The "Museum Starnberger See" - Lake Starnberg Museum - was opened in Starnberg in 2008. With its considerable exhibition space covering 1200 m², itis one of the largest regional museums in Bavaria. Unusual exhibits illustrate elaborate lake hunts and splendid lake parties held by the Wittelsbach dukes, electors and kings by Lake Starnberg from 15th century until the death of King Ludwig II. You can also watch a short film on this subject in the Museum Cinema. When you walk through the museum, the "Delphin", the last surviving pleasure ship from the time of King Ludwig I. (1786 - 1868), is a great eye-catching attraction, in view of its size and the prow figure of a dolphin which gave it is name. Be transported back topast eras by model ships, like that of the "Bucentaur", a "floating ballroom", original prow figures of the ship "Carolina" crafted during the regency of King Max I. (1756 - 1825) and a multitude of other outstanding exhibits. From the early 19th century onwards, the picturesque atmosphere of Lake Starnberg enchanted Munich artists. As a result, a magnificent villa culture developed, together with flourishing tourism, which still continues today.
