Highly recommend this gallery. Excellent collection of Bleue Rieter works and beautifully presented and curated floors. The old studio of Lenbach is inside. He must have been v successful to have had such a palatial home!

The Lenbach House is an interesting building in its own right but the real reason for visiting it is its unrivalled collection of superb works by Blaue Reiter artists of the early 20th century: Kandinsky, Klee, Jawlensky, Marc, Macke etc.

This is a special place in Munich that I thoroughly recommend. Its an old very substantial house in the city that now hosts artworks of artists such as Kandinsky, Münter etc.
