Music and Arts

The achievements of our scientists are great works of art, indeed – inspirational, creative and highly skilled craftsmanship. And keen musicians can join one of Munich’s numerous academic choirs, orchestras and bands.

The Architecture Museum in the Pinakothek der Mo­der­ne is one of the best of its kind in the world. It is both an archive and an exhibition, combining collection, teach­ing and research – a unique position as a uni­ver­sity institution in Germany.

Legendary uni film club

Most weeks during term, the film club TU Film screens a new movie – showing everything from blockbusters through low-budget masterpieces to all-time classics. The historic Carl-von-Linde lecture theater is the venue. True to tradition, the club shows Die Feuerzangenbowle (The Punch Bowl) every year just before Christmas. This school-set German film from the 1940s has become a cult favorite with students.
