Hello dear friends,

This is the first weekend after Oktoberfest and the city takes it slow. It will be a rainy weekend and the events are also fitting to the mood. Some film, some concert, some second hand shopping and a good rest to recover from the exhaustion of the last weekends…Seems like a good plan?

The highlight of the weekend is actually the Munich Marathon. It will keep the city busy on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday there is the famous costume run and on Sunday there are the 10km, half marathon and marathon.  I have not included it in the list below but it is good to know about it because some roads will be closed to traffic so avoid driving in the city this weekend.

Here is what’s up in Munich this weekend:

Friday – Sunday: Stroke

Stroke is the Germany’s biggest contemporary art fair.

If you love art, check the festival out to discover new artists, directions and get inspiration.
