The U6 U-bahn to Universitat takes you to Geschwester Scholl-platz, named after Sophie and Hans Scholl, the students who were murdered by the Nazis for challenging the regime. The buildings in this area, and the nearby Englischer Garten, will be familiar to admirers of "Heimat 2." This is where Edgar Reitz set his series about student life in the 1960's. The area just to the north contains many beautiful Art Nouveau villas.
U6 to Universitat. Short walk to Englischer Garten.
Excellent beer (first brewed at the monastery in 1455) and traditional Bavarian food in magnificent surroundings. You can even roam around the local countryside (including the nearby Amersee lake) to work off the extra calories.
A short trip on the S5 train south from Munich to Herrsching and then a walk (or bus/taxi) up to the monastery.
The Waldfriedhof is a huge cemetery. However, it’s not the sort with row upon row of graves, but with lots of trees (wald-forest) and the graves in many little groups. Basically the whole thing is a great big park, with various parts, including a lake with incredibly fat fish lazing around in it.
Great place to step off the world for a few hours, take a good long walk or just flop on the grass. Bring some food and an umbrella (and a street map and compass wouldn’t hurt) as you can get lost and wander round for hours. Grave styles range from the kitschly pious (squirly Bavarian crosses with little roofs) to thoroughly modern and non-religious sculptures.
Bus routes 54, 268 and 167 go around the outside;
Nearest u-bahn: Holzapfelkreuth (u6), then get a bus or walk along Fürstenrieder str. - the Friedhof starts at the crossroads with Wurmtalstr.
