Seefeld village Overview
The village of Seefeld, though off the typical tourist path, is surprisingly a pleasant option for those who have seen all of the main tourist sites in nearby Munich. As a tour guide, I would not recommend it to everyone; however, for what I would call "advanced tourists" I think it is a good option.
The main attraction in Seefeld is the Schloss (palace). The Schloss dates from the 14th century. It was originally a castle (burg), but in the 17th and 18th centuries it became the palace we see there today. Inside the courtyard of the Schloss are a beer garden, a cinema, and several small shops. In the Schloss itself, however, is part of Munich’s Egyptian museum. If you can read German, this is a very nice museum that very few tourists get to see.
Seefeld is located on the Pilsensee, which is a lake south west of Munich. The easiest way to get there from Munich is to take the S5 suburban train to the Seefeld/Hechendorf stop. From the train station, the Schloss is in sight, and is approximately a 10 minute walk across a small valley.
