The state of play in Bavaria

Munich is a hotspot of auction houses, dealers and fairs, as Jonathan Franks reports

Munich special report

The Bavarian capital city of Munich is an ever-expanding centre of prosperity, home to the carmaker BMW, leading insurers and major industrial concerns as well as numerous IT businesses.

Among the 1.4m inhabitants in the metropolitan area and those living in the nearby region, parts of which have the highest proportion of millionaires in the country, are enough collectors to support some of the most renowned dealers, auctioneers and galleries in Germany.

The city is home to 15 auction houses who hold regular sales, among them specialists for coins, antiquities, books and militaria, while other German and international houses are represented with offices and showrooms.

Many of the city’s dealers, galleries and several auctioneers are based in the so-called Museumsviertel (museum district), just to the north of the city centre. Two fairs, Kunst & Antiquitäten and Highlights International Art Fair, have a secure place in the autumn calendar and local auctioneers are also gearing up for their November sales.
