Drama series focusing on the Bavarian Grandauer family and the historic events between 1897 and 1954. At the end of the 19th century, police officer Ludwig Grandauer marries the mother of his illegitimate son, Agnes. After some years, they move to Munich with their three children Karl, Luise and Adolf, where Ludwig works at the police headquarters called "Löwengrube". During the next decade, the children have to learn to care about themselves because Agnes and Ludwig both die. When Karl returns from World War I, everything has changed. Luise is married to Max Kreitmeier who owns a bakery, while Adolf joins a new nationalist party called NSDAP. Karl himself is more moderate and works for the police like his father. In the 20s, he gets to know Traudl Soleder, daughter of a bourgeois family whose brother Kurt fights against the upcoming Nazi movement. After their wedding, Traudl's bugging mother also moves in.

Reflects perfectly the life in Germany by the end of the 19th century until mid 20th century
5 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Löwengrube tells the story of the Grandauer Family from the end of the 19th century until the fifties of the last century. I was amazed by the perfection of the details representing the different years which this series takes place. This drama gives you a great impression how every-days life must have been in Germany in the first half of the last century. Jörg Hube has done a great job representing the head of the Grandauer Family but all actors have done a great job. As mentioned in other reviews before, Grubes acting is Oscar-worthy. If you watch this series, you learn more about German history of the last century than any history-book can tell you. I am watching this series for the third time. For sure it will not be the last time...
