Most theatres close at the start of the summer holidays (end of July). The new season usually begins at the end of September.

  1. Bayerische Staatsoper

    Built in 1811, the neo-Classical national theatre was reconstructed (1823–5) after a fire. It grew into one of the most important music stages, and premieres of Wagner operas were held here in the presence of Ludwig II. Closed for many years after the end of World War II, the theatre re-opened in 1963. Noted for its impressive repertoire, the theatre boasts an auditorium with five balconies resplendent in royal gold and purple.

  2. Bayerisches Staatsschauspiel

    In 1951, the Neues Residenztheater opened its doors next to the Opera House. Stark on the outside, the interior is lavish and monumental thanks to refurbishment in 1988–91. Artistic director Dieter Dorn presents a wide range of dramatic works. The Theater im Haus der Kunst is also part of the Bayerische Schauspielhaus.

  3. Cuvilliés-Theater

    Time seems to have stood still in this breathtakingly beautiful Rococo theatre. Furnishings and decor were packed away in crates for safe storage during World War II. After the original building was destroyed by bombing, the theatre was rebuilt, reopening in 1958. It is a stage for performances by the Bayerische Staatstheater .

  4. Münchner Kammerspiele

    Built by Richard Riemerschmid in 1901 and now restored, this theatre became the home of the Münchner Kammerspiele in 1926. Inside, Art Nouveau rules, with intertwining ornamentation and dozens of lighting fixtures in the shape of flower buds. During the 1920s, the Kammerspiele was considered the most important stage outside Berlin and caused quite a stir staging works by Bertolt Brecht and others. Even today, you are sure to be treated to innovative theatre.

  5. Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz

    Lovers of traditionally staged operas, operettas, and musicals will feel right at home in this intimate theatre. Built in 1865 as a bourgeois equivalent to the royal theatre houses, it has remained a popular venue to this day.

  6. Gasteig

    An unwieldy brick structure on the outside, this theatre is a venue for more than 1,700 events per year – from concerts by the Munich Philharmonic to a film festival. Seating 2,500, the Philharmonie has excellent acoustics. This large hall is complemented by other smaller auditoriums.

  7. Herkulessaal

    Perfect for classical concerts, this vast hall in the Residenz, with over 1,200 seats, is popular with the Bayerischen Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra, the Münchner Symphoniker, and the Münchner Kammerorchester, which stage sell-out concerts here.

  8. Prinzregententheater

    Built in 1901 as a Wagner festival theatre, the space, conceived as an amphitheatre, is chiefly used as a performance venue for the Bayerische Theaterakademie August Everding.

  9. Münchner Volkstheater

    What you experience here is by no means simple folk theatre but a sophisticated repertory of entertaining, popular plays.

  10. Deutsches Theater

    This large theatre is the city’s main venue for international stars and musicals. During Fasching (carnival), it is transformed into a glittering ballroom.
