  • Even if you have little time, the visit to the Pinakothek der Moderne should be included in the visit program. Interesting building architecture and beautiful exhibits provide many impressions.

  • The building itself is worth a visit for its architecture. The collections are interesting, with pieces by world-famous painters (Picasso, etc.) but above all a rich collection of German painting, which is rarely seen in the museums of Paris, London, New York or San Francisco. The opportunity to discover the contemporary artistic movements of the Bauhaus.

  • This place is so much larger than I even realized. I think we saw like maybe a third of the collection. I love that it has a whole array of modern art, including product design and furniture, which was mostly what we looked at. We passed a tour group, and the tour sounded like a lot of fun and interesting information, so I definitely recommend timing your visit to catch one.
  • If you love modern architecture, design and very very modern art this is the place to go in Munich. I must say however that a lot of the graphic art was "Red stripe on a coloured canvas"- like.
