Bernheimer-Haus – Beautiful building

If you were to ask me what the one place is you have to visit in Munich, regardless of the weather, the temperature or the season, it would be without a doubt the Bernheimer-Haus, also known as the Lenbach Palais because of its location on Lenbachplatz (or Lenbach Square).

The building was finished in 1889 by architect Friedrich von Thiersch. The façade was designed by his apprentice Martin Dülfer and back in that time the building was exceptionally innovative for Munich, especially with the neo-baroque style. 

The Bernheimer Family had a significant influence in the Bavarian kingdom and even Luitpold, Prince Regent of Bavaria, attended the opening of the building.

The story then follows restoration and repairs after the second World War, which cost around 100 million German marks, so that today we can still enjoy the majestic beauty of the building. 

Currently used as an office space and highly modernized on the inside, you can still look around on the outside and appreciate the great work of the architects.
