In the summer of 1988 Munich welcomed the first ever Tollwood Festival back when it was still a week-long event. This year marks its 25th anniversary, and since opening the festival has grown to nearly 30,000m² in size. These days the summer festival is part of Munich's cultural identity and you can experience it for yourself from 26 June to 21 July 2013. Every year up to 900,000 people visit the Olympic Park site to enjoy the extensive programme of music, theatre and shows spread across numerous stages. The cultural celebrations are rounded off with the 'market of ideas' where you can find bazaars and culinary specialities from every corner of the world.
