The Forschungsanstalt Prof. Junkers, Dessau seemed to have been dissolved shortly after the Nazi Government took over control at the Junkers Flugzeugwerke. Prof. Junkers himself was no longer allowed to work at Dessau and had to move to Munich. As he even was not allowed to continue research business in the field of aviation, he concentrated on a former research field of himself, the steel metal constructions of houses. These research work was performed within the Forschungsanstalt Prof. Junkers, Munich GmbH, which was founded in 1934 at Munich.

While Junkers performed initial works at his private home in Bayrischzell, an official office of the Forschungsanstalt was opened at Munich in the Koeniginstrasse in 1934. But the work of the Forschungsanstalt Munich was often stopped due to the health condition of Hugo Junkers, who had to join hospitals for several times in 1934. When Hugo Junkers died in February 1935, the Forschungsanstalt Munich was abandoned and the final remains and documents were later transfered to Hugo Junkers private home in Gauting at the Hindenburgstrasse. Most of the private library of Hugo Junkers remained here until the sixities, when they were transfered to the Deutsches Museum.

A total of 14 patents were issued for Prof. Junkers at Munich during 1933/35:
