Doors of the Munich Museum Quarter

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

Yesterday, I went on a Doorscursion in the Munich Kunstareal, the museum quarter. It is easily accessed by a short walk from the city center, by street car or subway. It is one of my favorite areas in Munich. The museums are within walking distance. You can visit one museum with world-famous art worksand then stroll over to the next. As long as you feel like it …

In the Kunstareal you will find, among others, the Alte Pinakothek (collection of Old Master paintings), the Neue Pinakothek (focus on European Art of the 18th and 19th centuries), the Pinakothek der Moderne (Modern Art of the 20th century) and the Museum Brandhorst (comprehensive Modern Art collections, f.ex 100 works of Andy Warhol and more than 60 works of Cy Twombly).

I walked past the Egyptian Museum and then continued to the Lenbachhaus (famous collection of works of the Blue Rider) and the Glyptothek (Greek and Roman Sculpture).
