Guided tours

Schwabing around 1900

A "village" becomes an artists' colony: this guided tour allows you to experience the former artists' district as it was in around 1900 and also shows what characterises Schwabing today. 

A guided tour which will revive the former artists’ quarter and present the modern face of today’s Schwabing. You will get acquainted with personalities such as Paul Klee, Gabriele Münter, Wassily Kandinsky, Thomas Mann, Franziska von Reventlow, Frank Wedekind, Oskar Maria Graf and many others. Your guide’s stories and anecdotes will help you to feel part of Schwabing’s evolution, from the bohemians of the Regency period, to the crazy 1970s through to the creative hub it is today.
