The Panzerwiese is a 200 hectare heath area in the north of Munich that is part of the northern Munich gravel plain. It used to be a military training area and was never used as an agricultural area. The plain is practically treeless and shrubless. The Hartelholz is a 115-hectare forest north of the Panzerwiese. The Hartelholz and the Panzerwiese are a proper breeding ground for several birds.



You have several possibilities to get there. If you start in the center of Munich it is maybe a 45 minute bike ride. Other possibilities are the subway (Dülferstraße) or the car.
