The capital of the German region of Bavaria offers a unique variety for visitors hungry for culture. From grand opera through musical to many stand up and vaudeville states, the Munich program can compare with the great metropolises of the world. Guests from all over the world come to the Munich opera festival to hear the famous singers and the Bayerisches Staatsorchester. We recommend booking tickets long in advance. Munich offers much more to offer to theatre lovers: the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz and the Prinzregententheater are not only interesting buildings, they always have very varied programs. Those who love classical and modern stage productions should visit the different theatres belong to the Bayerisches Staatsschauspiel. There is the Residenz Theater next to the Staatsoper at Max-Joseph-Platz, the Marstall and the Cuvilliés Theater. The Kammerspiele with their wonderful program are another cultural highlight of Munich.
