After 4 years of extensive reconstruction and expansion by British star architect Norman Foster, the Municipal Lenbachhaus Gallery, former seat of the great painter Franz von Lenbach, was spectacularly reopened on May 8, 2013. Generous expansion space in the "Golden Cube" and the new circulation through state-of-the-art gallery rooms with pioneering LED lighting provide an ideal environment for the display of the unique "Der Blaue Reiter" (Blue Rider) paintings and the other collections of the museum. The Kunstbau Lenbachhaus continues showing a series of contemporary art exhibitions.
