Kulturhighlights in Bayern

Arts and Tradition, Culture and Castles in Bavaria

Our stories and listicles showcase exciting museum settings, iconic cultural monuments, and the most important castles, palaces and palace gardens in Bavaria. It's all about fine arts and street art, Lüftlmalerei (traditional mural art) and modern architecture. Sometimes pompous like the magnificent Herrenchiemsee Palace, sometimes record-breaking like the castle in Burghausen. We take a look at Bavaria's most famous film locations and meet Bavaria insiders who are dedicated to culture.
