Mission Statement

All aspects of youth work under one roof:

Children, teens and adults, everyone should feel happy on Burg Schwaneck. Its facilities are open to groups, school classes, families, single travellers, no matter where they’re from, be it Munich, Bavaria or the whole wide world, and no matter what they’ve come for: to stay overnight, meet for a conference or to attend some educational course.

All guest rooms are renovated and newly furnished. The atmosphere of the historical conference rooms is sure to inspire flights of imagination. Our cook creates new menu every week. The big garden overlooking the Isar river down below invites play or just idle relaxing. The teams of Kreisjugendring München-Land and Burg Schwaneck offer assistance and advice as well as many accompanying programmes and projects.

The work of KJR München Land is guided by the following objectives:

We foster the development of personality, self-determination, creativity and societal responsibility by following a process and resource-oriented approach. Each and every personality shall be respected and valued. We converse in fair and friendly openness. We encourage equal opportunity and promote social learning, participation and societal involvement through our offerings and projects, all of which were designed to be democratic, inter-cultural, protective of the interests of minorities, and gender-conscious.

We follow a holistic future-oriented approach which combines social and ecological learning. On all levels we promote ecological awareness, a responsible and sustainable approach towards nature and environment. We also promote a future-proof development according to the Agenda 21. The KJR wants to make ecology being experienced as an enhancement to quality of life and future opportunities.

We plan far-seeing and use limited resources only as needed, efficiently and effectively. Our offerings reach many children and adolescents, give a good value for the money and are of a high pedagogical quality. The sustainable handling of resources of all sorts (natural, material, personal and financial) is natural for us.
