Tollwood Winter 2020

Dear Tollwood visitors,

Currently, our concept for the Tollwood Winter, which is to take place on the Theresienwiese from November 25 to December 23, has been submitted to the responsible authorities.

A decision on Christmas markets is to be made in autumn – depending on the development of the Corona pandemic.

We have designed a completely new format for the winter, but one which preserves the heart of Tollwood – art and culture, ecological commitment, organic gastronomy and a handicraft market – and at the same time makes the event safely feasible.

But a lot of things will be different this winter!
For example, Tollwood will completely do without tents and hold the event open air. We will set a maximum number of visitors, regulate the admission and record the contact details. There will be comprehensive corona hygiene safety measures throughout the entire grounds, from mandatory wearing of mouth-and-nose covers to compliance with the minimum distance.

We would like to tell you a little bit about the program:

Large format sculptures and installations, light walk acts and fire art will immerse the Theresienwiese grounds in an atmospheric setting. There will be an outdoor stage for music acts and a program for children. And of course, in best Tollwood manner, current ideas for a sustainable future and incitements to rethink are waiting for you, bundled in an artistically designed environmental action place under the open sky.

As usual, the Tollwood gastronomy will offer international culinary delights in organic quality, but the number of stands will be reduced to about 1/3 of the previous number in order to create enough open space to keep the distance. The same applies to the market stands.

Liebe Tollwood-Besucher*innen, ein sicheres Miteinander bleibt auch im Winter das Gebot der Stunde. Und doch soll es auf Tollwood Raum für Lebensfreude, Kulturgenuss und Momente der Verzauberung geben!

Dear Tollwood visitors, a safe cooperation remains the order of the day also in winter. And yet there should be room at Tollwood for joy of life, cultural enjoyment and moments of enchantment!

We sincerely hope to see you again in winter!


The New Year’s Eve events will pause in 2020. The Tollwood winter ends on 23 December. Further information will follow shortly.
