Culture for all: since the end of the 1980s, visitors have associated this festival with an atmosphere of tolerance, internationalism and openness. In 2021, the summer festival will take place outdoors without the usual tents due to the pandemic. In return, the event will run one month longer than usual until 22 August.
“Tollwood”, as it is simply known in Munich, takes place twice a year. In summer, the Olympiapark (Olympic Park) is transformed into the venue for this multicultural festival for about 25 days – from 26 June to 21 July 2019.
Tollwood can also be described with confidence as one of the birthplaces of the street food movement: around 50 food stalls can be found at the event, offering international delicacies – and the food is almost entirely organic.
Tollwood time is, of course, also concert time: newcomers, current chart toppers and legends, German artists and international stars are all eager to show off their skills on the stage in the music arena.
The market invites people to linger and enjoy, as it offers a range of handicrafts and gastronomic delights from every continent, and many points where visitors can enjoyably interact with the exhibitors. Over 70% of the events at the festival have no cover charge.
