What a beautiful lake! There is an island you can visit with a little ferry and big tourists boats which go over the lake. In good weather you have the alps in the background. Love it!

Idyllic location on the Starberger See lake and the view of the German Alps in the distance, this is a ideal place for a day out from Munich. Only 30 mins by S6 from Munich Pasing station, the place provides a quick getaway. Ample food to eat, things to buy and water sports at your disposal, the place is just... More

We took a boat tour of half of the lake. The weather was glorious, and we had a good view of the Bavarian Alps. The scene would be familiar to people who have boated on Lake Okanagan in British Columbia or Lac d'Annecy in the French Alps. It's a pleasant way to spend an hour or so, but the subsequent... More

We took the train out from Munich. Not a bad trip and arriving in Starnberg is more than worth it. The train drops you off, literally, at the edge of the lake. Make sure it's a nice day because the views of the snow capped mountains are not to be missed.

This bucolic vista is one to not be missed;) All of our children love the fun in the lake and, if it is raining, the pool if spectacular.

We really loved the place!! We ate lunch at the lake and wanted to rent a motor boot but all were rented out and we decided to go for a walk. We took lots of pictures and we enjoyed walking through the forest and admired the tall treas. I was a beautiful day and in the distance you could see... More
