I know that many pages here on MyGermanCity.com talk a lot about shopping, sightseeing, history, culture, and everything in-between. But, there’s a demographic of you readers that we don’t talk much about. Who?
Yes, I said Golfers. So, in honor of you plaid pant, polo shirt, club carrying crowd Markt Indersdorf is for you!
Wait, though! If you’re not the golfing sort don’t click off to some other Upper Bavarian town just yet. Markt Indersdorf’s got you covered, too.
Now, whether you hit the links before or after you’ve done your sightseeing, it doesn’t matter too much. But, with a par-72 course that’s rated one of the top four in Germany you might want to get to it straight away (Golfpark Gut Häusern, that is)! Of course, if you don’t have time to do the entire 18-holes, there’s a shorter 6-hole course, too.
Markt Indersdorf’s course also has a Golf Academy and a Golf School for beginners. I can’t think of a more beautiful location than Upper Bavaria to learn how to whack the hell out of a ball. ;-)
I also can’t think of a better backdrop to enjoy a few festivals, either. About six weeks after Easter is Markt Indersdorf’s annual Folk Festival, the Autumn Festival in mid-September, and the the Market Festival on the 1st Sunday in August. This festival actually kicks off the day before with the Indersdorfer Run. It doesn’t matter if you actually run the race or just cheer from the sidelines — it’s great fun for the whole family.
Last but not least, before you go running off to one of the town’s beer gardens, go see the Kloster Indersdorf. This 12th century monastery has had quite a few uses throughout its 800-year history. It once housed displaced Jewish persons after the 2nd World War and is now a school. It’s church is so grand that it was dedicated to the Maria Ascension AND the saints Peter & Paul.
Though I don’t think they’ll let you play golf on the grounds, you wouldn’t want to break those gorgeous stained glass windows, would you? ;-)
