Das Muenter Haus in Murnau


Sightseeing: Museum

In this house, also known as the “Russenhaus” (Russian house), Gabriele Münter (1877 – 1962) and Wassily Kandinsky (1866 – 1944) lived in the summer months of 1909 to 1914. Here, works and ideas were developed which became famous as the art of the “Blauer Reiter” (“Blue Rider”).

With its staircase and furniture painted by Wassily Kandinsky the Münter-Haus also bears witness to the significant influence the Bavarian folk art had on the artistic development of its inhabitants.

Gabriele Münter lived with Wassily Kandinsky till 1914, and later with her partner Johannes Eichner (1886 – 1958) in this house until her death in 1962. A major part of Kandinsky`s early works survived the events of the Hitler regime and World War II in the cellar of the house, and is today the most important collection of the State Gallery in the Lenbachhaus in Munich.

After extensive renovation in 1998/99, the Münter-Haus is now open to the public. It was the artist`s expressed wish that her house would become a place of memory of her and Kandinsky`s art.

Gabriele Münter who, by her painting, holds an outstanding position in 20th century art, has furthermore contributed invaluably to art history by her unique donation of works of the “Blue Rider” to the State Gallery in the Lenbachhaus in Munich.

The Münter-Haus is a memorial to her and Kandinsky, since here they embarked on new, far-reaching paths of the arts.

Walchenseekraftwerk mit Ausstellung, 20 km entfernt


Sightseeing: Museum

It was Oskar von Miller, who turned his vision of ‘electrifying’ Bavaria and Bavarian trains into reality with the construction of the Walchensee power plant. On June 21, 1918, the Bavarian parliament passed a resolution to build the power station. January 24, 1924, saw the first turbine rotate. The Walchensee power plant remains one of Germany’s largest storage power stations to this day.

Lake Walchen is fed water from the Isar and Rißbach rivers. The Niedernach (1951) and Obernach (1955) run-of-river power plants were erected at these two feeders. Water from Lake Walchen charges through 450 meters of high-pressure pipes onto the Walchensee power station’s turbines. From here, it flows into Lake Kochel.
