Pinakothek der Moderne
Haus der Kunst
Built in 1937, Haus der Kunst originally showcased only Nazi-approved work. After the fall of the Third Reich, the gallery turned its attention to artists banned by the Nazis, and now hosts innovative exhibitions of contemporary paintings, photography, sculpture, and more.
Though Berlin is still the epicenter of Germany’s urban art scene, Munich has its own rich collection of street art. Some of the best examples can be seen in the city’s pedestrian underpasses, such as the one that runs under the Angel of Peace monument (Friedensengel) near the Isar River. Urban art exhibitions can also be seen at MUCA, Munich’s Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art.
