The boat ride offers a relaxing experience with nice views of countryside and the Alps. Afterwards, enjoy a nice meal at Restaurant Alpenblick at one of the stops. (this also offers ample parking)

We have visited the Staffelsee several times over the last decade. Due to the dark stones on the lake bottom, it warms up and is swimmable early in June. There are wonderful trails for walking and jogging around the lake, excellent food at the Alpenblick,...More

Not a beach area, but a private one next door to the public area. Temperature is always warm, ferry is nice, but pulls up right next to the swimmers, and the grass area acts as a nice place for a picnic/sunbathing.

Not sure why anyone would really make a tourist trip out here unless you're visiting friends or relatives in hospital in nearby Murnau. Reedy. Remote.
