Garden

Please note: The garden is currently only accessible with a valid ticket for the museum.

Our garden is accessible to the public at no charge during the museum’s hours. No ticket is required for this small oasis of calm in the heart of the city. Sit down on one of the many benches and chairs to relax, catch some sun, and chat, or take a break from your visit to the museum.

Designed by Max Kolb, the garden was planted in Franz von Lenbach’s lifetime. With its fine views of the historic villa, it was and still is an integral part of the complex and a must-see stop on your tour of the museum.
