Originally an initiative of the Munich Philharmonic, the open day will also involve contributions from Gasteig GmbH, the Richard-Strauss Conservatory and the International Foundation for Culture and Civilization, among others. It will run from 9 am to 9 pm and admission is free. Further information can be found at or
