New shooting range 2015

The shooting range of the Royal Privileged Main Shooting Society Munich 1406 (usually called HSG Munich for short) is the representative seat of this shooting society in Munich . The main building is registered as a monument in the Bavarian list of monuments. In addition to the modern shooting ranges used by the company and the club rooms in the main building, there is also a generally accessible restaurant with a beer garden .


The site is on the Zielstattstrasse, named after him, west of the Munich – Holzkirchen railway line . When the shooting range was built, the site was in the south of Mittersendling, right on the Munich city limits to the then still independent municipality of Thalkirchen . In older literature, the shooting range is therefore also referred to as the Mittersendling shooting range . Until 1992 the area was assigned to the city district 34 (Waldfriedhofsviertel). Since the reorganization of the city districts in 1992 it has belonged to the Obersendling district of the city district 19 Thalkirchen-Obersendling-Forstenried-Fürstenried-Solln .

The main building is oriented north-south, the front facade faces east. There is a tree-lined green area in front of the shooting range, through which an approximately 50 m long access road leads to the parking lots in front of the building. To the west are the shooting ranges and the field protected by concrete walls, shot at. The site, which originally extended further to the west, was reduced in size in order to set up a sports field on the former westernmost part.


New shooting range around 1898

The building was erected at the end of the 19th century as the new shooting range of the royally privileged Hauptschützengesellschaft Munich from 1406. Until 1847, their shooting range was on the site of today's main train station , which is still reminiscent of the name of Schützenstraße . Then she moved to the Theresienhöhe at the end of Schießstättstrasse . Because of the planned exhibition area on the Theresienhöhe, a new relocation was necessary in the early 1890s.

In 1892 a competition was announced to obtain drafts. The architects Paul Pfann and Günther Blumentritt emerged from this with the first prize. Construction began in September 1892 and was completed in October 1893. The costs for land acquisition, construction and all facilities were around 584,000 gold marks .

The main building contains, on the one hand, the shooting range and, on the other hand, all the facilities that a traditional club needed to be sociable. The shooting ranges are lined up to the west on the ground floor. Behind them lies the 270 m² loading room, to which there are colonnades on the left and right. From the main entrance with an outside staircase , a wide staircase leads to the upper floor to the festival rooms. The central ballroom with 280 m², over which a wooden barrel spans, is shown from the outside through the oversized window fronts. An orchestral stage is built into the hall, the front wall is decorated with the mural Die Schützenliesl by Friedrich August von Kaulbach . The Fürstensaal in the bay window above the main entrance and another, smaller hall are also located on the upper floor . The house is plastered and painted brightly, the coat of arms of the Hauptschützengesellschaft is attached to the gable, the roof ridge above the ballroom is crowned by a turret on which the Münchner Kindl is attached as a weather vane.


In the north of the front of the main building there is a public restaurant on the ground floor . In front of the restaurant there is a beer garden with 2500 seats and a bar kiosk under the old trees. The restaurant and beer garden have been called Augustiner Schützengarten since 2013 , previously they were known as Munchner Haupt ' , and before that as Neue Schießstätte .

The shooting range adjoins the main building to the west. There are a total of 30 indoor and 44 outdoor shooting ranges for different disciplines and over different distances.

The single-storey extensions to the main building house 10 m shooting ranges for air rifles and air pistols and 25 m shooting ranges for sports pistols .
