  • Nice lake that you can swim around, however be careful there are some mosquitoes in certain areas.. View is great as you can see Alps without any blockage and the nature is really untouched in some places around the lake.. Highly recommended to take a look..
  • One of the most beautiful lakes in Bavaria and indeed a great place to take a boat/cruise ride, ride or drive around it, swim in to and of course to enjoy the spectacle of the Alps visible on the southern end... The lake is surrounded by 8-9 beautiful villages.. Starnberg being the biggest and most popular of them... where the lake also gets its name from. There are many parks and bathing grounds around the entire lake too...some private some public.. though in the summers there's a problem of mosquitoes around the areas that are too green.
