Between Munich and the Bavarian Alps –
Museum Scenery Expressionism
Art and nature combine uniquely in the area between Munich and the Bavarian Alps to provide an intense experience. A concentrated and representative overview of German Expressionism can be enjoyed here in numerous museums.
The art of The Blue Rider (Der Blaue Reiter) originated in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps between Munich, Murnau and Kochel a. See and heralded a new art age worldwide. In the land of the lakes, Lake Starnberg, Kochelsee, Staffelsee and Osterseen, no less than four museums are dedicated to Expressionist currents in art.
The Bernried museum centres on works of the artists’ association, the Bridge, (Brücke, 1905-1913), founded in Dresden, and Kochel a. See, Murnau and Penzberg on those of The Blue Rider artists who were active in this area. Landscape, nature, art and culture come together singularly in a lake district of scenic beauty where artists like Wassily
Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter, Alexej von Jawlensky and the young Heinrich Campendonk discovered a new means of pictorial expression, developing with particular intensity the vivid and powerful images of Expressionism in all its facets.
The interaction between landscape and art becomes apparent during a museums and lakes tour to Bernried on Lake Starnberg, Penzberg near Osterseen, Kochel a. See and Murnau on Staffelsee. There the Buchheim Museum, Stadtmuseum Penzberg, Franz Marc Museum and Schloßmuseum Murnau can be visited with the MuSeenKarte Expressionismus, (Museum Scenery Expressionism Voucher).
Thereafter, you can take in the landscape of the lakes, go on excursions and enjoy the cordial atmosphere of our partner hotels.
