He called himself as humorist, comedian and playwhright and is one of the most significant artists of Munich of the last century. Valentin Ludwig Fey, which was his civil name, was born in Munich in 1882. He was mainly known for the very special and distinct humor of his works which based in large part on his language arts and his so called “language-anarchism”.

In Munich a museum is dedicated to him, which is located inside the tower of the Isartor in the old town. At the museum you will discover a lot of funny, unusual and curious things; a lot of exhibits from and about the unique Karl Valentin.
