Oberschleißheim is best known for the Schleissheim Palace and the Flugwerft Schleissheim next to the airport housing the airplane department of the German Museum. The airfield is also home to one of the five German Federal Police helicopter squadrons.
Schleißheim was first mentioned as “Sliusheim” in 785. In the Year 1315 the name of the village became “ Sleizheim”. Between 1616 and 1623 Duke Maximilan I. erected the Old Schloss. From 1701 to 1726 the New Schloss was built to the orders of Max Emanuel, including the Schloss Lustheim. In the Mid 19th Century Oberschleißheim built a railway station with the name “Schleißheim” connecting to the Munich-Landshut railway route. This railway station was replaced by the “Oberschleißheim” station in 1972 due to the opening of the S-Bahn.
Regatta Course Oberschleißheim
In 1972 an artificial canoe sprint and rowing regatta was created in Oberschleißheim for the Munich Olympic Summer Games. The 2 kilometers long and 135 meters wide Regatta is one of the fairest and best Olympic tracks in the World. The facility is serviced and used regularly. The Regatta can easily be reached through Munich’s excellent infrastructure. Visitors have the opportunity to watch competitions on the stadium like bleachers that encompass 9500 seats.
The airfield and its historic buildings were constructed between 1912 and 1919 by the Königlich-Bayerische Fliegertruppen (Royal Bavarian Flying Corps). In the early 1990s the historic maintenance hangar was restored and enlarged to accommodate the Deutsches Museum's growing aviation collections. The Museum was opened on September 18, 1992.
The Museum has many aerospace exhibits. These include various Airplanes, Helicopters, Motors and Turbines.
