Murnau & The Blue Land around Lake Staffelsee

Nature, art and culture create a special bond in Murnau. Situated at the foothills of the Bavarian Alps, only 67 KM south of Munich on the way to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the charming town overlooks Lake Staffelsee and the Nature Reserve “Murnauer Moos”.

The seven islands of the lake can be surrounded on a boat trip. The spectacular landscape attracted world famous painters like Kandinsky, today remembered in two museums. Murnau is famous for being the home of Expressionist painting. This heritage of art is exhibited in the “Schlossmuseum” and in the little villa of the Münter-House where Kandinsky lived from 1909-1914 and found his way to the revolutionary development of non-representational painting. The Schlossmuseum displays a collection of the “Blue Rider” artwork.

Murnau is a member of EuroArt, the European Federation of Artists’ Colonies because you find contemporary art in numerous galleries as well. More than 50 artists live and work in Murnau. Many exhibitions show their artwork throughout the year.

Colourful houses form the special setting of Murnau’s pedestrian zone. Visitors like to stroll through the little shops and enjoy bavarian specialities in cosy restaurants and typical beer gardens where you can taste the locally brewed beer.

Murnau is also known for its genuine traditions and special festivals like the Corpus Christi procession on lake Staffelsee, the lakeside festivals in July/August, the birthday serenade for King Ludwig II in August, the annual music festival “grenzenlos” in October, the Leonhardi Horse Parade on November 6th and the Christmas Markets in December. Moreover, some of Bavaria’s most known highlights as the King Ludwig castles are within easy reach and make Murnau an ideal destination for sightseeing.
