Apart from swimming, you can rent a boat and explore the lake with friends. There is also a guided boat tour offered for those who would like to just sit back and relax.
Located only 27 km south of the inner city, Starnberger See is Munich's closest neighbouring lake. With a maximum depth of 127 metres, covering 57 squared km, and offering a view of the Alps, this lake is quite a sight to behold.
Starnberger See can be reached by car by the A95 Munich-Garmisch, exit at Starnberg. It is also accessable by train with the S6 towards Tutzing.
Starnberg is a quaint and upmarket Bavarian town with lots of shops selling traditional Bavarian clothing, also many cafés and restaurants. The forest around Possenhofen is ideal for a romantic walk, and Possenhofen itself harbours a modest house where Princess Elisabeth was born, who was to become empress of Austria.
