Full description
King Ludwig I and his architect Klenze had a significant impact on the arts in Munich. Ludwig is attributed as saying that no one can claim that they know Germany if they have not seen Munich. Nevertheless, Munich is not only the classical city of King Ludwig but has also boasted a lively artistic past and has an interesting “art history” to tell since its founding in the Middle Ages.

Whether the topic of architecture, paintings, or sculpture – all forms of art are interwoven into the city’s history. Discover this network and get to know the city from the art historical perspective. The best way to approach works of art is to talk about them. The small group size gives you sufficient opportunity to exchange views and ask questions. For each attraction you will learn about the importance of the artwork.

On this private tour of Munich you also have the flexibility to choose the places that you would like to visit.
