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.
