Blaue Land, the blue lands refer to the region around the Kochelsee
with its moors, mountains and lakes. It was the source of inspiration
of the group of artists called Der blaue Reiter (The Blue
Rider) including the famous artists Wassily Kandinsky, Franz Marc, August
Macke, Alexej von Jawlensky, Marianne von Werefkin, Gabriele Münter,
Lyonel Feininger, Albert Bloch and others in the early 1900s. They drew
their inspiration from the exceptional landscapes.
Marc in particular felt at home here where he had created most of his
works. It was here where the Münchner Moderne, Munichs
avant-garde scene had its artistic roots in the early 1900s.
Visit the blue lands and its spots where the artists have worked and
be inspired yourself on the tracks of the blue riders.
