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...more
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...more
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...more
This is one of “mad” King Ludwig’s places - the Neuschwantstein chappie.The Bavarians are a bit touchy when it comes to the “mad” allegations, and suggest it was all disinformation put out by politicians of the time because it suited their needs. Well, I’m not here to pick sides on that one. I’ve seen the outside of Neuschwantstein castle/palace,...more

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...more
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...more
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! ;-)
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.
