Hadern is a district in the south west of Munich. It is bordered by part of the BAB Munich to Garmisch motorway in the south, Fürstenrieder Strasse in the east, Senftenauerstrasse in the north and the city boundary in the west.
Originally an old farming community, Grosshadern was incorporated in the urban municipality in 1938. There are vestiges of the old farming settlement to be seen in Großhadern, near the centre of the village. Further out, a less dense suburban landscape of detached houses determines the appearance of this district. After the Second World War and up to the 1980s, residential estates (Blumenau, Senftenauerstrasse, Neuhadern) were built on land that had previously been agricultural.
Currently, new residential construction is underway in the south of the district near Grosshadern Clinic, partly in the form of rental housing and partly in the form of owner-occupied housing. Following extension of the U-Bahn line 6 to Grosshadern Clinic (1993) the district is now very well served, with four stations.
The Grosshadern Clinic of the University of Munich is the largest hospital complex in Munich. The Gene Centre, part of the Ludwig Maximilians University, was opened in 1994; and in 1999 the entire Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy was moved to Hadern. The Children’s Centre of Oberbayern (Upper Bavaria) and the attached Montessori school, as well as the Altenwohnstift Augustinum (retirement home) and the Augustinum clinic are further facilities in the area of social care, which together with the Clinic account for the majority of jobs.
The Grosshadern Munich TSV (sports association) provides many sports facilities (football, handball, volleyball, tennis, gymnastics, mountaineering, aikido and fitness classes) but is world-famous for its judo department. It is the home of several Olympic athletes, medallists, world champions and national league players.
Every year in May, the Football department at TSV Grosshadern puts on the much-loved Hadern Village Festival. Word of this festival has spread well beyond Grosshadern, with the result that it has become an institution and part of the Munich folk festival scene.
Well-known bands, local cabaret artists and prominent politicians gladly appear at the Hadern Village Festival.
For guests interested in sport, the Martinsried Sports Centre is a five minute drive away. There is a full programme of fitness activities and several tennis, squash and badminton courts. Additionally, a visit to the Wellness Oasis will refresh the spirit.
Keen theatre-goers will find something to suit them in our locality. The Heiglhof Theatre team are proactive in their staging of such classics as the dramas of LORIOT, ARSEN UND SPITZENHÄUBCHEN (Kesselring’s Arsenic and Old Lace), or the farce DIE NASHÖRNER or Peter Ustinov’s ENDSPURT (The Photo Finish). An enjoyable evening is guaranteed.
Almost all the larger Bavarian lakes are easily reachable from Grosshadern. The Starnbergersee for instance is 15 minutes away, whilst Ammersee with the famous Andechs monastery is a 20 minutes’ drive. There are also many walking and cycling paths which can be joined directly from the hotel. We are happy to provide further information.
What would Munich be without its world-famous beer gardens? The typical Munich beer garden cannot be found anywhere else. It is the embodiment of the typically congenial lifestyle of the Bavarians.

Erdinger Weißbiergarten (Munich-Großhadern)
Haderner Augustiner (Munich-Großhadern)
