Neuried (Munich) — A Simple Upper Bavarian Town

Upper Bavaria’s Neuried couldn’t be any better located, right next to the city of Munich along its southwest border. However, that seems to have worked against it in this case.

No, there’s nothing wrong with Neuried; it’s just that there’s not a lot of stuff to do within it. I guess being this close to Munich, you could always just hop on the next bus or train to the big city.

I will say this though, because of Neuried’s geographical location in Upper Bavaria makes it quite easy to get to the Alps. You know, just in case you want to follow along scenic routes, go skiing, or something like that.

And, as this is Upper Bavaria, you know you’ll always have a good time just bicycling or hiking around Neuried and its environs. It’s life’s simple pleasures that give you most enjoyment, isn’t it? ;-)

It won’t take too long to bike your way around Neuried either; the town isn’t even ten square kilometers.

I guess I’m not being fair to Neuried. It does have some pretty 19th century farmhouses, located at Gautinger Straße 11, 15, and 26. Right up the street at Gautinger Straße 9 is the Catholic Church of St. Nicholas, a Gothic style church that was built in 1484.

Also within Neuried is a stone obelisk called the Preysing Monument, erected here in 1735. I would suggest visiting the town’s Rathaus (Town Hall) that was built around 1912, located at Planegger Straße 2.

It’s not all old building or centuries old monuments, there’s a brand new recreational center here. It’s got a football (a.k.a. soccer) field, a smaller version of a football field, and even a restaurant for when you’ve worked up a hearty appetite.

So, how do you get to this little slice of daily German life? Easy, take the A95 Munich-Garmish Autobahn; or the Metro Line Bus #3; or the S-Bahn 6 Railway; or on the 260, 261, 267, or 936 bus routes.

Sounds pretty simple to be able to enjoy a simple Upper Bavarian town, don’t you agree?
