Walking around Munich (especially the University area and other “hip” parts of town) you may see lots of advertisements for “Halloween Partys.” The first year I lived here I thought “ok, sounds great, let’s go to the Kult Fabrik” (the Kult Fabrik being the “largest party area in Europe” or a part of town where there’s a bunch of dance clubs, depending on how you look at it). Unfortunately, I soon realized that if you show up to any of these halloween parties and expect a halloween party, you will be the only one in costume. The next year I tried similar, at another location…but really, they do not do halloween here.
Beware of the ads, if you’re looking for a halloween party, look elsewhere. If you want some of the best beer in the world combined with some of the most historic (and fun) beer halls in the world, then Munich is the place to be.
This has been a public service annoucement.
