Spending a day at Lenbachhaus is an excellent way to start to scraping the surface of Munich’s diverse and rich art scene. Located in the culturally renowned Kunstareal, or Museum Quarter, the lovely 19th-century Tuscan-style villa was the former residence of artist Franz von Lenbach. Acquired by the city in 1924, it has been wonderfully restored over the years and houses the municipal gallery. Visitors will find the artwork of Munich painters and contemporary artists, including 15th-century painter Jan Polack, 18th-century portrait painter Georges Desmarees, and a collection by the Blue Rider (Blaue Reiter) movement of Expressionist artists.
- Check out the extensive collections of art, including masterpieces by Munich painters, in the restored rooms, halls, and galleries of Lenbachhaus.
- Stroll along the modern Kunstbau, a 120-metre tunnel opened in 1994 in a formerly unused space above the Königsplatz U-Bahn station, to see contemporary art exhibitions.
- Wander around the Museumsplatz, which links Lenbachhaus and Kunstbau and is a regular host to projects by contemporary Munich and international artists.
Lenbachhaus is located in central Munich in the Kunstareal. It is surrounded by several other museums and attractions, which makes both exploration and transportation easier. There are two U-Bahn stations located close to the gallery. Theresienstrasse Station is located about a block to the north, while Königsplatz is a block south of Lenbachhaus. Both are serviced by subway line 2. Trams stop on the other side of the gallery, with #27 stopping at Pinakotheken and Karolinenplatz Stations. From any of the stations, visitors can walk not only to the Lenbachhaus, but also to many other galleries and museums.
