One of Munich’s most adorable annual dance parties will make its grand return this Sunday at the Chinese Tower and it’s a special one too – the event will be celebrating its 30th anniversary! The origins of the Kocherlball are simple: back in the 1800s, servants and workers would meet at dawn to dance and celebrate because they had no other free time during the day. The tradition was re-introduced in 1989 as an annual event, and now here we are about to go for another round. Click here for more details.
After dancing the morning away, be sure to stay around the English Garden for Japanfest, a free celebration of Japanese culture with plenty of live performances and fun activities to enjoy. Click here for more details on the full program.
