District Neuherberg

Neuherberg - The `Kalte Herberge` near the Munich city limits
This town district is located in the south-eastern part of the municipality where the roads “Staatsstraße 2053” from Lustheim to Munich and “Ingolstädter Landstraße” converge.

When Elector Maximilian extended his property in Schleißheim at the beginning of the 17th century, he also acquired Neuherberg. Over the course of time, a story about a murderous, man-eating innkeeper was pinned on the tavern located at the two converging roads and nicknamed “Kalte Herberge” (cold inn).

It was only in the 1950s that this frequently quoted story turned out to be a fabrication of the lively imagination of Romanticist minds.

A few years after the end of World War II, the premises of the former pig fattening farm (which later became the Sancta Maria educational establishment for boys run by a catholic order, the Marist Brothers of the Schools, and, as from 1938, a military experimental station) became home to research institutes such as the Helmholtz Zentrum München (German Research Center for Environmental Health).
