Music and art
Music and art at a technical university really do exist! They are part of our everyday life at TUM.
Festivals: TUNIX, GARNIX und Co.
Each summer semester, over 150 volunteers spring into action for two major festivals: TUNIX at Munich’s Königsplatz and GARNIX at the Garching campus. The atmosphere is buzzing, young bands get a chance to perform, ice-cold beer is on top and the barbecues are sizzling. StuStaCulumis another legendary summer event. It takes place at the Studentenstadt – Germany’s largest halls of residence.
Legendary uni film club
Most weeks during term, the film club TU Filmscreens a new movie – showing everything from blockbusters through low-budget masterpieces to all-time classics. The historic Carl-von-Linde lecture theater is the venue. True to tradition, the club shows Die Feuerzangenbowle (The Punch Bowl) every year just before Christmas. This school-set German film from the 1940s has become a cult favorite with students.
