Architecture Made Accessible: Munich’s Long Night of Architecture

January 7, 2019

Architecture Made Accessible

One night, 50 buildings and more than 30,000 visitors—the Long Night of Architecture will attract thousands of night owls and lovers of architecture to Munich again on January 18, 2019.

It is the fifth time that the Long Night of Architecture will be taking place in Munich. On Friday, January 18, 2019, historic and modern buildings will be open to architecture enthusiasts from 7 p.m. to midnight. The ADAC HQ, the OSRAM Tower and the Microsoft Deutschland HQ will again be among the properties to see, the city library Monacensia in Bogenhausen as well as the Steelcase Innovation Center in the old part of Munich will be making their debut. From the Olympic Tower to the listed tower of the former airport in Riem (now part of the headquarters of Brainlab AG) and the Palais an der Oper with its blend of the old building and elegant newly built sections, whether it is the Showpalast München or the Siemens Corporate Headquarters—there will be something to cater for all tastes. In all, 50 buildings will be hosting visitors.

On foot, by bus or train

There will be free shuttle buses for all visitors who do not want to use public transit. The seven different routes start right at Odeonsplatz. You can get on and off at the various stops along the way. Apart from that, tours through the city center of Munich will be offered, with and without a guide. Visitors can plan their night-time expedition on their own using an interactive map on the website. The Long Night of Architecture will be taking place as part of BAU, the World’s leading Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems.
