Municipal Gallery in Lenbach House, Munich
(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Housed in the former residence of Franz von Lenbach, Municipal Gallery in Lenbach House was sold to the city in 1924 by the artist's widow. Shortly after, Munich's city art collections found a home together inside the building. The exhibits map out Germany's major art movements from the 19th century to present day. The Munich Secession group's work combined Impressionism, avant-garde, and Art Nouveau to create a style completely German. View their work and others in the 19th century gallery. A gallery dedicated to the Objectivity movement continues the journey through German art history. For art created after the end of World War II, visit the Art After 1945 gallery, where experiential, conceptual, and installation art dominates. The friendly layout includes an intimate restaurant in a modern structure overlooking the museum grounds.

  • The Lenbachhaus is a wonderful retreat for lovers of the Blaue Reiter group of artists. I went to the second time this exhibition two years... beautiful. Also the tract for Joseph Beuys is certainly interesting and worth seeing. You have to like everything Yes. There is still much to see more in the Lenbachhaus and try... just let go and be surprised.

  • The Lenbachhaus provides a great framework for excellent art. The arc to Beuys ranges from the works of the artists group "Blue Rider" about the Munich artists such as Corinth, Slevogt, stucco, and of course Lenbach. During the week, you will find there also quiet. And an annual pass is worth starting from the 2nd visit. So, you can come more often and take many short break.
