Art Nouveau in Munich

Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) is an epoch in art history and is named “Jugendstil” after the illustrated cultural magazine “Die Jugend”, which was founded in Munich in 1896. Renowned artists contributed to Bavaria’s capital city becoming one of the centres of art nouveau. Numerous buildings in the city still bear witness today to this scandalous style which worshipped beauty and radically challenged older traditions.
