Munich Beer Festival
The annual highlight of Munich's calendar is, of course, the Munich Beer Festival or oktoberfest. However, the Bavarian capital is also known for a number of other traditional and cultural festivals, both large and small.
Munich Opera Festival
Since it began in 1875, every June/July Munich opera festival has been a unique opportunity for locals and visitors from all over the world to experience a wide range of operatic works - at the latest productions and festival premieres.
The Munich Beer Festival
With the traditional cry of “Ozapft is" (the barrel is tapped), the Mayor opens the oktoberfest – the world's biggest festival - at 12 o'clock noon. For two whole weeks, visitors flock to the beer festival to experience the thrill of the fairground rides, both modern and traditional, and to enjoy beer, food and old-fashioned Bavarian music in the beer tents.
Christopher Street Day in Munich
Christopher Street Day (CSD) is a day of celebration for the gay community around the world. It remembers the day in 1969 when gays and lesbians took to the streets of New York to demonstrate against discrimination. CSD has been celebrated in Munich since 1980. Now, more than 200,000 visitors come to Munich every year to enjoy the open-air events at Marienplatz and Rindermarkt.
