Cultural institutions in Munich

Munich loves the autumn. And as the light gets warmer and the colours intensify, this is the time of year when Munich’s residents really get adventurous instead of retreating into themselves. Indeed, autumn is the best time for culture in Munich, falling in between Oktoberfest and the Christmas markets. Why not immerse yourself in the autumnal atmosphere and visit some of the wonderful events taking place as part of the city’s Kulturherbst (Autumn of Culture)? Walkers can soak up some autumn sun at their favourite spots in Nymphenburg’s Schlosspark (palace park) or on the steps in front of the Glyptothek art gallery. As the days get shorter, an evening visit to one of Munich’s museums is a particularly appealing prospect. Dive into Munich’s Kulturherbst (Autumn of Culture) with us!
