In 1908, after a journey through Europe and North Africa, the artists Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinsky, members of the first modernistic association, the Neue Künstlervereinigung München (NKVM), first came to Murnau a. Staffelsee, together with Marianne von Werefkin and Alexej Jawlensky. They enjoyed their stay and felt inspired by the beautiful landscape.
Already in the late 19th Century, the small medieval town of Schwalenberg became, due to the beauty of the landscape, the quiet harmony and the extraordinary light conditions, a favourite place for impressionist landscape painters. Painters from Düsseldorf, Berlin and other cities came to Schwalenberg for plein-air painting.
