What is Tollwood? The Tollwood Festival actually takes place in Munich twice a year, once in summer and once in winter. Tollwood is a private company that organizes festivals and activities that promote ecological and cultural themes. The Tollwood festivals have happened in Munich since 1988 and its keystone principals include tolerance, diversity and “culture for all.”

Through this established forum, the winter festivals incorporate many different activities including music, a world salon and a market of ideas within an international exhibition space.

Getting to Tollwood is not too difficult as it is located near the Theresienwiese in Munich and is accessible by multiple lines of public transport. Tickets are available online and to encourage the use of public transportation, your ticket can be used to access city trains.

More than 70 percent of the Tollwood festival is free. For more details on paid programming, check out the specifics on the website. Many of the music events require paid entry. Cultural events  include dance, theater and cabaret.

All the food at the festival is certified organic in accordance with the mission to support the environment. The Winter Festival begins Nov. 23 and goes through New Year’s Eve. In addition, this festival offers one of the most popular Christmas markets in the region, which takes place until Dec. 23.

Dream Hollywood Hotel

The urban chic hotel is the perfect medium between Hollywood hip and corporate cool. Dream Hollywood welcomes you upon arrival with an open glass entryway, showcasing a structured, organically lush lobby atmosphere filled with modern art and a lobby lounge bar that transforms for a morning cup of coffee or a post-work cocktail. Upon check-in with the extremely helpful and courteous staff, I made my way to the elevators and up to my room, enjoying the artwork on the way.
