I always wanted to meet alpacas. Who would have expected my first encounter to be near Munich in Germany?
Even though my blog mainly talks about travelling beyond Germany, I still spend most of my time in my home country Germany. My job and family are based there. And honestly, as much as I love travelling abroad, I also admire my home surroundings at least as much. Sometimes they even hold big surprises, like this special Sunday in September.
What a discovery! I think more people should know about Alpaka Beach Alling. I didn’t only flirt with alpacas there. As the name suggests, alpacas freely roam around the whole area. Additionally, Alpaka Beach offers indoor and outdoor beach volleyball. You can rent amazing outdoor barbecue areas and get drinks at their indoor bar. Different playgrounds for kids and adults, including a climbing wall and a flying fox, guarantee a joyful time there.
I was so inspired that I already vividly imagined my next birthday party there. Alpaka Beach is an unexpected place near Munich, which I warmly recommend. If you wanna get to know the alpaca habitants, click here to get to Alpaka Beach’s website.
How to get there
Alling is small enough to be considered a village. Accordingly, getting to Alpaka Beach will require at least one stopover if you choose public transportation. From Munich, you can either take the train S4 (Geltendorf) until Fürstenfeldbruck and then bus X900 (Starnberg), or you take the train S8 (Herrsching) until Germering and then bus 852 (Fürstenfeldbruck). Both options will lead you to Alling, Weidenlohstraße where you’ll be a 20-minute walk away from Alpaka Beach. You’ll find all up-to-date connections and fares on Munich’s public transportation website here.
If you have a car, the drive will take you only half as much time: 30 minutes. You’ll most probably drive the highway A96 and possibly join the national road B2. Personally, I admired the surrounding landscape upon arrival, which is quite natural.
