The Kunstareal is a museum quarter in the city centre of Munich, Germany.Area of artsIt consists of the three "Pinakotheken" galleries, the Glyptothek, the Staatliche Antikensammlungen, the Lenbachhaus, the Museum Brandhorst and several galleries. Also the Staatliche Sammlung für Ägyptische Kunst was moved to the Kunstareal in 2013. The history of the museums in this area of Munich began in 1816 with the erection of the Glyptothek at Königsplatz and was completed with the new building for the Egyptian Museum and the extension of the Lenbachhaus .Close to the Pinakothek der Moderne the neo-classical Palais Dürckheim served at times as a building dedicated to bringing art closer to the visitors, while the adjoining Türkentor, the gate of a demolished royal caserne, is set to become a display window for temporary contemporary art. As of 2009 a general project plan is under discussion to ensure the integration of the different museum buildings and to improve the access to the art district from the inner city.

Kunstareal is the Museum District in Munich. Here you find a handful for art, artefact and history museums located within close proximity to each other. Visit the Kunstareal and Pinakothek websites for more information on the full list of museums to be found around Kunstareal. During our recent visit to Munich we visited the three Pinakotheken museums; Alte Pinakothek, Neue Pinakothek and Pinakothek der Moderne (includes the Die Neue Sammlung) as well as the Lenbach House. These were all good art museums that we enjoyed. Note: You can visit the Pinakothek museums on Sunday for €1 per museum, making this a great day to visit 2-3 museums you are interested in.
