The past days proved it beyond doubt: summer found its way into the Bavarian state capital! And where could you spend a more exciting summer than in Munich? For the upcoming hot months, there is already a diverse programme that we would like to present to you in the following:
At the moment, the motley Tollwood summer festival takes place in the Olympic Park. Here, you will find culinary bio-delicacies from all over the world, great live music and numerous booths with creative craftsmanship until the 16th of July. Moreover, the organisers are very involved with humans, animals and the environment – pure soulfulness and fair enjoyment of culture are guaranteed.
Christopher Street Day
We continue colourfully from the 8th to the 16th of July at the annual Christopher Street Day and the Pride Week. In keeping with the motto “Same rights. Against right-wing” a varied programme is offered, consisting of street parties, demos, church services, concerts and cinema. Highlight is the policy parade on the 15th of July.
If you are missing some beach feeling in the heart of the city, you should visit the impark summer festival in the Olympic park. From the 3rd to the 27th of August, you can stroll down the gourmet alley, enjoy the fantastic view over Munich from the big wheel or cool off with a white-water ride. Those who like it more relaxed, can drink a Mojito in a deckchair of the beach bar filled with sand while watching the risky tricks of the wakeboarders in the Olympic lake. At the 10th and the 24th of August, there are spectacular fireworks in the evening.
If you would rather like to carry on in the good old-fashioned way, you must not miss out the “Kocherlball” on the 23rd of July at the Chinese Tower in the English Garden. The tradition of this popular open-air folk dance event originates in the 19th century, when the house workers met early in the morning before the commencement of their duties to dance. Nowadays, everybody with enough courage can join under professional dance instructions.
And from the 16th of September to the 3rd of October, the most popular event in Munich takes place: the Oktoberfest…
And to those who travel to Munich for these special events, we can only recommend a room in one of our Living Hotels, because here it is most livable, especially in summer. We are looking forward to welcoming you here!
