Home of Germany`s oldest Lakeland sailing school, Ammersee offers various recreational activities, including swimming, rowing, sailing, and wind-surfing. Steam liners provide transportation leading to multiple drop-offs around the lake.
Nearby Andechs, a monastery dubbed the "Holy Mountain", offers a top notch beer garden with specialty beers and traditional Bavarian cuisine. The picturesque scenery invites visitors to hiking trips in the surrounding Ammersee area and to a pilgrimage to the holy mountain. And those who feel a bit drowsy after several litres of strong Bavarian beer can get a boat back to the next train station.
Getting there is easy, just hop on the S8 (train) and continue until the last stop, Herrsching.
