Venues in Munich usually come with a beer attached. Well, not really, but come on, you’d be out of your mind not to spend at least a few hours in this city’s amazing outdoor venues like its beer halls and beer gardens.
Properly sauced, get thee to the massive Allianz Arena, an ultra-modern stadium where the country’s most popular soccer team, FC Bayern Munich, plays to thousands of blitzkrieged fans. If watching Bayern Munich battle long-time rival TSV 1860 Munich doesn’t entice, there are professional basketball and ice hockey venues in Munich too! And even though the Olympics are long gone, Munich Olympiapark is a huge stadium complex and arena home to numerous sporting activities.
Then there are all the great Munich venues dedicated to music like Olympiahalle, also originally built for the Olympics, which is an easy venue choice for those looking for major national and international bands. Less mainstream but also hugely popular venues include Muffathalle, Jazzclub Unterfahrt, Backstage Club, Hochschule für Musik, and of course the world-renowned Pacha dance hall/club.
Munich is also home to many prominent theaters, including Allerheiligen Hofkirche, Deutsches Theater, Festspielhaus, Gärtnerplatztheater, Altes Residenztheater (Cuvilliéstheater), and Black Box im Gasteig, where everything from major touring shows to intimate local troupes can be enjoyed.
Whether you need a rooftop beer bar, a live music venue, a performing arts center, or just a hopping nightlife area, Munich venues have you covered.
