21.08.2023 - Olympiapark München GmbH

It was a successful comeback: the 2023 Summer Festival in the Olympic Park counted around 350,000 visitors from 27 July to 20 August.

Munich residents and tourists from all over the world really celebrated the return of the traditional Olympic Park event. Even the changeable and often rainy weather didn't stop them from making the most of the varied holiday programme and having a good time with their families and friends in the Olympic Park. The concept of combining well-known and much-loved summer festival attractions with completely new offers was a success.

Especially for families spending the summer in the city, the 25-day event, which took place again this year after a three-year break, offered many varied experiences. In addition to the summer festival classics such as the rides organised by Munich's showmen, the street of stalls and the food stands, a number of new attractions proved very popular: For example, the four themed weekends were very well received, the Lilalu-Kinderland and the LEGO® DREAMZzz™ Camp were very popular with the little ones, the night flea market in the Olympic Stadium was in demand and a colourful fireworks display lit up the sky above the Olympic Park - the Summer Festival programme was more colourful and varied than ever before.

The Theatron MusikSommer, which took place at the same time, also counted over 22,000 visitors. Well-known national and international bands have already performed at this festival on the stage at the Olympic Lake, and for some of them the performance was the springboard for a great career. And in 2023, visitors were once again treated to an attractive programme of music from a variety of genres, with young artists from Munich and Bavaria in particular.
