If you take the main staircase to the first floor, you will come to the Caspar David Friedrich Gallery, where temporary exhibitions showcase works of contemporary art whose roots lie in German Romanticism or are otherwise related to that movement or, finally, engage critically with the ideas held by Romantic artists.


The Caspar David Friedrich Prize, first awarded in 2001 on the strength of a competition, is fundamental to the Gallery’s programme.
