This area of Upper Bavaria is magical, bewitching, and downright enchanting. A place where the Alps tower above verdant valleys and the sky turns colors — no picture could ever do justice. Yes, it’s nice to be in Maisach.
Just don’t expect any grand hotels in Maisach. If you need to stay around here, the better hotels are located in the surrounding towns.
The draw here is the Upper Bavarian countryside (and beer). I can’t say it enough, there’s a reason Bavaria is the most visited region in Germany and places like Maisach are it. It’s no wonder that one of Maisach’s largest buildings is the brewery.
Many visitors and locals alike come to swim in nearby Olching to the Olchinger See, in addition to the town’s own outdoor swimming pool. Besides swimming, Olchinger See has a cheery little beer garden and a miniature golf course. For a good chuckle, try playing AFTER the visit to the beer garden.
If you prefer a real golf course, there’s an 18-hole course in the area, too.
Many of Maisach’s six local neighborhoods have been around since the early Middle Ages. Not too much remains of the time, although there are a few village churches found within each, respectively.
One thing remains from medieval times, the Faschingszug or Mardi Gras Carnival. Right before Ash Wednesday in February, Maisachers live it up and party down with deliciously cooked local food, beer, and jolly good cheer for everyone.
Yes, it’s good to be in Upper Bavaria and in Maisach in particular.
