Guided tour for groups

Schwabing – home of creativity

Creativity in Schwabing: tracing the steps of light sculptures, local heroes and global players. Group walking tour with official City of Munich guides.

Schwabing is where Thomas Mann wrote his homage to Munich: “Munich was shining ...” Back then, the district was a magnet for artists and creative types, as it is today. Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc founded the Blue Rider movement and had their ateliers here, just like Paul Klee and Gabriele Münter. Helmut Dietl filmed the legendary TV series “Munich Stories” here and many stars from the big screen have settled down in the area.

The district is home to the Hans-Bosl-Stiftung, a foundation where young dancers come to prepare for their turn in the spotlight, and Bernd Eichinger’s company Constantin Film AG, which brings its award-winning films to cine­mas around the world.
