germany after World War II by the famous German-American architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Since it is located near the Kulturforum, the Philharmonic Hall, Potsdamer Platz and the new gallery district on Potsdamer Strasse, a visit here can be perfectly combined. The building of the New National Gallery is considered an icon of classical modernism. It was opened in 1968.
