For the collections of Lothar-Günther Buchheim - painter, photographer, publisher, author of art books and novels - architect Günter Behnisch has designed an open and multi-segmented structure that reflects the museum's extraordinary diversity. The Buchheim Museum of Imagination houses four museums under one roof - a painting gallery, a graphic arts gallery, a European crafts collection and a museum for ethnological art. A unique architectural feature is the deck that is suspended twelve-meters high over the lake, providing museum visitors with a view of the town of Starnberg and the Alps.

This tour was planned for architects and planners so that they could see first-hand how this once-divided city emerged from the Cold War to become a leading commercial and cultural center in Europe.
