I assume you are thinking of Grünwald (there is also a Grunwald which is in Poland). Grünwald is only a district of Munich, well known for the rich citizens who build their villas there. Quite a few well-known personalities of film and TV live there, as do FC Bayern soccer stars. Historically, apart from a castle (end of 13th century), Grünwald does not have much to offer, although there are archaeological remains from the Bronze age, ca. 1000 BC. Today’s Grünwald developed out of a farmer’s village that was first mentioned 1288, when it was called Derbolfingen. Grünwald only saw a rise in 1910 when it was connected with an urban tram line. Among the attractions are also the Bavaria Film Studios where a few important German movies, among them The Boat and The Never-Ending Story were filmed.

    Grünwald castle

    Grünwald Castle (Burg Grünwald) is a medieval hill castle in Grünwald, Bavaria.

    The castle square goes probably back to a Roman watchtower on the Isar river. The high medieval castle of the 12th Century was documented as a possession of the counts of Andechs. In 1293 it came into the possession of the Wittelsbach. Louis II, Duke of Bavaria acquired at that time the possession of the fortress from Ulrich Vellenberg, a ministeriales of the Counts of Andechs. The present building dates mainly from the late 15th Century, when the castle was renovated to celebrate the wedding of Albert IV, Duke of Bavaria with Kunigunde of Austria, a daughter of emperor Frederick III. The construction work was carried out 1486/87 under the direction of the foreman Jörg Weikertshausen. Louis X, Duke of Bavaria was born here in 1495. The castle was then used as a ducal hunting lodge, prison and powder magazine.
