"Waves embrace the beach - each taking and giving at the same time - at the lake, I lie in silence."
Situated half an hour from Munich, Lake Starnberg offers a magnificent view of the nearby mountains as far as Zugspitze. The region around Starnberg between Munich and the mountains is pure idyll - no other region in Bavaria has so many old villas and castles. Many holidaymakers and day-trippers use Lake Starnberg for swimming, sailing, surfing, golfing or to cycle around the lake. You meet on the beaches and in the numerous cafés. Many visitors are also interested in the Rose Island or the "Sisi Castle" in Possenhof. Lake Starnberg is also worth a trip in winter. With a short journey you can be in many of the Alpine ski areas.
