  • Bright open gallery on two floors. All the Blue Rider school is represented. Excellent accompanying texts and the possibility of having a guided tour or an audio tour. Well stocked shop. My only negat...  more »
  • If you are expert and friend of the works by Franz Marc and his expressionist works, should have been in this place, raised on a slope, above the Kochelsee. A museum building composition from an older House and a merger with a highly modern, bright, successful building complex architecture. Only the parking issue is somewhat unfortunate, because you have to go steep paths to reach the Museum.

  • The 15minütige signposted footpath leading from the station to the Marc House, is already part of the experience. Slow convergence on quiet side street and you feel physically that he leads the way to the top. Idyllic to the part inside of kleinstädtisch village life. And at the end you will find: A modern building, situated on the mountain slope, which fit well into the landscape. Beautiful views of the Park Garden and even more out of the House. The most magnificent of the panoramic window on the first floor. The rooms are of different cutting - from intimate to spacious. This gives the exhibition curators beautiful options for thematically-linked units. The current exhibition is pedagogically wisely made, focuses (E.g. horse pictures Franz Marcs) and includes Marc in his era through a selection of works by Miller, Kandinskys Münters and others. We thought it was very well done. Also it brings the spatial boundary of the House with it, that attention is actually sufficient for the whole exhibition and one is actually almost to say after one and a half hours: too bad! Or: Yet again!

  • This place was in a beautiful setting and the lunch we had here was delightful. I think I went with a false assumption that we would see more of Marc's paintings, but I guess he is too famous to have his artworks in a small gallery. Despite this the museum was set up really nicely and I don't regret the visit at all!
  • Good reception of the museum, photos are forbidden, the exhibition is very interesting
  • Definitely worth visiting. Have been there twice on rainy days but enjoyed it both times. The audio guide makes it much more interesting. Found great gifts at the shop. We were there for about two and a half hours. The view of the lake is spectacular.
  • If you're interested in the art of Der Blaue Reiter group it's definitely worth checking out. I particularly liked the works by Wasilly Kandinsky.
  • An exquisite jewel of a museum: in tribute to Germany's most accessible expressionist and accomplished colorist.
