Highly recommended: An artful excursion on 1st May
Are you up for a little joyride trough the 'Blue Country' retracing the steps of the 'Blaue Reiter'?
The Upper Bavarian countryside spoils us Munich residents with good food, world-best beers, lakes and art. What are we going to do on Labour Day? For example, take a trip to the Kochelsee. The Franz-Marc museum attracts with a special exhibition. 'Schöne Aussichten'displays works by the Blaue Reiter and Impressionists movements. 120 works of art give a profound survey of this interesting subject. Look forward to seeing the masterpieces by Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky, Gabriele Münter, Alexej Jawlensky, August Macke and Paul Klee interplaying with a choice of examples of international Impressionism. For refreshment, the Terrace Restaurant at Seehotel Grauer Bär will welcome you. With a view on the Kochelsee and the Alps, the fish and game dishes taste even better. If you would like to retrace Lovis Corinth's steps, you should continue your journey to the adjoining Walchensee. The Walchensee Museum houses the better part of the considerable amount of graphic work of the most expressive of the Impressionists of German History of Art. If you prefer a little exercise after lunch, go hiking on the Lovis-Corinth-Path. The easy route takes about one hour and you will pass seven commemorative plates documenting beautifully Corinth's work at the Walchensee.
