It is really pretty, with many opportunities for sports, swimming, having a pic nic etc! A nice place to visit if you have enough time to escape a bit from he city center. Easily reachable by the S-bahn.

Was in Munich for the weekend and decided to go to the end of the S Bahn. On my way back I got off at Starnberg. The station is on the lakeside and it really is lovely - I fully understand why people come here.

Easy to get to using the public transportation. Nice place to walk along the lake or sit outside at a resturant and enjoy the view.

Worth for a visit in the evenings on a good weather. Very beautiful views with the lake and mountains, with swans, yachts, boats etc. You can enjoy a drink in the restaurant with the beautiful views.Also the shops nearby sells souvenirs at a reasonable price.

Just an hour's drive from the city, this lake district is beautiful with lovely cafes and pubs along its banks. Great place for a stroll and a drink or two.
