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 collection "Blue Rider" is always worth a visit. There are also regular temporary exhibitions.

  • the Lenbachhaus, the former seat of a famous Munich painter Prince, houses an important collection of romanticism to the modern, but especially numerous paintings of the famous group of painters of the 20th century, which gave the name "Blue Rider". From there, just as the art building in the U Bahn floor can be reached, and as well as the natural history museum with his Dinos is with just a few steps, etc.... The café in the courtyard of the Lenbachhaus invites you to relax and recharge your batteries and also a restaurant with outdoor terrace and views over to the Königsplatz and the impressive Propylaea.
