Beautiful surroundings and quiet town centre. We took the train from Munich - easy and cheapish - spent a lovely afternoon wandering around the loch and town.

Didn't have much time here but it is well worth visiting. The train from the centre of Munich doesn't take much more than half an hour and when you alight you are at the end of the lake with (if the weather is kind) the spectacular Alps in the distance. We visited early April on a warm sunny day and... More

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.

And try not to go on a weekend, when all the city people come out. There's more to see than you expect: the quirky Buchholz Museum neat Tutzing, the lovely Roseninsel, the Sissi museum at Possenhofen. 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

We went for a 10 k walk,surrounding the lake,and it was an amazing experience.It's very easy to get there with the S-bahn,and there are a few restaurants where you can eat or have a glass of wine in a relly awesome atmosphere.

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.
