New Year`s Eve in Munich

In the hustle and bustle of the city or tête-à-tête in the English Garden

Some minutes before midnight, hundred thousand Munich residents surge into the streets to pop the champaign corks and welcome the New Year cheerfully with skyrockets and firecrackers. Where to go for the best view on the colourful spectacle? Here is a small selection of popular places for New Year`s Eve:

The heart of the city is a very popular meeting point for all those who want to celebrate in the hustle and bustle of the city.

Take a stroll through the nighlife district of Munich – Especially at the Münchner Freiheit square the party will be on!

Get an amazing view of the sky over Munich from the Angel of Peace. This meeting spot has by now become cult and a fixed New Year`s Eve tradition.

The view on the city`s skyline illuminated by the fireworks is scarcely to be capped. But before one has to climb the hill – an effort which is definitely worthwhile.

Munich residents with a romantic nature tend to spend this night at more remote places, as for example at the Monopteros in the English Garden – an ideal place for couples to pledge one`s troth for the New Year.

And for those who have a good resolution from last year to comply with, the Silvesterlauf on 31 December is a good opportunity. Since over 25 years, the olympic parc is the location of the 10 km circuit which is being tackled by over 2000 participants from Bavaria and other states, from Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Italy, Russia or further nations – in any wind and weather.
