A well-deserved round of drinks after work at a rooftop bar, the down-to-earth atmosphere of a beer garden, a refreshing dip in the Isar. The people of Munich know how to properly celebrate a warm summer’s night. Summertime also is a great time for fans of the silver screen. And Munich has open-air cinemas for all cinematic tastes.
Cinema beneath a star-studded dome – Kino, Mond & Sterne
One of Munich’s most popular open-air cinemas is located not far from angelo by Vienna House Munich Westpark. Every evening during the summer months, the latest films flicker across the screen at the lakeside stage in Westpark. The stone steps of the amphitheatre offer outstanding views not only of the film, but also of beautiful Westsee lake. Take one of the rental bikes from the hotel and you’ll be there in just 9 minutes.

Art and culture – Viehhof-Kino
With its urban charm, the Viehhof-Kino is a unique specimen in the world of open-air cinema. Here movie lovers will enjoy a truly original cinematic evening among colourfully painted graffiti walls. The city’s old slaughterhouse district is also home to a beer garden as well as a cultural festival with live music and readings. And here’s a little secret worth knowing: This year will be the last year for the open-air cinema in Viehhof. A visit is well worth it!
