Eichenau Is Bound To Book Up Fast

26 km or 16 miles west of Munich on the Lindau-Munich railway line is the tiny town of Eichenau.

Small is probably the best word for the place since there isn’t much sightseeing. Plus, it only has three small guesthouses for any of her overnight visitors.

Every summer in July at the Friesenhalle, Eichenau has a “Cultural Weekend” with bands playing and story time for the kids. It’s a good time for both the young and the not so young.

Also during the summer everyone heads out to the Badesee. In 1962 this man made lake was created out of an old gravel pit. Now it’s got a playground and a beach volleyball court; as well as many swimmer or sunbather.

After a day of all that activity, you’re bound to get hungry. Luckily, Eichenau has a variety of restaurants from local pubs, to pizzerias, and other international cuisines.

Sightseeing around Eichenau can be a bit tricky. The Hoflacher Chapel was built as a heavenly thank you from some duke back in 1422. Its artwork is simply divine, but it’s only open from 1pm to 5pm on the 1st Saturday of the month from May to October.

So, is the Chapel of St. George; that used to belong to a castle that once stood here. The chapel is a late 15th century architectural masterpiece and its artwork, too, is just heavenly. This chapel is open to the public from 3pm to 5pm on the 1st Sunday of the month from May to October.

At least the Pfefferminzmuseum is open EVERY Sunday (2pm-4pm) with exhibits on Bavarian agricultural life.

There aren’t any time limits on any of the many walking, hiking, and cycling paths that cross through Eichenau. Although, winter can be a bit cold around these parts; so they’re probably best enjoyed from April to October.

You just better book your accommodations early, with only three little inns they’re bound to book up fast!
