A lot of people head straight for the beer halls when they come to this city, but concerts in Munich are not to be missed.
Live music in the city is as diverse as the town’s schnitzel is tasty, from major stadiums to cool underground haunts with some of the most eclectic bands and DJs around.
Live music of all styles and for all tastes is played regularly, whether concert-goers are in need of jazz, rock, rap, hip-hop, classical, blues, and almost any other style imaginable.
Major Munich concerts can always be found at Olympiahalle, a stadium originally built for the Olympics that now plays host to the biggest national and international bands around. Budget conscious live music hunters will do well at Hochschule für Musik, which normally hosts free concerts throughout the week, while those looking for an authentic Bavarian experience need look no further than the traditional concerts held at the Nationaltheater.
Stellar underground joints include Jazzclub Unterfahrt, Muffathalle, and Backstage Club, but really that’s only the beginning of all the great concerts there are to be had in Munich.
Of course, Munich is also home to major clubs like Pacha that bring in international DJ sensations, so whether people are looking to let loose with thousands of pretty people or jive slowly with a few dozen, Munich concerts have it all.
