It’s official: one of Munich’s most popular summertime culture events is returning for a three month stint along the Isar…. and you can head there as soon as tomorrow!
That’s right, time to dust off those flip flops and sunglasses – Munich’s Kulturstrand will be back with all its beachy vibes along the Isar starting tomorrow, Friday June 26.
According to an article just released by Muenchen.de here, the event will be relocating to the Corneliusbrücke this year, with an adapted concept involving anti-COVID measures such as social distancing and mask wearing.
What is the Kulturstrand?
According to the event’s official website, the Kulturstrand is “a place to meet and relax with a cultural program for all Munich residents.” Think of it as a place to enjoy beachy vibes (complete with soft sand, cold drinks, and live music!) right in the middle of the city.
The Official Kulturstrand 2020 Launch Event
According to a post on the Kulturstrand website here, final city approval is still pending for the official event kickoff tomorrow. Optimistically however, the program is set as follows:
- The space will open at 12pm (noon) at which point drinks will be available for purchase and consumption
- At 4pm, an opening speech will be delivered by Katrin Habenschaden (Kulturbürgermeisterin der LH München), Benoit Blasér (chairman of the Bezirksausschuss 2 Ludwigsvorstadt-Isarvorstadt), along with Kulturstrand organizers Ulrike Bührlen and Benjamin David.
- At 7:30pm, a mini-concert will take place, ft. “Das Ding ausm Sumpf” who will publicly present their new album
A full program for the summer is still to be announced, but stay tuned for more information to be released soon!
