A lovely blue lake with fabulous views of the mountains in the distance. You can walk along the lakeside and there are occasional restaurants and villages along the way. If you're a waterskier, there is a ski club at Possenhofen and you can pay a guest fee without being a member.

Try the boat trip around the lake if all you want to do is relax and gaze at the mountain panorama.

I went on a bike ride with a friend from Starnberg to Tutzing during the summer. The scenery was stunning and there is a nice little island "Roseninsel" which you can either access by boat or even just swim across - it only takes 3 minutes. There are plenty of small beaches you can stop at for a dip in... More

Great view of the lake and in a clear day of the Alps on the back. Nice bars and restaurants along the lake, but in winter many are closed.

This is a lovely lake in a glorious setting. It is possible to have boat trips and there are numerous places to eat. A really great recreation area which is easily reached from Munich.
