and Sights

There is much to see in our vicinity. Baroque and Rococo have left us with famous churches and structures. King Ludwig himself built several castles within close reach, and renowned artists found inspiration in the charm of the pre-Alpine region…



The Buchheim Museum in Bernried houses a famous collection of expressionist art, ethnographic collections, and crafts from around the world. The museum building is situated in a beautiful park overlooking Lake Starnberg. And in about 30 minutes by car, you are already at the Deutsches Museum in Munich.

Museums in Penzberg

The new Museum Penzberg – Campendonk Collection impresses with changing exhibitions, showcasing many significant works of the artist and impressionist Heinrich von Campendonk, who worked in the area for several years alongside Franz Marc. The museum also pays homage to the Penzberg roots with an old, historically significant mining apartment. Numerous creative ideas complement the offerings.

Gabriele Münter-Haus & Franz Marc Museum

In the Gabriele Münter-Haus in Murnau, the summer residence of Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinsky, the original furniture of the artists is still preserved.

Foremost among them is the Wieskirche, the Rococo jewel and UNESCO World Heritage Site in Pfaffenwinkel. The name “Pfaffenwinkel” attests to the many churches, monasteries, and chapels, all worth a visit – Ettal, Rottenbuch, Benediktbeuern, Polling, Beuerberg, and many more.
