Munich Music Venues Overview

Kesselhaus Munchen - Concert Venue in Munich

Music venues in Munich cover everything from the bleating beats of a dance club DJ to the ear-splitting riffs of a Bavarian band’s accordion.

Sure, hitting a beer hall is a must, but one could easily argue that missing out on the plethora of live music opportunities in this city would be an equal travesty of justice. From major stadiums – this is Germany’s third largest city, after all – to hole-in-the-wall underground clubs with some of the most off-the-wall bands and DJs around, music venues of every style and permutation can be found throughout Madrid.

Whether live music lovers are jonesing for jazz, rock, rap, hip-hop, classical, or blues, Munich music venues provide in spades. Olympiahalle, a stadium built originally for the Olympics, is an easy choice for those looking for major national and international bands, but it’s by no means the only big player.

Ridiculously popular underground music venues include Muffathalle, Jazzclub Unterfahrt, and Backstage Club, where the music will never be what you normally hear on the radio and the crowds are ready to let loose long into the night.

Anyone on a budget looking for a healthy dose of culture should hit up Hochschule für Musik, a music venue that normally hosts free performances every week, while those looking for an authentic Bavarian experience should dust off their lederhosen and revel in one of the traditional concerts at the Nationaltheater.

And lest you forget, Munich is home to major clubs like Pacha that play host to major international DJs. And even if you think all a DJ does is steal somebody else’s live music, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy that stolen live music at any number of music venues in Munich.
