The street festival takes place on Marienplatz, Munich’s historic central square. And in the evening, the honorable neo-gothic town hall of Munich opens its doors and turns into a huge party place for the gay and lesbian community.
The Schwules Strassenfest Munich (Munich Gay Street Festival) starts at 1pm and ends at 11.30pm. It is followed by a series of after-parties in all gay bars and clubs.
Over 10,000 visitors flock to the Glockenbachviertel to eat, drink, dance and generally party. Munich hosts many street festivals throughout the summer season, but this is perhaps the biggest festival of its kind.
You’ll find a large stage with DJs and actors as well as beer and food tents, a street market selling everything from novelty items and clothing to traditional gifts.
