Where to live in the outskirts of Munich

17 posts in this topic

My husband and I are moving to Munich in the spring. We want to live relatively close to Olympia Park because he will be working at Oracle (within 30min by car or S Baun) and we want to live in a place that has bavarian charm, greenery or water, and a house that has some sort of garden or yard for our dogs. Please let us know what you think. I was looking at Freising, Feldmoching, or something like that...?

i can recommend freising for nature, pubs, less rent (slightly), and a comfortable atmosphere. it's within easy reach of munich should you want to visit but is also a real bit of bavaria. (also has a great swedish fish shop owner but that's 'was anderes'!!) if you want to know more, let me/us know, we lived there for several years.

Life in Freising, What is it all about?

The town of Freising, Just north of Munich

 

I would personally ignore the Starnberg suggestion, what with it being completely and utterly the wrong side of Munich. Freising is probably about a 30-minute drive in the rush hour to Olympia Park, but by public transport will be a little more complicated. It's very much a town in its own right; it's very different to living in Munich itself. You should probably decide if you want to live in a big city or not. I suggest not ;)

30 mins by car or S Bahn, water and greenery, surely Starnberg is the best option ?

30mins from Starnberg lake to Olympiapark? show me how you do that during rush hour. Freising looks like a much better option.

I live in Lerchenau, which is just near Olympia Park. It's a lovely area to live in (quite rich - not us though!) and we end up spending loads of time at Olympia Park - there's always so much going on there and it's only a five minute cycle away. I need to drive through Feldmoching and Oberschleissheim to get to Unterschleissheim, where I work, and they all look like nice places to live too.

NOFXmike - who told you that? It is so definitely not true. Unterschleissheim is so much bigger than Oberschleissheim that you can't compare them.

A few Toytowners, my gf (who lived in Oberschleissheim for several years when she was like 8-12, er something...), and a guy I know from an online game who lived there for 6 months til he could find someplace better...

 

I dunno, I just want to move out of here...and Oberschleissheim looks/sounds so wonderful...

Grosshadern is less than 30 mins from the Olympic Park by car and U-Bahn. Right on the edge of town for greenery and house options. Starnberg to Olympic Park in 30 mins is pushing it a bit IMO

As a general rule, the suburbs to the north are not in as pretty a setting and as close to the Alps as the other suburbs, however you can get anywhere much faster. The airport and all major Autobahnen are reachable from the northern suburbs, plus it is a quick drive to the "Olympic" area that Oracle is at, as well as Schwabing.

 

Everyone has mentioned some town names, but no one mentioned Ismaning and that area, which is worth looking at.

 

I personally have lived in Unterschleissheim for 27 years, and find the location and infrustructure to be top-notch, especially for children. BTW, the ONLY things that Oberschleissheim has going for it is the Schloss (Castle), plus it is a few minutes closer to Munich.

working at Oracle i´d recommend living in Moosach (where I live). If you´d prefer living a bit outside of Munich in a more bavarian style place how about Gröbenzell?. S-Bahn during rushhour 10 mins, not to far from Olympic park but already outside of Munich.

Not much going on in Grosshadern, it's pretty quiet. though I think it would be a nice place for a family. Forest, parks, and lovely big cemetery nearby, a few (very few) resturants, a bit in the country but still on the U-Bahn line. I work at schools in Gauting and Graefelfing and they are nice also, bit more of a small town feel to them, definely posh upper class sort of suburbs. Not quite as far out as Starnberg, but a bit of a hike to the Olimpic park i guess.

I just found my dream home in a place called "Odelzhausen," which is in Dachau Kreis. It's aboud 50 kilo outside of Munich but on the autobahn it shouldn't take longer than a half an hour. Does anyone here know anything useful about Odelzhausen?
