STAATLICHE GRAPHISCHE SAMMULUNG: This old Nazi-era administration building houses drawings by masters including Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci.
They’re part of 400 000-piece collection of printed and handmade drawings going back half a millennium.
The focus is on centuries-old German and Dutch works, German drawings from the 19th century, Italian Renaissance drawings and international graphic works from the 20th century to today.
The centre has limited exhibitions of the works (most of the pieces can be viewed on request) and further temporary exhibitions are to be seen at the Neue Pinakothek.
The collection is moving to the Pinakothek der Moderne on Barer Strasse after the second phase of its construction is finished.
Every once in a while a book comes along that changes your life.
Until it does, please consider buying Destination Munich and Bavaria, the grooviest, most informative guide on the market :-)
It'll give you full-colour maps, practical info and hundreds of tips on how to get the most out of your visit.
It's 227 pages of up-to-the-minute travel intelligence and it can be yours as an eBook for less than the price of an Oktoberfest beer. (read on)
