Experience the art of the ‘Blauer Reiter’ artists in the landscape that inspired them

Experience the art of the ‘Blauer Reiter’ (Blue Rider) arists where they lived and worked. An outstanding collection of German Expressionist and Post-War Abstract Art awaits you in a modern museum building high above Lake Kochel. In several different exhibitions held throughout the year the works of the ‘Blauer Reiter’ and the ‘Brücke’ artists are displayed within new contexts. Sculptures by Per Kirkeby, Tony Cragg, Alf Lechner and Horst Antes in the Museum Park round off this art experience, set against the impressive backdrop of the Bavarian Alps.
