Services and jobs

Hiring out rooms

The academy has been based in the neo-classical banqueting hall wing of the Munich Residenz since 1959. The north-east wing, built by Leo von Klenze between 1835 and 1842, was reconstructed for the academy following its destruction in World War II. The facilities comprise over 135 offices and work rooms, a library, two small meeting rooms and a large 350-capacity lecture theatre. The rooms are hired out for cultural or science-related events.
