Murnau am Staffelsee Things to Do

  • Murnauer Moos

    The landscape around the town has 3 main features. The Alps, obviously. The green, rolling farmland with woods. Thirdly, the totally flat marsh area. The Moos. It is a left over from the last ice age.They have turned it into a protected area, but it contains tracks for walking, cycling and horse riding. Nice in itself, but also with great views of...

  • Mini golf

    Returning to town after a trip on the lake we passed a mini golf course, many years since our last game so, had to be done.Looks like mini golf in Germany is pretty popular and a very difficult (for us anyway) game. Needless to say Bonio triumphed by 5 & 4 with a guest appearance by Mrs B's walking stick!Celebrated with a beer outside the clubhouse...

  • Town centre

    All very pretty and great to wander around with many options for food and drink should the weather turn wet! Loved our few days here.

  • Schloßmuseum

    Museum in the castle,some interesting history of the town and the works of notable residents on show here. Learned of work by Gabriele Münter and particularly interested by the section on Ödön von Horváth.An interesting visit.

  • Boat around the lake

    Short walk from the town centre to the Staffelsee, a pretty large lake with the Alps visible not too far away. Regular boat service in summer, see website for details.Managed two trips here, firstly a trip around the whole lake then a short walk to the next stop from Murnau, lunch in a lovely beer garden and then home on the boat - fantastic!Loved...

  • Kloster Ettal

    This is a Benedictine monastery dating back to the 1300s. As with so many such places in Germany & Belgium, the monks brew beer.You can buy some in the abbey shop, in the hotel/restaurant across the street, or indeed in the supermarket in Murnau. I did the latter. It’s excellent, but after almost 700 years you’d expect them to be good at it.They...

Murnau am Staffelsee Restaurants

  • loved it!

    We (a group of 5) had a super lunch here. It’s a little outside the town centre, but worth the effort. Lovely views help.I had wonderful cream of garlic followed by an enormous pizza. A 0.5l of Helles (Löwenbräu) to wash it down.Quick, professional service. I wasn’t paying, so can’t comment on prices - but on the menu they looked fine.It is a...

  • Brewery restaurant

    This brewery has a hotel too and we were staying so guaranteed to spend time here!Three options I think, a smart restaurant, a beerhall and a beergarden. Wet weather meant no chance of the latter, visited the other two of course.An evening meal in the restaurant, it's very popular and lucky to find a table, food excellent for both of us with some...

  • Great sushi

    Title says it, impressive sushi here for us. Many other Asian specialities on the huge menu.All at a good price in a comfortable restaurant, enjoyed our short visit.

  • Beer Compliments the Food

    I've been living in Germany for eight months now and this restaurant offered several meals we had never tried before. Maybe it was because we live in Central Germany and we just haven't spent enough time down south. Anyway, the food was excellent and the beers they brew complimented our meals quiet nicely. If you are down there in the winter I...

  • perfect?

    This is the hotel across the street from the monastery at Ettal, and we had lunch in the Biergarten after our visit. Warm sunshine over lunch. Ideal.It was great! I had veal escalopes with chanterelles in a cream sauce, served with pasta. The others‘ dishes looked wonderful too. Being the driver I skipped on the beer, which was a bit sad. Next...

  • Great!

    A recommendation from Sigrid - a resident in the town. A wonderful choice, and we ate there twice in 4 days. It’s a hotel and brewery, as well as the restaurant. They offer brewery tours and beer education seminars. The restaurant feels like a Biergarten, but it’s inside as well as in the courtyard. Certainly it’s Biergarten style food. And you get...

  • Griesbrauei: Large Beerhaus

    by paulmacn Updated Sep 5, 2002

    Large pub and brewery with those long wooden tables that make it impossible to stay alone. Food is also served there. The beer is brewed by the pub themselves. Cheap beer.

    Dress Code: Lederhosen is acceptable. Go on, I dare ya! ;-)

Murnau am Staffelsee Transportation

  • Train

    by paulmacn Written Sep 5, 2002

    Trains come and go every hour to Munich. The journey takes just under an hour to the Hautpbanhof. The only problem is that the fare is expensive unless you have some sort of discount card. 20 Euro return in August 2002. Ouch!
    If you are under 26 you can get a Bavaria card for 30 Euro for unlimited travel for August and half of September through the whole of Bavaria.
