What you'll do

Ready to dive into the fascinating dream world of expressionism? Then join me for a visit of the world-famous art collection of the Lenbachhaus. There we will admire the fascinating works of the Munich-based Blue Rider group, one of Europe’s most important avant-garde groups of the early twentieth century.

We will meet at Königsplatz, right under the powerful Propylaea. Before the discovery begins, I will give you an introduction into the history and characteristics of Blue Rider group and the fateful Königsplatz. To warm up - physically and mentally - I will offer you a cup of mulled wine or tee, while you will only have to listen and to enjoy. At the museum I will give you a tour through the Blue Rider floor and share with you my favorite artworks from painters like Wassily Kandinsky, August Macke or Paul Klee. After approximately two hours I will leave you and give you the chance to silently enjoy the countless, world-class art-treasures Lenbachhaus has to offer.

Please note that the ticket includes a free audio guide. The idea of the tour is however to learn from a passionate art-lover and expert and maybe to have a philosophical talk about the colorful and dreamy works. Besides: I do not want to overload you with information, but provide you only with the necessary background to make this tour a fun and easy-going experience (and not an exhausting lesson).
Other things to note
The tickets for the Lenbachhaus are included. There is also a cloakroom (and lockers) for your jackets and/or luggage. The tour is suitable for kids - though they don't get wine ;)
