The Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich

Veröffentlicht von

Die Pinakothek der Moderne ist ein neues Museum von Weltrang, das erst 2002 eröffnet wurde. Das Gebäude wurde vom Münchner Architekten Stephan Braunfels entworfen und gebaut, der für seine lichtdurchlässige und moderne Architektur viel Lob erhielt. Gezeigt werden Werke von weltberühmten Künstlern wie Pablo Picasso, Rene Magritte, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Paul Klee, Max Beckmann, Joseph Beuys, George Baselitz. Weniger als ein Jahr nach der Fertigstellung hat die Zahl der Besucher bereits die Millionengrenze überschritten. Damit gehört die Pinakothek der Moderne zu den meistbesuchten Kunstmuseen der Welt und ist nicht zuletzt wegen ihrer berühmten Gemälde ein Museum der Superlative.

However, the subway stops Universität (U3, U6), Odeonsplatz (U3, U4, U5, U6), Königsplatz (U2) and Theresienstraße (U2) are less than one kilometer away. So all subways except the U1 are close by. From the main station about 20 minutes walking direction. From there, bus number 100 also runs frequently to the Pinakotheken. Parking is not easy in the vicinity of the Kunstmuseum.

Tip: A great museum that deals with modern art is the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice. More information on this link

Our tip: Sightseeing tour through Munich

A great possibility to see a lot of Munich in 1-2 days are the so called Hop On / Hop off buses. These are red double-decker buses in British style, which drive on 3 different routes through Munich. You can get off at many stops and continue with a later bus. Tickets for the hop on / hop off buses are much cheaper on the Internet at Getyourguide than on site. Further information:  Click here
