If you're looking to spend some time learning about art, history, theatre and more, then Munich is the place for you. With plenty of museums to visit, you're never going to be short of culture while staying here.
From royal sleighs at the Nymphenburg Palace and art at The Pinakothek of Modern Art, to clothes from the Middle Ages at the Bavarian National Museum and fine architecture at the Cuvilliés Theater, there is so much variety to choose from.
Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung
Artistic quality and thematic variety have always been the guiding force in establishing exhibition programs at Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung, which has included art dating from 5000 BC up to the present day.
Covering themes that range from prehistoric worlds to non-European civilisations, this programme has featured exhibitions as diverse as 'Sudan', 'Korea; The Ancient Kingdoms', and 'The Gold of the Scythians'. An interdisciplinary exhibition was first organised in 2005, dealing with the subject of water in stunning realism.
The heart of the exhibition program, however, is based on western art including works by Old Masters ('Madame de Pompadour' or 'Frans Hals and Haarlem Painting') and classical modern art, featuring artists like Chagall, Gauguin, Giacometti, Kirchner, Magritte, Munch, or Picasso.
More than 80 exhibitions have been presented since the opening of the venue in 1985. In 2001, the Kunsthalle moved into new premises within the city block complex called Fünf Höfe (the five courtyards), which has been designed by the renowned Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron. For your chance to immerse yourself in art, pay us a visit - we're just a short walk away from the hotel.
Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung is located at Theatinerstraße 8, 80333 München, open from 10am to 8pm daily.
The Deutsches Museum is the ideal place to spend a few hours or even a whole day while learning about everything from transport to music and communication. The museum covers all spheres of life, offering its visitors the opportunity to learn about science by experiencing it up close, every day from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. It's a great place to visit if you are spending time in Munich with the family, as children will love exploring the many exhibits, particularly in the Kid's Kingdom area.
