The Ebersberg District offers a massive wooded area east of Munich, providing residents a ready escape from urban stress. Three separate forests — the Anzinger, the Ebersberger and the Eglhartinger — occupy up to 80 square kilometers of unincorporated land that define this much-valued holiday destination.
