Munich offers more than the opportunity to down suds by the gallon. Friday through Sunday, experience Open Art, a weekend in which some 65 galleries, museums and institutes offer free entry.

The event kicks off what is considered to be the start of a new year of art following summer closures and serves as a showcase for modern and contemporary art collections.

Hours are 6-9 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Plot your course in advance by visiting (in German), which offers links to participating venues.
