Hello dear friends,

the weather is gloomy but the events can warm you up, liven you up or cheer you up!

There is music, there is theatre and there is wine this weekend!

Here is what’s up in Munich this weekend:

Friday – Saturday: Spielart Theater Festival

This is an international theatre festival in Munich that was actually going on since 27.10. It is a gem as there are very few English plays in Munich and the plays in the festival are nearly all in English. As I was too late to learn about the festival and write about it, I looked into details of the festival and wrote about every single play in the coming two days. Please read the event details to get to know about the plays.

Friday – Sunday: Forum Vini

The international wine fair Forum Vini invites you to discover and taste the new trends about wine. More than 300 exhibitors will display over 2000 products.
