When first coming across the Upper Bavarian town of Seefeld, I thought there really isn’t too much to do. I was so wrong. Ugh, I hate when that happens. ;-)
First off, Seefeld is located along Lake Pilsen (also known as the Pilsensee). A nice lakeside location is always nice, don’t you think? See, no need to run off to the nearby Ammersee or Lake Starnberg — especially if you’re in the mood to camp out. Camping by the lake, how romantic.
I wonder how they people made out before everyone grew accustomed to such a thing?

Hmm, the Archaeological Park that details what life was like in the 7th century would be a good place to find out. Guess it’s out of the question to ask the guys buried in the nearby Meriovingian graves.
The Gräflich Toerrin’sche Schloss didn’t have indoor plumbing when it was built in the 13th century. Come to think of it, they didn’t have it when the castle was converted into a Baroque design.
Another place to see is the Church of Sts. Peter & Paul; and while you’re looking at Baroque & neo-Gothic building — there’s been a church on this spot for over 1200 years.
This isn’t the only church in Seefeld, St. Michael’s has been around since the 1300s, but St. Martin’s is a newcomer which you can tell because it’s done in a Rococo design.
As great as all these things are, the festivals and events held in Seefeld are really what gives the town its flavor. Even if you don’t speak German, why not enjoy one of the town’s lectures, book readings, wine events, or Baroque music concerts — you get a true sense of community this way, yes?
The community comes together in other ways, like the Craft Market and the Advent Market (both in November); or the cabaret and theater evenings. If it’s a murder mystery — the butler did it. ;-)
