Where to Cool Off in Munich

Summer in Munich is among the most atmospheric times to visit and while it’s unlikely to get too hot for sightseeing (average highs are around 24°C from June-August), locals waste no time in escaping the busy center when temperatures soar.

The most popular place to cool off in Munich is in one of the city’s famous beer gardens and there are so many to choose from (more than 200 if we’re counting!), you could spend your whole vacation hopping from bar to bar.

Munich’s Famous Olympiapark

Munich's famous Olympiapark

With its tent-inspired buildings, 80,000-capacity stadium and futuristic tower, Munich’s famous Olympiapark is one of the city’s most striking parks, laid out for the infamous 1972 Olympic Games.

Transformed into a public park after the games, Olympiapark now serves as a popular recreational area, as well as hosts a number of seasonal events, festivals and music concerts.
