Munich 2022 awakes

You should mark 10 August 2022 in red in your calendar and underline it in bold. Because you have a set appointment with the official opening of the European Championships Munich 2022 at 18:30. And you certainly don't want to miss it, especially as - you read that right - admission is completely for free. You can expect a fantastic atmosphere in the entire Olympiapark and an overall audio-visual production that will make you want to see more. Here's to the biggest multi-sport event in Germany since the 1972 Olympic Games and thus to eleven days of top international sport and a carefree festival feeling. If your anticipation is not already awakened, it will be brought to life on this very evening at the latest.  

Musical wake-up call

Musical wake-up call

Among the numerous musical acts there are real top-class performers. Your ears are in for a real treat: Sportfreunde Stiller are back on the music scene and their new single "Spektakulär" ("Spectacular") perfectly sums up what you can expect at the opening and eleven days of European Championships. The Rostock rapper Marteria is one of the nation's most popular and influential solo artists and hits the nerve of the times with his music, while the Munich brass band Moop Mama lends the opening a mixture of urban sounds and local colour, and Marie Spaemann whisks you away to a magical world with her cello and a crossover of classical, pop and blues.
