Good for a picnic only
Oct 2019
It's not really worth it - the castle isn't large and not as attractive as ones in Schwangau. Besides, it is a library now. Better chill out in Munich.

Munich sunny-day must-do
Nov 2018 • Couples
‘Schloss’ seems to exaggerate the gravitas of Blutenburg. What stands today is more in the manner of a peaceful country estate than a fortress but it wasn’t always so. It may have been better at keeping people in than out, none more dangerous than Lola Montez.

Today the Schloss fulfils some role in children’s libraries that is, frankly, beyond me. Doesn’t matter, the moat remains, the chapel is a thing of beauty and you can wander through the courtyard at will. An interesting restaurant, Schlossschänke Blutenburg, operates at the side. The menu during my visit was duck and out of respect for the dozens of them in the moat, I went hungry.

The Schloss is a sunny-day must-do. You can safely cycle the 12k's there if you are that crazy. S2 train to Obermenzing, bus 143 stops right outside.

Wodewose on the church! Creepy.
Nov 2017 • Family
This little castle is absolutely lovely. Quite "complete", with a surrounding wall, inner patio, watchtowers, a tavern, library, chapel and even an antiques shop. In a beautiful wooded park, with canal and ponds full of waterfowl, because of time constraints, I did not get a chance to enter the tavern or to see the library or inside the chapel, but what I saw made the walk from up near Nymphemburg very much worthwhile. Whether it is it a MUST or not, that is up to personal judgement and priorities. I'd rather return to this place than to Neuschwanstein, anyway. But perhaps the most memorable image is the painting of a wodewose by the outside wall of the chapel, facing the inner patio. With his body covered in hair and wearing a crown, it is described as the desert hermit Saint Onophrius. I am not a seven year old, but I can imagine how a child would see this, as the strange image was spooky enough to creep the hell out of me.

Take the Walk from Pasing to Blutenburg
Jul 2017 • Family
The way to visit Blutenburg is to walk from Pasing to the castle along the river. It is beautiful and you will encounter several playgrounds if you are with your kids. Bring bread to feed the ducks and geese. Enjoy lunch at the castle's restaurant. Visit the children's library with kids. It is a unique and picturesque spot!

Beautiful Small Palace - with great gardens
Jun 2016 • Solo
A wonderful small palace within an intimate setting.

Library, lake and small restaurant make it an easy stop. The chapel in the wall of the palace is also a delight. Don't miss it.

Great at any time of year.

Slight hike but worth it
Dec 2016 • Friends
the walk up is worth the view from 700+ meters. though the castle has a lot of ruins, there is much preserved. The 360 degree view from the top overlooks many miles of this gorgeous area, Be careful of some of the steps as they are in original condition and are uneven

Lovely romantic castle with bar/restaurant, church and library.
Aug 2016 • Family
We walked along the small river from Pasing to get to Blutenberg and had a wonderful day eating lunch (lovely soup) in the back courtyard watching the bridal couples from two or three weddings, briefly getting inot the church between weddings and spending an enthrallin couple of hours in the youth library wherethere was a wonderful exhibition of the work of north European illustraters as well as the permanent collection of books from around the world. Then we had coffee and exellent dessert in the front bar overlooking the small lake before walking back. There are interesting memorials to those who passed by here on the enforced death marches at the end of the second world war as well as to the romantic couple whose hole it was until the bride, a commoner called Agnes Bernauer, was taken away and drowned by her husband's father, the Duke of Bavaria. This is a wonderful place to spend a day quietly very close to Munich.

Blutenburg Palace ... A place to relax by the lake
Aug 2015 • Solo
It is a small palace by the lake side in the west of Munich and is located in the district of Obermenzing... if you have some time you can take walk along the lake and River Würm. You can also visit the Museum and the Chapel that is a a splendid masterpiece of late Gothic style.

Wonderful royal hunting lodge
Jan 2015 • Couples
This wonderful picturesque little castle is located some 9.26 km west from the city centre and it dated from 15th century. It was used as a hunting-lodge. Very peaceful, pleasant and relaxing experience. My recommendation!
