Munich New Years Eve 2012 Fireworks Live Stream, Parties, Events Feed

Silvester or New years Eve in Munich is a major event, with locals and visitors alike heading out to enjoy the street parties and watch the amazing firework displays across the city.

This live feed is in Munich for the New Years Eve celebrations

Event Information:
Popular locations to watch the fireworks include Englischer Garten, close to the Monopteros, the Bayerischer Hof and Tollwood. Many Munich residents gather around the Friedensengel peace angel to get a unique view from the hill looking down on Prinzregentenstrasse. The spot's popularity, however, can often mean overwhelming crowds. From the top of Olympiaberg, spectators will not miss a single firecracker with a wide panoramic view.

Another good reason to spend New Year in Munich is the Tollwood New Year's Eve Party on the Theresienwiese. A whole host of DJs and live bands accompany the traditional midnight waltzing. The Olympic Park is also very popular on New Year's Eve. The Marienplatz in Munich is still the heart of the fireworks- and party-lovers who want to celebrate in central Munich’s old town. Only a few places in Munich let you be “closer” to the fireworks.

At the centre of the city is the Marienplatz, a large open square named after the Mariensäule, a Marian column in its centre, with the Old and the New Town Hall. Its tower contains the Rathaus-Glockenspiel. Three gates of the demolished medieval fortification have survived to this day, the Isartor in the east, the Sendlinger Tor in the south and the Karlstor in the west of the inner city. The Karlstor leads up to the Stachus, a grand square dominated by the Justizpalast (Palace of Justice) and a fountain.
