Who you will meet: Families from the Sendling neighbourhood and the whole of Munich celebrate together.

Why you should go: The Magdalenenfest party in the Hirschgarten park is something of an insider tip in terms of folk festivals. Market traders present their wares across many stalls, offering everything from saucepans to dirndls, the traditional dress worn in Bavaria. Bumper cars, boat swings, and bungee trampolines get children truly excited.

Who you will meet: This traditional festival offers plenty for both little ones and adults.
