"Stemmerhof" Munich is a real gem I visit fairly often. It was Munich’s last proper dairy farm until 1992 and has been turned into a great public space.

Now this is a real gem and a place I visit fairly often. It is situated in the heart of former farmers’ village Sendling which has become part of the city of Munich at some point.

Until 1992 the Stemmerhof – meaning “the Stemmer family farm” – was Munich’s last proper dairy farm with a large cow meadow and its own production. After a tragic accident putting an end to the milk business tradition the buildings and barns were turned into a public space with local businesses such as food stalls for great lunches in the sun or shopping local goods, an amazing organic super market, a beautiful natural baby shop, a goldsmith’s plus events all around arts, crafts and music to name but a few.

I love this spot for many reasons: first of all because you can feel how much this village oasis is treasured by the local community, it is off the tourist trails and probably even unknown to a lot of Munich residents. After my Saturday food shopping by car (they have parking spaces) I like going for lunch or a coffee on the sunny back terrace of the ÖEins restaurant. But my absolute favourite thing is that the former cow meadow behind the farm is open to the public and a perfect place for picnics, lying in the sun, the children playing football or climbing and even a nap under one of the apple trees.
