Garden

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.

"Ella" was the pet name Wassily Kandinsky gave to Gabriele (Gabriella) Münter. Many of the letters Kandinsky wrote to his friend, fellow artist, and companion of the years between 1902 and 1914 are tenderly addressed to his "dear little Ella."

ELLA is the only restaurant in Munich to offer a view of Königsplatz square and the surrounding magnificent classicist ensemble. The wide terrace is surely one of the most beautiful spots to catch some sun in the city. Inside, visitors can choose between the bar, the lounge, and the restaurant.
