Art Nouveau Doors in Schwabing

For translation please use the Google Translate Button on my site.

Schwabing is a district of Munich. At the turn of the 20th century, numerous Art Nouveau buildings were erected, especially in Schwabing. Around this time, Schwabing flourished as an artists‘ and bohemian quarter where many important literary figures and painters of the time lived and worked, including Erich Mühsam, Stefan George and Frank Wedekind, Paul Klee, Gabriele Münter, Wassily Kandinsky and Rainer Maria Rilke.

Nowadays Schwabing is largely gentrified. However, Munich is one of the strongholds of Art Nouveau in Germany and most of the surviving buildings are in Schwabing . But there are also beautiful edifices from the era to admire in the posh district of Bogenhausen.

After admiring Art Nouveau buildings in Bogenhausen and Schwabing in 2021, I went back to Schwabing this year on an, unfortunately very gloomy, January afternoon to see more buildings from the era.

Below I show the photos of the doors. Unfortunately, the entrances to the buildings were mostly parked up, but I tried to make the best of it. The first and the last door are from the Wilhelminian period but not Art Deco.

This is a contribution to Dan Antion’s Thursday Doors. Thanks Dan for hosting ! It’s good to be back to this fun challenge.

  1. Thank you Dan. The door you liked so much belongs to the old building Munich Re insurance company. There are even more splendid doors on the front of the edifice but security asked me to stop taking photos there.

  2. Wow! I was going to say that it was hard to choose between 13,15 & 17. Then I saw that last door and they are all tied for 2nd place. That arched door and the paneled arch surround. These are all wonderful doors. Thanks for sharing them with us.
