Attention – laughing is sure to follow!

 The museum is dedicated to the life and work of the Munich comedian and folk singer Karl Valentin and his like-minded partner Liesl Karlstadt. Valentin is well known for his bizarre humor and is loved not only by Bavarian people.
Inside the museum you will find an impressive collection of the artistic diversity of Karl Valentin with exhibits such as the fur-studded winter toothpick or the nail in the wall to which Valentin hung his work as a carpenter when he decided to become a comedian. A cinema shows you the films of Karl Valentin and Liesl Karlstadt in full length.

Tip: In the cozy traditional café “Turmstüberl” in the south tower of the Isar-gate, there are more curiosities to see.

Near Valentin Karlstadt Musäum

In 1959, eleven years after the death of Karl Valentin, the writer and painter Hannes König, a companion of Karl Valentin, set up the collection with the help of volunteers in the war-torn south tower of the Isar. At that time it was still Valentin-Musäum. The invitation card for the opening was - how could it be otherwise - from a four-kilogram bricks, which had to be shown at the cash register.The museum has remained in private hands since then. After the renovation of the Isartor in the 1970s, the North Tower could also be used for the exhibition. Over time, Hannes König expanded the collection with works by Liesl Karlstadt, which is why the museum has been called Valentin-Karlstadt-Musäum since 2001.
