The DANCE Festival Center
Café and restaurant at Müller'schen Volksbad
Open daily from 10:00 a.m. to midnight
The DANCE festival center at the café and restaurant inside Müller'schen Volksbad invites you to spend some time there in an Art Nouveau atmosphere. Artists, movers and shakers, and visitors will come together here to dine, discuss, and have fun.
Whoever wants to regenerate a little after the hustle and bustle of the festival can relax at Mueller'schen Volksbad: One of Europe's most beautiful public bathhouses and with a history rich in tradition, it features swimming pools and saunas. The Roman-Irish sweat bath with an open-air courtyard is especially popular, and the range of massages offered in the spa area are guaranteed to provide relaxation for visitors to the festival. Visitors looking for exercise can take advantage of the courses offered in the swimming pool, for example, the aqua fitness Course.

The Kunstareal ("Art Area") in the Maxvorstadt quarter of Munich is home to numerous museums and exhibition spaces with very different collections and core areas. There are three art museums, the so-called "Pinakotheken," with works from Old Masters to contemporary art, and architecture, design, and American contemporary art are in the collection at Museum Brandhorst. And the best thing is: On Sundays the admission fee to the museums in the Kunstareal is only 1 euro! (www.kunstareal.de)
Dining close to the performance venues
Inside the Gasteig Cultural Center there is the restaurant Gast, which is highly recommended. Directly across from the Cultural Center is a dream restaurant for everyone who loves pizza, the restaurant Pizzesco, where customers choose from the finest ingredients for their toppings and order pizza by the meter (customers who are not very hungry can also order 10-centimeter long slices of pizza). For another international dining experience, pay a visit to the Brazilian bar and restaurant Ver-o-peso (across the street from the Gasteig Cultural Center).
Hungry festival visitors can visit the café inside Muffathalle and refresh themselves with a snack before or after events at Muffatwerk.
The restaurant Conviva at "Blaues Haus" at the theater Münchner Kammerspiele offers internationally and regionally flavored dishes, and it can also be easily reached from the venue Residenztheater.
Whoever is looking for typical Bavarian cuisine should visit the restaurant Zum Franziskaner across from Residenztheater. The restaurant's specialty: "weisswurst" ("white sausage") and Franziskaner's house brand of mustard, famous far beyond the borders of Bavaria, rounded off with a choice of the different types of beer from Franziskaner's own brewery.
If the weather is nice it's recommended to enjoy an aperitif or an after-show drink on the Klenze loggia at KUFFLER Restaurant, Bar & Grill with the best view of Nationaltheater and the former royal residence in the city, the Residenz.
In the "creative quarter" and across from the performance venue Schwere Reiter, the Import Export Kantine offers a lunch menu, and later on during the day and evening they have a small selection of standard dishes, including a moderate selection of vegan dishes (open Tuesday – Friday starting at noon ; Saturday starting at 4:00 p.m.; closed Mondays and Sundays).
