Munich, May 9, 2024 – Get ready to celebrate the magical world of Harry Potter and experience the wonder and excitement of the wizarding world first hand! Harry Potter: The Exhibition opens today Thursday, May 9, 2024, at Kleine Olympiahalle in Munich! This interactive traveling exhibition is the most comprehensive ever presented about the extended world of Harry Potter.

The all-new behind-the-scenes exhibition celebrates iconic moments, characters, settings, and beasts from the films and stories of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts, as well as the expanded world of Harry Potter, including the costumes, props and imagery from the Tony® award-winning Broadway production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as seen in Hamburg at the MEHR! Theater. Guests can experience beautifully crafted environments that honor many of the unforgettable moments fans and audiences have loved for more than two decades, getting an up-close look at everything from original costumes to authentic props as they embark on a personalized journey through innovative, awe-inspiring, and magical environments using best-in-class immersive design and technology. Tickets are available at all known advance booking offices harrypotterexhibition.com, eventim.de and muenchenticket.de.

Tom Zaller, President and CEO Imagine Exhibitions: “We have something very special here in Munich and I am absolutely thrilled that people in Germany have the chance to experience this exhibition for the first time! Visitors will be able to see original props and costumes, enjoy some of their favorite scenes from the films, have their picture taken, and earn points for their Hogwarts house by participating in interactive activities in the different rooms. I highly recommend that everyone buy their tickets in advance for this incredible experience, as they are selling out fast!

Dieter Semmelmann, CEO Semmel Concerts GmbH: “We are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to present this one-of-a-kind exhibition here in Munich – it’s the German premiere! We couldn’t be happier to have partnered with Imagine Exhibitions and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment, who have been wonderful and trustworthy.”

Upon entry, everyone is given an exhibition wristband for a personalized experience using best-in-class immersive design and technology. From selecting a Hogwarts house (either Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin) to picking your wand and Patronus, visitors will be able to create their own uniquely magical moments while earning points for their house with each interactive activity. 

Throughout the exhibition, visitors will experience everything from the Portrait Hallway and the famed scenes of the Great Hall with floating candles, to exploring Hogwarts classrooms and tossing a Quaffle at the Quidditch pitch. Hagrid’s Hut featuring an oversized chair is perfect for photo opps, as is the “Cupboard Under the Stairs” from Harry’s childhood home on Privet Drive. In addition, vignettes from Fantastic Beasts and costumes from the Tony® award-winning Broadway production of Harry Potter and The Cursed Child are included in the exhibition, making Harry Potter: The Exhibition the most in-depth touring exhibition looking at the entire world and extended universe of Harry Potter, perfect for both longtime fans and those new to experiencing the magic. 

The record-breaking exhibition created and developed by Warner Bros. Discovery Global Themed Entertainment in partnership with Imagine Exhibitions and Eventim Live is conveniently located at Kleine Olympiahalle in Munich. Following its premiere in Philadelphia in 2022, more than 2 million visitors around the world have enjoyed this captivating exhibition. It is currently showing in New York City, Macao, and will open in São Paulo this August. 

From Page to Screen Gallery showcases a first edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone protected in a Gringotts inspired vault and is surrounded by inspirational video and literary quotes, reconnecting guests to the story as they are introduced to the exhibition.  

Hogwarts Castle Gallery features an immersive multimedia experience with iconic elements like the Whomping Willow, Dementors, and the Marauder’s Map, where guests will see their name appear, prompting them to continue their exploration of the exhibition.  

The Great Hall Gallery is a space that allows visitors to celebrate magical seasonal moments in its iconic architecture.  

The Hogwarts Houses Gallery sets the foundation for the exhibition experience, allowing guests the opportunity to experience more personalized moments with the Hogwarts house they select during their preregistration. While guests may gravitate towards one house, this gallery will enable visitors to experience all of the Hogwarts houses in a celebratory hall featuring an iconic Sorting Hat, perfect for photo ops, while surrounded by freshly designed house crests on meticulously created stained glass windows.  

Hogwarts Classrooms Galleries are filled with iconic props, creatures, and costumes. Visitors will interact with magical lessons and games through digital touchscreens to reveal behind-the-scenes secrets about iconic classroom moments. They will brew potions in the Potions Classroom, predict the future in Divination, pot a mandrake in the Herbology Greenhouse, and use their digital wand to defeat a boggart in Defense Against the Dark Arts.  

Hagrid’s Hut and The Forbidden Forest offer an interactive Patronus charm experience. Guests will then uncover iconic creatures, such as centaurs and Acromantula, hidden in the forest and explore inside a recreation of Hagrid’s Hut.  

An exclusive collection of Harry Potter: The Exhibition merchandise will be available in the onsite retail shop for guests to celebrate their fandom.
