Towards the end of the 19th century Dachau had a special fascination for landscape painters. They made a significant impact on life in the town, esteeming and preserving the customs of the region, seeking to conserve architecturally attractive features of the locality and to protect the unique natural environment.
By 1900 Dachau had become a centre of landscape painting known far beyond the boundaries of the area.
The Dachau artists' colony had achieved a high reputation nationwide.
Three painters were largely responsible for this development: Adolf Hölz, Ludwig Dill and Arthur Langhammer.
