Ich kann die Tour nur jedem empfehlen, insbesondere mit den beiden Damen als Guide. Die Führerin in der Gallerie Alter Meister konnte mit Ihrem extrem fundierten Fachwissen zu den Gemälden besonders glänzen. Ihre Erzählweise lässt die Gemälde auf eine ganz besondere und Weise auf einen eirken, als wäre man Teil der Geschichte. Ganz großes Kino. Auch für Laien sehr kurzweilig, sofern man zumindest einen Funken Interesse mitbringt.

Interessant, jedoch zu viele Jahreszahlen und ein bisschen peppiger hätte es sein können. Die Touristenführer haben ein gutes Wissen.
