It looks as if the beginning of August is going to bring real summer weather to the Bavarian capital, muenchen.de, the City of Munich’s official website, writes today, August 1, 2016. Lots of sunshine and pleasant temperatures are forecasted for the first week of the month. The hottest day of the week is expected to be this Thursday.
As the city is trying to get back to normal, following the events in Munich and Bavaria in July, many postponed events are set to begin this week, such as the Theatron festival. There are also many other possibilities of spending a nice summer day in Munich. You can find some of them here. Additionally, if you’re into inline skating or skateboarding, tonight is Blade Night in Munich, as every Monday throughout the summer.
The AOK Blade Night closes down particular streets to conventional traffic and opens pre-selected routes to up to 10,000 inline skaters, quad skaters and skateboarders. Each Monday at 7 p.m. you can meet fellow skaters at our starting point in front of the German Transport Museum at Theresienhöhe 15 (the nearby subway station ‘Schwanthalerhöhe’ is just two stops from ‘Central Station’ with U4/5).
The tour starts at 9 p.m. and usually takes around 90 minutes (each route is approximately 10 miles/15 km long). After returning to the starting point, there will be an opportunity to share your experience with your fellow skaters at a small get-together. The AOK Blade Night is free of charge; nevertheless, they appreciate your support. At the starting point you can thus acquire an AOK Blade Night starter ribbon, which costs only 2€ and gets you a 10% discount at the adjacent restaurant Wirtshaus am Bavariapark (does not apply for the self-service part). If you don’t happen to have your skates and/or safety gear with you, you can borrow equipment (inline skates, helmets, protection) at the K2 stall (free of charge for all ribbon-holders). Make sure to be there on time, since the equipment is limited.
