Concerts and live music
The big Tollwood New Year’s Eve party
The New Year’s Eve countdown at Tollwood begins many hours before midnight with the big New Year’s Eve party: live bands and DJs dance in various areas, bid farewell to the old year and celebrate the new one in high spirits. The traditional highlight, the midnight waltz, resounds in all the tents and across the outdoor area at the foot of the Bavaria at 0 o’clock. Cheers New Year!
Please note that bag checks will be carried out in the run-up to the New Year’s Eve party and fireworks may not be brought in. In order to speed up admission, we therefore ask all visitors to the New Year’s Eve party to refrain from bringing larger bags.
