The outskirts of Munich: where villages and the city, Hollywood and Bavarian sociability meet. Only a few stations away from Munich and you already have the feeling you’re sitting on a model railway which takes you through the lovingly designed, nearly surreal, beautiful landscapes. Experiences waiting to be filmed, secluded hiking paths, magnificent castles and idyllic Bavarian villages are all close together on the outskirts of Munich.
The reputation of the three beautiful Schleißheimer Castles echoed far and wide over the Bavarian peaks and summits to Hollywood. Paul W.S. Anderson made the famous Baroque buildings with its three castles the location for his film “The Three Musketeers”. And so film stars such as Milla Jovovich or Orlando Bloom also had a rendezvous in Schleißheim. The ensemble consists of the Old and the New Schleißheim Castle as well as the Lustheim Castle. The parks as well as the castles with their impressive collections are open to visitors.
Whoever wants to fly on the back of the good luck dragon, Fuchur, has to go to the Bavaria Filmstadt in Grünwald. The white dragon from the fantasy film is at home there.
A brewpub with a beer garden, where you can see the church with its onion-shaped Baroque steeple, a party barn and a maypole in the centre, the Brauereigasthof Aying has grown to be a village within a village over the last 620 years. The art of brewing, hospitality and real Bavarian village life: next to their own brewery, Sixthof, the local history museum and a beautiful wooden skittle alley are part of the antique ensemble in Aying. The young boys from the village still set up the wooden skittles by hand.
