The Blue Rider

A spectrum of expressionistic art unfolds during visits in and around Murnau, including the Castle Museum and many others.

Murnau Castle Museum

The Castle Museum depicts the internationally significant history of art and literature associated with Murnau in the first third of the 20th century, and conveys the special features of the Alpine foreland as well as Murnau’s local tradition and culture, which is closely linked with this outstanding artistic work.


Münter House

Gabriele Münter purchased the house on Kottmüllerallee in Murnau on 21 August 1909.


Franz Marc Museum

The Franz Marc Museum is a private institution. Its new extension was funded by a foundation and the museum is run without grants from the public sector. It was founded in 1986 in Kochel am See to showcase Franz Marc’s life and work in the setting of the landscape that so influenced him.


Buchheim Museum

Buchheim Collection – Museum of Imagination

For the collections of Lothar-Günther Buchheim - painter, photographer, publisher, author of art books and novels – architect  Günter Behnisch has designed an open and multi-segmental structure that reflects the museum's extraordinary diversity: a pan-cultural encounter and an exciting dialogue between the art of Expressionist and their inspirational sources from Africa and the South Seas.
