Start your Munich nightlife by unwinding over a beer in a quiet, medieval Altstadt (Old Town) bar. Or kick your Munich nightlife up a notch at a lively table in the old Hofbruhaus brewery. Then let your hair down in a club in Munich's trendy Schwabing district near the University of Munich.
Order a drink at the Hofbruhaus brewery, Munich's most famous bar, or opt for quieter nightlife at lesser-known beer gardens or the small, medieval haunts of Munich's Altstadt (Old Town). Join in Munich nightlife on Marienplatz square, which often hosts public street parties and festivals. Indulge in decadent cocktails and beer in retro bars in trendy Schwabing, popular with Munich's students and young nightlife lovers.
If your idea of great Munich nightlife includes clubbing, head to bohemian Schwabing, where techno music pumps out onto the street. You can join 20-somethings dancing to the music as DJs spin tunes on the decks in Haidhausen, a Munich district also known for its jazz clubs. Sip long drinks and take in cool jazz here and on side streets just off Munich's Maximilianstrasse.
Enjoy the nightlife at Munich's live classical music venues such as the upscale Munich Philharmonic and Bavarian State Opera. Or book tickets for a concert at Munich's National Theatre on Maximilianstrasse. If jazz is more to your liking, head to the Haidhausen district, where nightlife includes Munich's live jazz, blues and rock music clubs.
