Summer is beginning and that also means that the season of outdoor events is now open! Since there being a lot of them in Munich is emblematic of Bavaria, we have compiled the best summer highlights in this post—this way your summer city trip is sure to be a great success!
Cinema at the Olympic Park
From mid-May to mid-September, special film experiences in the open air are waiting for you. Set in the magnificent Olympic Park—spend warm summer nights in front of the giant screen, which plays the best German and international blockbusters. You decide whether you wish to admire them from the deckchairs or from the picnic meadow. Unique in Germany: The cinema season in Olympiapark also shows movies in digital 3D. The dreamy evening backdrop of the Olympic Park, and the beer gardens surrounding the outdoor cinema make the experience complete. By the way: every World Cup match of the German team is also shown on the big screen ☺
Kocherlball for the entire world
There is an interesting story behind Kocherlball: Towards the end of the 19th century, every Sunday at dawn, domestic workers from the local manor houses used to meet every day for a boisterous dance, and so managed to compensate for the drab work. On the 200th anniversary of the English Garden, the ball was introduced in 1989, and has since then been held annually at the Chinesischen Turm (Chinese Tower)—this year it will be held on 20th July between 6 to 10 o’clock. Meanwhile it is of course not limited to domestic workers, but is a pleasurable experience for all Munich residents, and visitors from all over the world.
Munich Summer Night’s Dream
We are curious to see if the record number of visitors at the tenth anniversary last year can be topped again. If the weather plays along on July 26, and nothing prevents it from happening, because the program of the Munich ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is again very illustrious this year. Look forward to Bayern rocker, Haindling, the singer-songwriter, Amy MacDonald, and the soul king, Xavier Naidoo. After the end of the show, when darkness falls, the highlight of the event will begin: fantastic fireworks await you!
Royal Water Music on Lake Starnberg
For all friends of the classical masters and enjoyment of discerning music fans, the cruise MS Starnberg, offers a wide variety of events this summer with exactly the right party programs. Dine like the Wittelsbach Kings and listen to the sounds of Vivaldi, Mozart and Mahler. You will benefit from the excellent acoustics of the main salon on board. A cultural historian will tell you captivating and amusing anecdotes and fascinating stories from the times of the Bavarian kings. As a major highlight of the evening, the water music will be complemented by magnificent baroque fireworks!
