The following is the event program for 2020. Stay tuned for the 2021 program.
This year, the Munich Gay Pride (CSD München) will take place on Saturday, July 13. The demonstration is led by the Mayor, and starts and ends in a street festival in Marienplatz - Munich's historic central square. The parade kicks off at 12pm, so be sure to arrive on time to avoid missing out!
Later in the evening, the neo-gothic Munich City Hall opens its doors and is transformed into an enormous party location for pride enthusiasts.
