In late Autumn, the See becomes glassy and turns the colour of mercury. The peaks of the Alps are just visible through the grey mist. You can see Winter coming in Starnberg. Beautiful place.

This lake is within easy reach of Munich by train or car. Lovely views across the lake towards the mountains and lots of cafes and bars nearby to try out local specialties!

Starnberger See in March (3 Replies)
Hey there, I am spending a day in Munich in my way to Nuremberg on the 16th of March. I want to take my wife to see Starnberger See Lake, but I was wondering whether it would be too cold to enjoy it. I am planning to take the S6 to Starnberg. Is this the best way to reach the lake? and is walking going to be easy from there? What activity can we do beside walking around, and what attractions you think we shouldn't miss?

Thanks guys for both your advices. I guess it will depends on how sunny Saturday would be. If the weather is right, I am inclined to go ahead and visit the lake anyway, and if we feel cold, we can always head back to town, otherwise, I can follow Panda's advice and stay in Munich, which is a great city that has so much to offer. Thanks Susi P for your tips, I will try to see the places you mentioned.
