I am living close to the lake. It has many different areas for all kinds of activities. There are bycicle tracks almost all around the lake. Public beaches can be full during hot summer days. These areas are great for small children since there is very little slope. They can play on the water wihtout having to fear they would... More

We have been here twice for the regatta at the end of September. Its a great location and Starnberg is an amazing town to visit. We love the hospitality and welcome from the people.

I work occasionally in Munich and thirty of my pals came to visit me for a weekend in June 2013. After showing them a few city sites the following day I took them to Starnberg on a very hot sunny day. Believe me they still talk about it to this day. 100% recommend the boat trip. Go Go Go

We visited Starnberg, after driving for 30 Km from Munich, on a Sunday during a beautiful weather. It took us a while of driving through small and narrow roads to reach an accessible part of the lake shore. The area is beautiful and excellent for a relaxing walk in the midst of naturally tranquil scenery. There were few people walking... More

One of the most beautiful lakes across Europe. Especially stunning on a warm summer day! Well worth the trip to this and the other Bavarian lakes.

You want to see the Bavaria of your guide books with the snow-covered mountains, villages and forests? Go there! On a clear day you have the Impression of a picture postcard. I recommend a boat trip. It is the hop-on/hop off principle. You can disembark, see the place and then continue with the next boat.

35 minutes from the centre of Munich on the S-Bahn (S8). Plenty of restaurants and beer gardens line the shores of the lake with stunning views. Take one of the many boat trips, we took the Großer Rundfahrt that lasted about three hours. on-board restaurant and bar for a very relaxing trip.

Truly breathtaking, it is my favourite lake. Perhaps because it was the first I ever visited in Bavaria, but there is a lovely beach bar, where you can view the mountain, and jump into the lake if you choose, and eat delicious Flammkuchen. Worth a day trip for sure.
