There are four museums dedicated to the Expressionists embedded in a fairy-tale landscape of lakes in Upper Bavaria: Buchheim Museum of Imagination in Bernried, Franz Marc Museum in Kochel am See, Schloßmuseum Murnau, the museum in a castle and Stadtmuseum Penzberg, the municipal museum of Penzberg. The have banded together under the banner of MuSeenLandschaft Expressionismus (Land of Expressionist Museums and Lakes). The Museen-Karte (Museum Pass) enables you to see all these extraordinary art collections. With this special pass, you pay the regular price in the first museum and then a discounted admission in the other three museums.
The museums can be reached by car or the German Railway, Deutsche Bahn. The Werdenfelsbahn railway line takes you from Murnau to the museums of MuSeenLandschaft Expressionismus at hourly intervals. Train schedules:
In the Buchheim Museum of Imagination, there is a world-famous collection awaiting you. Since the death of the art connoisseur and passionate collector, his critics too have become increasingly silent.
He was the youngest member of the Blue Rider group: Heinrich Campendonk. Nevertheless his perception was extraordinary. And thus, even today, his paintings bear witness to a wonderful artist.

In Munich, you will find two more museums with an internationally recognised collection of Expressionist art: Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus (Municipal Gallery in the Lenbach House) and the Pinakothek der Moderne (a modern art museum).
The Pinakothek der Moderne serves as a non-digital storage and memory assembled in tribute to the art and design of the 20th and 21st centuries, while also serving as a forum for the discussion of contemporary topics and trends.
