What is unique about the Bavarian region?

Bavaria’s capital Munich is the city of contrasts.
This city as well as the region are influenced by the northern alpine flair: you’ll meet urban and chic city dwellers as well as tradition-conscious Bavarians in traditional costume. Big industry and tech corporations have established their German headquarter in Munich. This region is characterized by two internationally recognised universities located in Munich, as well as a vibrant start-up and research scene.

Munich’s strong economy and industry are also reflected in art:
Large museums as well as various art collections can be found here. Creative talents in information technology as well as in the creative scene find a new home here.

The Regional Bavarian Art Scene

Old Pinakothek represented by a neoclassical building shows European art movements from the 14th to the 18th century.

New Pinakothek represents mostly the 19th century masterpieces Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Cézanne Originally completed in 1853, the building was destroyed during WWII. Instead of rebuilding the original structure, it was rebuilt in a postmodern style and re-opened in 1981.

With four major museums under one roof, the “Pinakothek der Moderne” is one of the largest museums in the world for art, architecture and design of the 20th and 21st centuries. The architecture of the spacious building with the glass-roofed rotunda invites visitors to explore links between the museums and gain new and surprising insights. Exhibitions and events from a variety of cultural fields complete the interdisciplinary agenda.

Spectacular architecture and two important work complexes by Andy Warhol and Cy Twombly characterize the Museum Brandhorst in the ‘Kunstareal’ Munich in addition to other works by Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Mike Kelley, Bruce Nauman and Damien Hirst, among others.

Sammlung Schack, a jewel among Munich’s numerous museums. Pictures of legends and fairy tales speak of distant lands and times past. After a period of renovation, the museum now presents its collection in a new guise and invites visitors to explore the visions and ideas of German Romantics.
