Open daily from 10 a.m. to midnight
The DANCE festival center at Speiserei, Müller'sches Volksbad, invites everyone to spend some time every day there in an Art Nouveau atmosphere. Here artists, doers, and visitors will come together to eat, discuss, and amuse themselves.
Whoever is looking for a little relief from the festival hustle and bustle can relax at Müller'sches Volksbad. One of the most beautiful bathhouses in Europe, the traditional municipal bathhouse offers opportunities to swim or visit the saunas. The Roman-Irish sweat bath with an open-air courtyard is especially popular, and the spectrum of massages is guaranteed to provide relief for stressed-out festival visitors. For those who are active in sports, there are also courses offered in the swimming pool – for example, the Aqua Fitness course.

The art area in the city quarter called Maxvorstadt has numerous museums, exhibition spaces, and galleries with very different collections and focal points. Three major museums, the "Pinakotheken", feature works from the old masters to contemporary art, and architecture, design, and American contemporary art can be found in the Brandhorst Collection at Museum Brandhorst. And the best thing is: on Sundays the admission fee to each of the museums in this art area costs only 1 euro! (www.kunstareal.de).
Right inside the Gasteig Cultural Center there is the recommendable restaurant Gast. And right across from the Gasteig Cultural Center is every pizza lover's dream, Pizzesco: pizzas one meter long (for those that are not so hungry there are also 10-centimeter long pieces), made to order and topped with the finest ingredients. In order to continue with the international experience, it pays to visit the Brazilian bar and restaurant Ver o peso (across from the restaurant Gast).
After or before events at Muffatwerk, hungry festival visitors and guests can visit Café der Muffathalle and fortify themselves there with a snack.
Whoever is looking for typical Bavarian cuisine should go to the restaurant Zum Franziskaner, which is located across from Residenztheater. The specialty of the house: Weisswürst sausages, famous far beyond the borders of Germany, served with Franziskaner mustard and rounded off with one of the restaurant's own special beer types.
When the weather is nice it's recommended to enjoy an aperitif or an "Après Spectacle" on the Klenze-Loggia terrace at KUFFLER Restaurant, Bar & Grill with the best view of Nationaltheater, the state opera house, and the Munich Residence, formerly the seat of government and residence of Bavarian royalty.
At Kreativquartier, across from Schwere Reiter, the restaurant Import Export Kantine offers daily lunch specials, and later on during the day and the evening a small selection of standard dishes, including a moderate selection of vegan dishes (opening hours: Tuesday to Friday starting at 12 p.m.; Saturday starting at 4 p.m.; closed Mondays and Sundays).
