For grown-ups, it's a haven of bliss – for children, the city's biggest sandpit. The Kulturstrand in Bavaria's capital city is a welcome relief for all, especially city-dwellers who, according to the organisers, are always needing a holiday.
There's no plane journey, simply a dream island in the midst of the metropolitan ocean. You can meet on the square, have a chat and swap news. It's like switching from stressed urbanite to cool flaneur. Don't rush past, join in with the rest.
Right there, in a public space in the city centre, the Kulturstrand conjures holiday feelings the second it comes into view. Roads become beaches, the buzz of the city becomes the swish of the sea, traffic islands become urban atolls, is how it's seen by die urbanauten, the brains behind the beach.
There's a stage programme and a bar – everything's nice and laid-back, relaxed and chilled. In the evenings there's live music and Munich DJs, films or plays. In the daytime the children's programme turns it back into a family island – and the biggest sandpit in town.
