80331 Munich, Germany
NileGuide Expert tip:
If you plan to tour the city, avoid this weekend, although the party is fun, it makes the city impossible to walk around at anything but a crawl.
The weekend around Munich's birthday is a massive party and everyone is welcome. Street vendors of all sorts, bands with large stages at each of the city's main squares, and many other events are organized in the old town area of Munich. Admission is free as it literally takes place all over the city center making it extremely hard to miss if you're in town during this time. The city was founded on June 14th, 1158, by Duke Heinrich der Löwe (Henry the Lion), and this celebration has taken place for over one hundred years.
