If you love art and the play of light and the playful creation of light, you must go.
If you love the artful application of technology before it makes it into the mainstream, you must go.
Ingo Maurer is the design force behind publicly and privately commissioned lighting projects around the world. I wasn't familiar with his work before I went to the Schwabing showroom. For me, the experience was a discovery and so, so worth the few blocks off Munich's beaten path.
I urge you, solo traveler, to walk down Ingo Maurer's alley lit by birds in a tree. Each lighting fixture you'll find, inside the showroom and out, is a thrilling work of art. Get a feeling for it below.

I have the German National Tourist Board to thank for my trip. As always, the opinions are absolutely my own.
