The Seidlpark in Murnau am Staffelsee is not far from my apartment and has quickly become my favourite place for a little green kick in between.
Emanuel von Seidl was an important man for Murnau. Around 1900, the Munich architect brought new ideas, new architecture and a breath of fresh air to Murnau. Here he liked it so much that he built himself a villa surrounded by a park - his “promised land”.
Despite his clear will, his country house was demolished in 1972.
