27km (17 miles) SW of Munich

This large lake, southwest of Munich, is a favorite with M√ľnchners on holiday. If you take a cruise on the lake, you can observe how the terrain changes from low-lying marshlands on the north to Alpine ranges towering above the lake to the south. The town of Starnberg is the best-equipped holiday resort on the lake, with beaches, pools, and lakefront promenades.
