A traditional gallery in Maximilianstrasse with an emphasis on the classic modern and Bauhaus styles.
Alter Hof castle, the residence of the Bavarian royal family since 1253, was built to the northeast of the city so as to protect the Emperor against possible uprisings by the citizens of Munich. The remains of the castle, with its late-Gothic bay window (known as the Affenturm), the gatehouse to the north and the enclosure to the west, form the oldest group of medieval buildings in the city. The buildings have been reconstructed several times, most notably in the 19th Century and after the Second World War.
This collection comprises of the treasures of the Bavarian royal family and other aristocratic families. The Wittelsbach family jewels form the heart of the collection and include precious objects and insignias of royal power dating from early Middle Ages, as well as the Bavarian King's crown. The 16th century, jewel-encrusted 'St. George', is breathtaking.
Marstall is a leading venue for experimental stage productions, often combining the performing arts, contemporary arts, modern musical theater and progressive dance. It is also home to the Bavarian State Drama Company, and attracts many top-caliber performers of international renown for collaborative performances. Ticket prices and play timings are available on website.
The Schauspielhaus is the major stage and theater of the Munich Kammerspiele and probably one of Germany's remaining well maintained Art Nouveau theaters. Built in the beginning of 1900 by architects Richard Riemer Smith and Max Littmann, the theater was restored between 2000 to 2003. You will only find German theater here and if you know the language you will thoroughly enjoy the shows, of which quite a few are award winning plays.
