The best vantage points for fireworks

There will probably be a ban on firecrackers within the Mittlerer Ring in Munich in 2022 as well. Despite the reduced fireworks in Munich's night sky, people will once again gather in many places throughout the city to celebrate and toast the New Year. These are the most popular:

At Schwanthalerhöhe, at the foot of the Bavaria, there is a sweeping view over Munich. The city skyline illuminated by the fireworks is best admired from Olympiaberg. The small effort to climb the mountain is guaranteed to be rewarded. Munich's romantic Kindl spend the turn of the year not in the hustle and bustle of the crowd, but in more secluded places, for example at the Monopteros in the English Garden. Also ideal for couples to swear eternal fidelity to each other for years to come!

A wonderful view of the night sky over Munich can be had from the Friedensengel. This meeting place has meanwhile gained cult status and has become a firm New Year's Eve tradition. You can also toast with a glass of champagne on the numerous bridges over the Isar. For example, on the Reichenbachbrücke, a place with a panoramic view of the Isar and the Deutsches Museum. The Hackerbrücke near Munich's main railway station does not cross the Isar, but it is also a nice place to enjoy. While the incoming trains make their tracers below, there is plenty of space side by side on the long bridge to marvel at the fireworks over the city.

A sporty start to the new year - New Year's Eve run and New Year's run

Those who want to end the old year in a sporty way can take part in the New Year's Eve run in the Olympic Park in the 5 km and 10 km categories. For Nordic Walking fans there is a 5 km distance. Start and finish are at the guest of honour area of the Olympic Stadium (www.silvesterlauf-muenchen.de).

The Munich New Year's Run is the sporty and meditative start to the new year. The 7 km course leads through the English Garden (www.neujahrslauf-muenchen.de).

How about ringing in the last day of the year with a walk through Munich? Enjoying the fresh air outside before heading for a sumptuous New Year's Eve dinner. Here we present the most beautiful winter walks from the English Garden to the Isar - and the right refreshments to warm you up.
