The Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior, for Sport and Integration is a ministry of the Free State of Bavaria based in Munich . It was called the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior (BStMI) until October 2013 , then until March 2018 the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior, for Building and Transport and until November 2018 the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior and for Integration .

Joachim Herrmann ( CSU ) has been Minister of State since October 16, 2007 , and Gerhard Eck (CSU) has been State Secretary since October 14, 2009 . Head of office has been Ministerial Director Karl Michael Scheufele since March 14, 2019 .


The Ministry was established on October 29, 1806 for the recently founded Kingdom of Bavaria as the Department of the Interior . The first Minister of State for the Interior was Count Maximilian von Montgelas until 1817 . On January 1, 1904, the Ministry of Transport was spun off. It was called the Royal State Ministry for Transport Affairs and was responsible for railways, post, telegraphs, steamship operations, the management of the state authorities for transport , in particular the Royal Bavarian State Railways , the Royal Bavarian Post and their telegraphs .

The official building of the ministry is the former Odeon , a classicist building by the Munich architect Leo von Klenze from 1828 at Odeonsplatz 3 in Maxvorstadt , which served as a concert hall until it was destroyed in the Second World War . The post-war building was based on a design by Josef Wiedemann .


The Ministry is primarily responsible for internal security , voting rights , local government and construction in the Free State. It summarizes its activities in three subject areas: Citizens and the state with the areas of elections, municipalities, immigration law and e-government; Security with the areas of internal security, police , road safety , constitutional protection , fire brigade , rescue services , disaster and civil protection .

The subject areas of construction and transport , for which the previous supreme building authority in the Bavarian State Ministry of the Interior was responsible for construction and transport, were completely transferred to the independent State Ministry for Housing, Construction and Transport in 2018 .
