Munich Fetish Weekend cancelled
The measures to contain the corona virus have far-reaching consequences for events in the coming months. A return to normality, especially the unrestricted reopening of bars, clubs and restaurants, is not foreseeable at the moment. Therefore we are unfortunately forced to cancel Munich Fetish Weekend 2020.
The dress code is regulated individually for each event. Please inform yourself in advance and respect the respective dress code. Even if you are dressed according to the dress code, an organizer can make use of his domestic authority and refuse you admission. The organizers of the Munich Fetish Weekend have no influence on this.

Fetish in public
Munich is a liberal city with a lively gay scene. Especially in the Glockebach quarter you can stroll around in fetish clothes without problems. With our events we would like to contribute to the fact that the fetish scene is visible as an active part of the gay community. That's why we are happy if you come to the events during the day - e.g. the Gay City Tour - in fetish gear. Whenever you move in public in fetish clothes please consider that we want to stand up for our community with our face. Please renounce masks in public and cover your ass and your crown jewels.
Locations – This is where the action is
Almost all events take place in the Glockenbach quarter (Glockenbachviertel) around Müllerstraße. If you find accommodation nearby, you can reach almost all events by foot. You can reach the Glockenbach quarter via the subway stations Sendlinger Tor or Fraunhoferstraße. The tram stop is called Müllerstraße.
For events in other parts of the city, you can use public transport (MVG - see "Transport"). The Underground is the clubhouse of the MLC Munich. It is the only location outside Munich city centre, in Machtlfingerstr. 29, only a few meters away from the underground station Machtlfinger Straße.
Safety and security
Munich is a cosmopolitan and tolerant city and one of the safest cities in Europe. Homophobically motivated hostilities or attacks are very rare. Especially in the city centre and in the Glockenbach quarter around Müllerstraße you can wear leather, rubber or other fetish clothing on the streets without hesitation (see "Fetish in public"). If you have any questions, you can always contact the organizers of the Munich Fetish Weekend.
If you need help urgently, you can reach the police free of charge at 110. For the emergency services, dial 112.
If you have been the victim of discrimination, you can contact any police station. From Glockenbachviertel you can reach the police station 11, Hochbrückenstraße 7 in Munich the fastest. In addition, the gay culture and communication centre SUB offers help in emergency situations and supports those affected.
Transport - public transport, taxi & Co.
Car: Parking spaces are scarce and expensive in Munich. Find out more at your hotel, or use a cheap Park & Ride parking lot.
By plane: Munich Airport is located outside the city and is connected by train. The journey to the city centre takes about 40 minutes. You need the right airport ticket for the route, which you can buy at the airport, at all ticket machines or via MVG app. A convenient alternative is the Airport Express Bus, which you can book online in advance.
Public transport: Munich has an excellent public transport network with subways, suburban trains, buses and trams. So you can get through the city 24 hours a day. The network is operated by the Munich transport companys MVG and MVV. Reliable connection information can be obtained from the MVV website or the MVV mobile journey planner. For the journey you need a valid ticket, which you can buy at the ticket machines in the underground stations, in buses and in trams. You can also buy tickets easily with the MVG-App (German only). All MVG tickets are also valid in the MVV area and vice versa.
The subway does not run in Munich at night between 2 a.m. - 4 a.m. and is then replaced by tram night lines. During this time it is advisable to switch to taxis or services such as Uber or Clevershuttle.
Taxis, Uber & Co.: In the city center you can simply stop taxis on the street. You can also order taxis via the myTaxi app and pay directly via the app. Not all taxis accept card payment - ask before travel. Uber is available in Munich. The prices fluctuate strongly and are sometimes more expensive than taxis. A cheap alternative is Clevershuttle.
By train: From Munich main station, take the underground to Fraunhoferstraße or tram to Müllerstraße to get to the Glockenbachviertel. (see "Public transport")
