Right in the centre and all around

The Roofs is a festival of diversity and surprise accompanying the European Championships with a mix of music, culture, art, food and much more. Every Roof offers a unique experience - each with its own character and charm. Immerse yourself, enjoy, create memories. Not only in Munich, but also at the other venues of the European Championships - for an unforgettable and holistic event experience.

The entire programme is free!



The concept of pop-up experiences is creating a novelty setup and setting the stage – literally and figuratively – for the unexpected. The traditional event setup with the bundling of theme-specific contents in the same area is rearranged for The Roofs. 

Individually themed worlds will be created and spread across the entire Olympiapark, the Königsplatz and the Olympic Regatta Centre Munich – each with its own character in terms of content and design.




In addition to Olympiapark at the heart of the festival, visitors can look forward to further lively Roofs. The Multicolour Roof at Königsplatz truly lives up to its name.



Fun in the sun! With a beach bar, refreshing drinks and trendy sports, you'll feel like you're on holidays. So put on your sunglasses and kick up your feet!


Festival flair is also on offer at the road cycling venues outside of Munich. Fans can expect and enjoy a unique combination of sporting spectacle and diverse supporting programme.

The programme is a tribute to 50 years of Munich Olympiapark and symbolises the variety of this unique location, its history, present, and future. The individual roofs – differing in size – convey a small-town charm rather than giantism and focus on uniqueness rather than uniformity.  

More to come. More to experience. 

Unexpected & special

Unexpected & special

The park will be turning into the summer's place to be, with plenty an offer for young and old alike, for him, her, them, and us.

Greatness in a cosy setting, The Roofs is not presenting itself as a festival of superlatives, but rather a special place of experience and adventure for both visitors and participants. 



Art is the daughter of freedom, as Friedrich Schiller already acknowledged. The Roofs provides art with space to develop and reflects the range of creativity. Fine arts, rhetoric, crafts, and design present themselves in full grandeur.
