Yes, it’s true: The Landhaus was built in 1976 by FC Bayern soccer club president Neudecker as a guest house for the club. Since 1962, he’d been the driving force that catapulted the team – that included Maier, Müller, Hoeneß and Beckenbauer to the pinnacle of European soccer. The team stayed at the guest house during their training camps to prepare for important matches. Where our “Bayernstüberl” (“Bavaria Parlor”) can be found today, strategies were once drawn up and victories celebrated. In 1979, when Neudecker stepped down after the legendary players’ revolt, the guest house was sold and became the Hotel Sapplfeld.
