When you think of Starnberg you might most likely think of Lake Starnberg“. Yet the city on the north shore itself offers a variety of attractions and sights.
The landmarks of Starnberg, St. Josef church and the castle with its splendid garden, crown the castle hill. The castle used to be the center of summer joy for Munich’s noblemen. With the increasing importance of Starnberg the formally called “Würmsee” was renamed “Starnberger See”. Starnberg is also the place where the first German swimming pool with artificial waves was built in the lake, the legendary “Undosa”. It lent its name to the restaurant by the lake shore, a major center of attraction for the many guests that come to Starnberg on the weekends. – Not least because you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the entire lake, the green lake shores all the way to the Bavarian Alps.
Further city bound you will find the idyllic “Würm valley”, a popular excursion destination as well as an appreciated place of living for people commuting to Munich. Many hiking and biking trails take you from “Lake Starnberg” through the forested area along the Würm river to Gauting, the oldest settlement in the valley.
