Photography inside the museum building

The Franz Marc Museum is a private museum. The successful symbiosis of architecture and art provides visitors with a unique opportunity to admire the works of Franz Marc and the ‘Blauer Reiter’ artists in the landscape in which they were created. Visitors are, therefore, cordially invited to enter into a personal dialogue with the works in our collection.
