We recently moved from Munich to Herrsching. From a big crazy (cute) city to an even cuter lakeside village. Our apartment is a bit bigger and not 5 floors up so we are very happy!
It has gotten a bit colder over the past weeks, but we are enjoying every minute exploring our new town and getting to know its people. Driving from Munich to Herrsching is something from a dream. Rolling green fields of cows and horses invite you into the small town of 8,000 people in the winter and 13,000 in the summer.
My favorite things to do in Herrsching are walk to the grocery store (impossible in LA!) and stroll down to the lakeside and walk along the edge. I walked to the Archeological Park, a 7th century settlement of the Bavarians, the other week and enjoyed the changing colors of the trees and the brisk autumn air.
We had visited Herrsching prior to moving to our new apartment here, and enjoyed the lake in the warmer summer days. It is filled with gelato-eating travelers and paddleboarders. Some of my favorite two things! Since it’s gotten chillier, the amount of people have dwindled drastically. Herrsching still maintains its Bavarian, October charm.
The little castle is one of the city’s most popular attractions. It sits looking over the calm blue lake while the nearby church rings out its bells on the hour. There are far fewer things to do in Herrsching than Munich, but the nearby subway to the city quells any urban urge. We will see what the town brings in the winter!
