St. Patrick's Day

more than a year ago
What started in 1996 as a party by a small rabble of Irish expats, now has turned into a huge party and parade of 15,000 participants and spectators.

St. Patricks Day in Munich is one of the biggest parades in Europe. Nowadays, it is celebrated over the three-day weekend preceding the official holiday on March 17.

Every Irish bar in town will be crammed with people downing Guinness. Major events this year include:
