Located directly across from the Antikensammlung, the Glyptothek exhibits Germany’s largest collection of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture, exhibited in light-flooded galleries on pedestals which allow you to view the statues from all angles. A major highlight of the collection is marble statues from the pediments of a temple from the island of Aegina, a priceless relic which ranks up there with the Pergamon Altar in Berlin or the still-disputed Acropolis marbles in London’s British Museum. Also check out the 6th-century-B.C. kouroi (statues of youths), the colossal Sleeping Satyr from the Hellenistic period, a sublime bust of Caesar Augustus, and a haunting collection of Roman portraits.
