About our home

Our house was built in 2005. It is very spacious (200 square meters) and located in a quiet neighbourhood just outside Munich. The modern home has all the latest conveniences like a giant television set (65 inch 3D Plasma TV) and fast Internet access over wireless LAN. In our sunny living room there is a Korg Triton synthesizer that you are welcome to use.

We have four bedrooms and the house can sleep up to six people comfortably. The house has three bathrooms, two with shower and two with bathtub. The bathtub in the large bathroom is large enough for two adults and two small children. The large open kitchen is fully equipped with oven and stove, dish washer, microwave, fridge and freezer. If you should run out of space, there is an extra fridge and freezer in the basement.

The master bedroom is fully air-conditioned and has a bathroom right next door. The sofa in the guest room converts into a very comfortable full-size bed for two adults. This room has its own private terrace to the back of the house facing the forest.

The children’s bedrooms (pink bedroom and blue bedroom) both have full size beds and have their own balcony facing the front garden. We also have lots of toys for children, like a large selection of Duplo (Lego), dozens of puzzles, cuddly pets, DVDs in English and two trampolines. Our garden is very quiet and private.

Cars: We own an Audi A4 3.0 convertible (4 seats, automatic), a Volkswagen Touran (7 seats, automatic) and a Porsche Boxter 987 convertible (2 seats, stick shift). All three cars can be included in the exchange.

The floor plans that you see in the pictures are accurate concerning the walls and room sizes. The furniture is like the architect imagined it to be, but not how we really put it.

Where is it?


We live in a quiet residential neighbourhood (Eichenau) near Munich with very little traffic (we have about 5 cars per hour that drive through our street). Shops are all within easy reach. It only takes about 20 minutes to get to downtown Munich by either car or subway (no need to change lines, our subway line runs right through the city center).

Munich is a world's major tourist attraction and one of Europe's safest and most attractive cities. I have included a few pictures of Munich and the surrounding areas in the pictures of Home Exchange. Munich is an exciting and vibrant city with a great variety of cultural activities. It is often called Germany’s cultural capital because of the very wide offer of the city in cultural matters (top universities, museums, symphony orchestras, opera houses, theatres, lots of cinemas, festivals...). It‘s restaurant-, bar- and night life scenes are famous and rich in diversity.

In Munich, the nature is never far away. It's a very green city with lots of parks, like the Englischer Garten, the biggest park within any city in Europe. Munich boast lots of very cosy beergardens in summer - not to forget the world-famous Hofbrauhaus and its beer. Have a look at the recently opened BMW World, where you can take a factory tour of the BMW production line. Or visit the Olympic site with its unique architecture. If you dare, you can even take a guided walking tour over the tent-like glass roof.

If you enjoy biking, no problem: you'll find cycling tracks everywhere here! We have five bicycles (two for children, three for adults) which you are welcome to use to enjoy the many fantastic trails around the city.

More on the cultural side is Nymphenburg Palace, the old Residence, a vast variety of museums, churches and landmarks – all within 20 minutes from our home. With 1.4 million inhabitants, Munich is just big enough to be international and yet small enough so that you can discover everything by walking or by bicycle. The public transport system in Munich is excellent and has just been rated second-best in the whole world, only surpassed by Singapore.

Munich is also the perfect place to start great day trips in the surrounding areas. The Bavarian Alps are less than an hour away and offer endless opportunities for walking, hiking and mountain biking and lots of royal castles. Neuschwanstein is the smallest but also the most famous of all royal castles in Bavaria and was the inspiration for the Disney World castle. If you miss this one, nobody will believe you were in Munich at all.

We are only 20 minutes away from the famous Lake Starnberg, home of the rich and famous, and in easy reach of Lake Ammersee, Lake Chiemsee and Lake Walchensee, which are great for swimming, surfing, sailing, rafting, walking, golfing and relaxing. Some of these lakes are bustling with night life while others are very relaxed and laid back. The Munich area also has the most golf clubs in Germany. You find more than 30 different golf clubs within a 20 to 90 minutes drive from our house, many with excellent mountains views.

Munich is at the heart of Europe. It is less than 2 hours drive to the Austrian, Swiss, Italian and Czech Republic borders. Salzburg (Mozart's hometown) is only 90 minutes away. A five hour drive or one hour flight will even get you to Venice.
