Don’t want to see Munich like any other ordinary tourist? Sick of sitting in crowded sight-seeing busses that are constantly stuck in traffic? Want to tell your friends at home about a truly unique way of experiencing Munich?
Then join one of the biggest skate-events in the world!
The Blade Night closes down particular streets to conventional traffic and opens pre-selected routes to up to 10,000 inline skaters, quad skaters and skateboarders. Each Monday at 7 p.m. you can meet fellow skaters at our starting point in front of the German Transport Museum at Theresienhöhe 15 (the nearby subway station ‘Schwanthalerhöhe’ is just two stops from ‘Central Station’ with U4/5).
The tour starts at 9 p.m. and usually takes around 90 minutes (each route is approximately 10 miles/15 km long). After returning to the starting point, there will be an opportunity to share your experience with your fellow skaters at a small get-together.
The Blade Night is free of charge; nevertheless, we appreciate your support. At the starting point you can thus acquire an Blade Night starter ribbon, which costs only 2€ and gets you a 10% discount at the adjacent restaurant Wirtshaus am Bavariapark. If you don’t happen to have your skates and/or safety gear with you, you can borrow equipment (inline skates, helmets, protection) at the K2 stall (free of charge for all ribbon-holders). Make sure to be there on time, since we only have a limited amount of equipment.
The Blade Night stands for alternative ways of experiencing the city. By combining a fun activity that is not only good for your body but also great for the environment, the Blade Night actively participates in the process of improving Munich’s quality of living.
With almost 2 million participants since its launch in 1999 (that’s more than the total of Munich’s inhabitants), the Blade Night has become a staple in the Bavarian capital and beyond.
Due to security issues the Blade Night has to be cancelled in case of bad weather (updates are posted on this website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter). Unfortunately, you are not allowed to participate on motorized vehicles, bikes, segueways, etc. Be aware that the Blade Night is not intended for beginners. Alcohol is not permitted during the tour.
