He served as the president of the club in the following periods:
Up to now he is the club's president with the longest accumulated tenure, Wilhelm Neudecker (†) (1962 - 1979), widely considered as the "father of the modern FC Bayern", and Franz Beckenbauer, since 1994, being the ones with the longest periods in office after him.
In his third tenure he was the first to take the club to national championship honours, when Bayern defeated Eintracht Frankfurt in the final of 1932.
Landauer's tenure then was cut short as he, being jewish, had to resign soon after the Nazis took office in 1933. He had to spend two months in a concentration camp. In 1939 he fled to Switzerland.
The whole of the Bayern Munich team went to visit Landauer in Switzerland in 1940. The gesture though wasn't appreciated by the Nazis.
Kurt Landauer returned from exile in 1947, and was returned to the presidency of Bayern Munich for a few more years.
In the Munich suburb of Freimann a street is named after him.
