2018 is disappearing fast, 2019 is eager to take over – and Munich simply can’t wait to stage its New Year’s Eve celebrations. So where's the perfect place to see out the old and bring in the new? We have selected Munich’s top New Year’s Eve locations for you: from hip and stylish to refined and exclusive.
Party wave! Munich’s Praterinsel rises from amid the waters of the river Isar. The lovingly restored building that once housed a schnapps distillery provides the perfect setting in which to see in the New Year in style. There are three indoor dance floors and colorfully illuminated outdoor areas. The admission price includes the full program – complete with all drinks and a fingerfood buffet.
Start (depending on ticket category): 8.30 pm, 9 pm or 10 pm
Colorfully illuminated tent roofs, international culinary delights and a highly diverse cultural program: the winter version of the Tollwood Festival has become a well-established hotspot to visit during the cold season. It hosts a huge party at New Year’s Eve which covers the entire Tollwood site. There are five dance areas and a big gala in the “Grand Chapiteau” tent. When the clock strikes twelve, the traditional midnight waltz is played in all the tents.
From 7 pm
Hilton Munich Park
A heavenly way to bring in the New Year: at the Hilton Munich Park you can enjoy a New Year’s Eve party high above the rooftops of Munich. There's a live band to a great party atmosphere on the dance floor. After the opulent gala buffet in the Salon Marco Polo, everyone heads outside onto the rooftop terrace for a highly exclusive view of the fireworks.
Buffet: EUR 209.– per guest (children under 6 free of charge, children under 12 pay half)
“A Night of Uplifting Club Sounds” Munich’s legendary culture and party temple offers three areas featuring electro-pop, global beats and indie sounds – for pure excess heading into the New Year.

Concert and party: Admission 9 pm, start 10 pm, admission EUR 18.– (advance sale)
Party only: Start 11 pm, EUR 15.– (advance sale)

Yes it’s a party!” At the turntables: the Fra Diavolo DJ team aka Totze & Teute of the Beatsteaks.
From 12.30 am (dinner and buffet are fully booked), admission EUR 15.–
