Midsummer Night Scene

It seems as if it was only yesterday that we were braving the elements at winter Tollwood, wrapped up warm and sipping Glühwein, while browsing through the goodies on offer beneath colorful lanterns. But the time has already come for the summer festival, which despite a run of bad weather in past years is a much warmer affair. The festivities begin on June 18 and run through July 13. Whether you visit Tollwood to do a spot of exotic shopping, check out the live music or taste food from around the globe (or ideally all of the above), there is something for everyone at this cultural festival. And with so many choices of theater, dance and music performances, visitors will be entertained every minute of the day. Some of the musical highlights this year include performances by Arlo Guthrie, Kool & The Gang, Jimmy Cliff and The Beach Boys. Situated at Olympiapark Süd, Tollwood is open Mon.–Fri. 2 pm–1 am, Sat., Sun. and holidays 11 am–1 am (except Markt der Ideen which closes at 11:30 pm and the festival club which closes at 2 am). For more information, visit the web site, call (089) 38 38 50-0, or fax (089) 38 38 50-20. The Tollwood ticket hotline can be reached at 0700-38 38 50-24.
