If you want to relax after work, this is the right place. Quiet and lovely place into nature; after a walk, traditional German, Asian and Italian restaurants wait for you!

Starnberg lake is gorgeous in any season – in summer you can swim and sup there in crystal water, in winter it’s cozy to have Glühwein in cafes. The nature is beautiful with all its birds (gooses, ducks, swans, seagulls etc), as well as you...More
