Public transport: The walking distance to the S-Bahn (That is how we call the public transport railway system of Munich) is 7 minutes. From there it is a 30 minute ride to the city centre. The train operates twice per hour and the ticket is EUR 14,20 per day (covers up to 5 persons and allows unlimited travelling in the Munich area). The first train departs at 5:17 am, the last one out from the city departs 01.30am in the city centre. Travelling between us and Munich city without a car, is no problem here.
Environment: We are an environment friendly location! Ca. 40% of the electricity for house and heating, are generated by our roof top photovoltaic system. Toilets and washing machines are sourced by a rainwater system.
Excellent stay! We´ve spent two weeks in the smaller one. Well located, close to the train station, easy way to Munich, Nürnberg, Salzburg, Zugspitze, etc. Clean and organized. The Herz family is very nice, friendly and always there if you need anything.The possibility of cooking at "home" gave us the joy of feeling at a very cozy place. Gerne wieder (would do it again). Vielen Dank.
Our family stayed for overnight sleep on our way to ski vacation. Comortable and clean house, very friendly owners. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed at this location in September 2011 and 2013. The place is very clean. The owners are friendly and are very helpful providing guidance on tourist attractions.
The unit is very clean and spacious. It includes everything that we need including hair dryer, pots and pans, cups and other utensils.
It is only about 700m from the s-bahn (subway) and takes about 30 minutes to get to the heart of Munich. The subway ride is very scenic.
We definitely recommend this place to visitors and we will definitely stay there again.
We are a Canadian family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children 11 and 13) who are on an around-the-world trip. We stayed in many apartments across Europe. This place was very nice - great backyard for the kids, spotlessly clean, good coffee machine, access to washing machine, good internet connection, big bedroom and a pullout couch. We found it a great location for sightseeing in Munich - took the SBahn from Ottobrun station (parked our car there) as the tickets were cheaper from there. Buying a Family pass for the transit made it so inexpensive to tour all over Munich. Nice kitchen which made it great for having breakfast there, making our lunches for the day and we mostly ate dinner out each night.
Rupert was an excellent host and had lots of information on sightseeing in and around Munich.
The apartment is very nice and modern. Rupert is nice but there are rules to follow. You can't wear shoes in the apartment and you can only use the washer and dryer when the owner is there and only during certain times of the day. There is a 2 EURO charge for washing and drying. There is NO internet access at the apartment. Rupert told us that by law the owner is responsible for what guests do on the internet so he does NOT provide access to his network account. Nevertheless, it is a very short walk to the Durnhaar train station and from there easy access to Munich. Aying, about 3 kilometers away, has the famous Ayinger brewery and beer garden. A must if you stay here. There didn't seem to be a good bike/walking path to Aying, only the highway so we felt you need to drive there or take the train. If the rules and internet access aren't important to you this is a nice place to stay.
This apartment was extremely clean, modern, and well-maintained. The owners are very attentive and helpful. I was worried about being to far outside the city, but access to Munich was extremely easy and I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Oktoberfest or travelling to Munich.
The small village of Dürrnhaar is surrounded by woods which are very nice for walking and cycling. The village of Aying (5 min. by car) with it's brewery and marvellous Alp mountain panorama, has some very nice Bavarian food places and beer garden. For those who like to go for King Ludwigs castle, can reach Nymphenburg palace or Herrenchiemsee in ca. 45 min. by car. The local train station gives you a quick lift to middle of Munich's city (Marienplatz), where you can relax, while enjoying a beer at the Hofbrauhaus, go for some shopping in the shopping area or visit cultural places. For the youngsters and techies in your family, don't miss the Deutsches Museum in Munich. It is Europes largest technology museum and can easily satisfy a rainy day. The village of Dürrnhaar is the perfect place between Munich and the mountains.
