Ask any local in Munich where the most extensive nightlife scene is and they’re sure to mention Kunstpark Ost, a massive nightlife area in Munich that has been transformed into the largest entertainment complex in Europe and currently houses around fifty different venues, including clubs, bars, cinemas, skate parks, and arcades. Kultfabrik is the older of the two complexes in Kunstpark Ost and is the one located closest to the Ostbahnhof station, where streams of teenagers disembark for a full night of partying. Optimolwerke, meanwhile, is Kultfabrik’s newer, trendier, and smaller cousin that attracts an older crowd looking for a sleeker night out at a variety of upscale bars and clubs.

No matter what floats your boat, Munich nightlife areas have the kind of water you’re looking for.
