Really pretty area with views over to the mountains. Gets busy at weekends with cyclists and loads of walkers. Worth the trek

Two days here; two very different hikes along the beautiful shoreline. The walk along the promenade in Starnberg on a sunny day with cyclists, kids, and cafes was great. The very next day, hiking from Pocking in the wet snow through the forests and country homes that line that part of the shore was even better.

If your in Munich for a few days this is a brilliant and easy day trip from the city centre. It is so beautiful and definitely worth your time.

Just a short ride on the S-Bahn, it is a relaxing escape from the bustle of Munich. There are restaurants and walking paths. You can take several different boat rides on the lake to view castles, monasteries and villas, all with the alps in the background. A great day trip, especially if you don't have access to a car.

We decided to visit Starnberger See on our way to Linderhof to round out our trip that included some of the Ludwig II sites. The site where Ludwig II was found dead is marked by a memorial in the lake. There is also a small memorial chapel that is currently under renovation (Aug-16) There are signs for the memorial, but...

The lake is nice from a istance or if you on one of the tourist boats. The lake is not very accessable by foot..either it is surrounded by concrete, private yacht clubs or houses. The only easy access is in Feldafing with a park and golf course at the lake. In Starnberg it reminds of the 1950s and the lake... More

We were lucky with "Old Women's Summer" in early September there. A German friend recommended us the lake for relaxing atmosphere. By car it's only 40 minutes to reach and parking is the only price to pay which is only 2 euro.
