Made our own way there on the public transport. Worth going on a boat trip as it was very relaxing. Nice little place to wander around with lots of nice cafes and shops. Good to get away from the hustle and bustle for the day.

An easy trip on the S Bahn from Munich - and a chance to see the surrounding countryside. A trip on the Lake is good value - with plenty to see.

The seafood platter starter was amazing. Good beer and wine options. Very traditional German entrees, with some nice Italian options. Atmosphere is traditional German beerhaus, with nice view in the English Garden. Good quality food, nice service.

The Starnberger See is a lovely lake! Excursion boats let you experience the beauty of the lake and its surroundings. Just don't try to walk along the lake shore: it is almost completely inaccessible and the foot path along the busy road is dangerously inadequate.

`this lake is stunning. We went to Starnberg with the S-Bahn and walked into the village for breakfast, then walked a bit along the promenade. We were only put off by the rain, but instead of returning to Munich we went three stops along the line to Tutzing. It was a typically German village, a very pleasant change from Munich... More

I stayed in pathetic Possenhofen Jugendherberge which was located two minutes by foot away from the Starnberger See, and I visited Starnberger See every day for an hour. The waters are glistening and clear and the views of the land and mountains opposite are formidable. It is also great to visit at night with your loved one as it is... More

I went here from Munich central and it took me 30 minutes via Sbahn to get here. It's a beautiful place to visit for a day to chill. Don't forget to bring some food to feed the ducks and the birds.

We stopped here when we were staying in the Munich area. It was really beautiful and the kids loved paddling in the water (which was cold but not to bad) Only downside were the mosquitos. They were everywhere and quite pesky. I received about 10 bites and we had to leave early. If I had known we may have worn... More
