The gentle winter in the city of Munich, has given us much joy, so far, with its many hours of sunshine and mild temperatures. The idea of lengthening days and of the first birds chirping increases our anticipation of the arrival of spring in the city. The sunny days awaken our need for idyllic walks through the English Garden and memorable shopping tours along the Kaufingerstrasse. In addition, the city of Munich once again offers its spring visitors numerous event highlights.
Enjoy the awakening of spring in the Bavarian metropolis with our various event tips from March to May .
