The people of Munich love the outdoors, which is very apparent during the warm summer months when virtually everything is enjoyed outside.
One of my favorite summer activities is going to see a movie at one of the open air movie theaters, which themselves appear as if they should be in a movie. It’s a great place to take a date – or a romantic place to be surprised with one.
People curl up in blankets on the lawn (€ 6), or in the comfortable lounge chairs (€ 10) for a few Euros extra, to enjoy watching recent blockbuster hits. Provided the weather cooperates, each evening there is a showing of something new. If it’s a 3D movie, glasses cost € 2.
Similar to the biergarten concept you can even bring your very own picnic minus the drinks, as they must be purchased on the grounds. There are also food options available – typically curry wurst, french fries, and of course the more traditional movie snacks – popcorn and candy.
By booking online you are able to choose your seats, so you don’t have to arrive early to get a good one in the center.
Blankets can be rented, but don’t forget bug repellant – there can be many mosquitoes due to the nearby lake.
Gates open at 20:00.
All movies are in German unless noted (OV=original version, OmU= original version with German subtitles).
