Golf in Munich
Munich offers quite a variety for tourists. From lakes, parks and beer gardens to museums, historical sites and massive stores, there's something for everyone who visits Munich. Combining a visit to this Bavarian capital with some golf is all you need. Make sure to visit the main highlights of Munich like the Old City (Altstadt), Nymphenburg Palace, the Marienplatz which is the world-famous centre of Munich, BMW Welt or visit Bayern München at the Allianz Arena and combine it with a round of golf on courses around Munich.
Getting to Munich is quite easy by plane, car or train. Opened in 1992, Munich International Airport is Germany's second busiest airport and it has been rated as one of the best in the world. It is located 28 km (17 miles) northeast of the city centre. Getting to the centre is easy by S-Bahn (train) or by Airport bus. This bus takes passengers from both terminals of Munich Airport to the Hauptbahnhof in 45 minutes.
Golf clubs close to the city centre of Munich mainly consist of 9 hole golf courses. Golfclub München-Riem is located closest to the city centre. The course itself lies in the middle of a (horse) race track, which is pretty special. Quite some good golf courses are located northwest of Munich, like both golf courses of Münchner Golf Eschenried, Golf-Club Olching and Golf Club Rottback. In the southwest - just north of the Starnberger See - you'll find more high-quality golf courses like Golf Club Starnberg, Golf Club Feldafing, Golfanlage Gut Rieden and Golf Club Wörthsee.
Munich lies 500 meters (1,600 feet) above sea level and the climate is continental, with cold and snowy winters and mild to pleasantly warm summers. Munich can be subject to the Föhn, a warm and dry wind that descends from the Bavarian Alps in the south. This wind is most common in autumn.
