Architecture[edit]

The most important buildings are the originally Romanesque church St.Stephan in the centre of Oberhaching, the Gothic church Mariae Geburt in Oberbiberg, the Baroque church Holy Cross in Kreuzpullach and the Renaissance Wittelsbach mansion in Laufzorn. The small palace was built by Albert VI, Duke of Bavaria and later served as a residence for his nephew Maximilian Philipp Hieronymus, Duke of Bavaria-Leuchtenberg.

Sports[edit]

The Paraguay national football team was stationed here during the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

In addition, Oberhaching is connected via the Lanzenhaarer Straße with the Bundesstraße 13, which is almost 350 km long and leads from Würzburg via Ingolstadt and Munich to the shore of the Sylvensteinsee (near the border with Austria).
