The Munich Künstlerhaus

Das Münchner Künstlerhaus The idea for this building came from a circle of famous painters, sculptors and musicians. When in 1900 Prinzregent Luitpold of Bavaria officially opened the „Künstlerhaus“ in Munich the intention of its founding fathers was fulfilled: to create a meeting place between artists and society. In the spirit of historicism Gabriel von Seidl built an edifice in the neo-renaissance style that was a contemporary monument for the turn of the century. The upper class celebrated together with ennobled artists as Franz von Lenbach, Fritz August Kaulbach and Franz von Stuck. To this very day the „Künstlerhaus“ has been reserved as a particularly popular meeting-place and location for artists in Munich.
