Those figures boded pretty well for a successful event and the Paddy’s Day Parade became a permanent fixture on the Munich calendar.
These days more than 50 groups take part and you can see mobs of ‘Highlanders’, ‘Leprechauns’ and rugby players among the tumut of the parade..

Munich’s St Patrick’s Day party always takes place the Sunday before the Paddy’s official ‘death day’, March 17.
But on March 17, sites around the city including the Olympic Tower, BMW Welt and the Hofbräuhaus are all lit up bright emerald as part of a worldwide ‘global greening’ event that’s really taken off over the past couple of years.
