If you come to Oberhaching looking for fun informative museums or lots of medieval sightseeing you’re not going to find it. What you will find is a pint-sized town located just south of Munich.
Oh, all right, there’s a little more to it than that but, just don’t go expecting a bunch of fun little museums or lots of stuff leftover from medieval times.
The best thing about coming to Oberhaching is that you’re able to stay overnight in charming flowerbox-framed guesthouses close to the Bavarian capital. Places like the family run Harchinger Hof that provides clean affordable accommodation (buffet breakfast included) for a lot less than it would cost in the big city chic.
It’s also places like that where you’ll eat traditional rustic Bavarian cuisine like fried Bavarian Camembert (a yummy cheese dish) or its Leberkäse served with egg & French fries. Yeah, you might be able to get it in nearby Munich, but it might not be made with the same love. ;-)
Don’t scoff, this place was good enough for the Paraguay National Soccer team when they stayed here for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
In the warmer months the Hotel Weißbräu opens its quaint beer garden. I can’t think of any better way to end (ok, maybe start) a perfect day. Hey, this close to the Alps, you didn’t think it would be warm all year round?
So, maybe after a visit to the beer garden or visiting the centuries old (Romanesque) military church of St. Stefan you’d like to relax over at the Nature Bath Furth. Again, this is a warmer weather activity — open only from May thru September.
It doesn’t matter the season to enjoy Oberhaching’s cultural activities; they’re held indoors. So, grab a beer (ok, maybe wine — but this is Bavaria for crying out loud!) and enjoy a night of jazz, swing, classical music, or a literary evening.
Hmm, maybe there is more to Oberhaching than meets the eye?
