Theatre performances, art exhibitions, live music from all over the world, and the colourful “Market of Ideas” – this is all about Tollwood Summer Festival.

At the concert stage, you will meet music legends and newcomers from all over Germany and other countries of the world.

Handcrafts market and international gastronomy choice speak for themselves.

The festival’s motto is “Culture for all”, so 70% of all performances are free to entry.

A month-long celebration of music and theatre – this is what Tollwood is!

First held in 1988, Tollwood takes place twice a year and is known as the festival “for humanity and environment”.

It promotes the ideas of waste reduction, organic living, and climate preservation.

With over 1.5 million visitors per year, it becomes a severe ecological and social project.

Tolerance, internationality, and open-mind spirit are the keystones of the event.

Of course, the entertainment program of the festival is vastly rich: from contemporary circus performances to cabaret shows, and comedy acts to children’s activities of all kind.

By the way, the Tollwood Winter Festival takes place on Theresienwiese from November until New Year’s Eve.


Arthotel Munich is centrally located and within walking distance of Munich central station.

Enjoy an extensive breakfast buffet in the art-filled breakfast room.

In the evenings, you can head to the “Bar Art” for drinks and snacks.

A popular hotel in a great location!
