Kulturzentrum Gasteig

Lonely Planet review

Haidhausen is home to one of Munich's finest cultural venues, the Kulturzentrum Gasteig, whose postmodern, boxy, glass-and-brick design caused quite a controversy a generation ago. The name is derived from the Bavarian term gaacher Steig , meaning steep trail. The complex harbours four concert halls, including the 2400-seat Philharmonie, which is the permanent home of the Münchner Philharmoniker.
