Sporting pursuits in the new hall

Right next to the fast growing shopping centre on Baumkirchner Straße, the Eisenbahner Sport Verein, ESV München Ost e.V. has moved into its temporary home. This “interim solution” was necessary because of the swift progress of the district’s development: The ESV had to leave its old hall sooner than initially planned and will continue its sporting programme for around 2,500 club members and numerous external users on Baumkirchner Straße over the coming three years. President Peter Baier, who has been running the club for more than 20 years, is pleased that the old structurally and technically outdated hall from the post-war period is now a thing of the past. The club has already started planning the construction of its new triple purpose sports hall on Neumarkter Straße. This is where ESV will find its permanent home from 2019 onwards. Until then, however, the interim solution is much more than just provisional accommodation; even now, it is much larger and more up-to-date that the old ESV hall.

Just let the others do it … if you want to be pampered and spoilt professionally in the lunch break or in the evening, there are various offers available all around NEO just a short distance away.

The Alzira Spa & Wellness is a place of peace and relaxation, despite being on the busy Kreiller Straße. Beauty and spa treatments to the sound of Brazilian music are offered to both men and women.

Saloons Gentlemen, Truderinger Straße 261, specialise in maintaining and removing men’s hair, as the name suggests – head hair as much as hair sprouting on the face. The offer varies from ear hair removal with a fire staff (!) for 9 euros to the men’s spa package for 59 euros.

The expansive Sauna im Michaelibad offers no fewer than four way to sweat: In addition to the classic Finnish sauna at a dry 95°C, there is a sanarium (about 60°C) with changing coloured lights and the comparably mild steam room at about 45°C as well as the earth loft sauna (about 80°C) which is buried in a mound of earth and was built with special Kelo wood from Finland, more than 100 years old and completely untreated.

Just start running: we meet in front of the office. Starting here, we head westwards for one or more laps around the park-like grounds, along the former railway line towards the east, or south to Ostpark.
