Haus der Kunst - House of Art


The House of Art is located south of the English Garden in the Prinzregentenstrasse. The foundation stone of the house of art was made in 1933 by Adolf Hitler. The design by architect Adolf Abel comprises a double symmetric museum building in the architectural style of the classicism. Under the name Deutsches Haus der Kunst, the two-storey exhibition building was a monumental building of the Third Reich.

After the Second World War the building was used by the American occupation forces as an officers' casino. But he location Prinzregentenstraße 1 was a tongue twister for Americans, so the casino was given the name "P-One". Under the same name Munich Nobel disco P1 and P1 Club bar are located here. During the eighties and nineties, the premises were used as an exhibition space for the National Gallery of Modern Art. In 2003 and 2004

A reconstruction of the museum building was made in order to restore its original state. To this day, the House of Art is not an art collection, rather it  serves the purpose of a center for contemporary art.
