Visit of the town house of James Loeb in Munich

22. March 2016 


On 22 March 2016 members and friends of the James Loeb Society and interested persons had the opportunity to visit the city palais of James Loeb in Maria-Josepha-Strasse in Munich. It was built between 1910 – 1912 by Carl Sattler and stood on land belonging to the archaeologist Adolph Furtwängler. Loeb had purchased the land and Furtwängler’s library after the latter’s death. The magnificent facilities included an exhibition room for Loeb’s antiquities and a music room. Imposing fireplaces and stucco ceilings lent the house a stylish air.

Some 15 interested persons turned up in the hope of experiencing the remarkable ambience of the property. Unfortunately, however, the renovations had already begun, so that much was already boxed in and could therefore not be seen. We should like to thank Ms Hoffman of Immoscout, who said she would endeavour to ensure that the Society is able to view the rooms after the renovation work has been completed.
