The remarkable Lake Starnberg
At the time of Ludwig II of Bavaria, today’s Lake Starnberg was called Würmsee. It is Germany’s fifth largest lake. The idyllic water offers unique panoramic vies and is a delight for nature-loving hikers. Not far from the western shore of the lake is the Rose Island, which was regularly visited by the much-loved Empress Elizabeth of Austria, better known as ‘Sisi’. Bathing fun awaits you in the midst of these impressive landscapes. Also: art lovers take note! You will have a wonderful view of the lake from the Buchheim Museum. In addition, you have the opportunity to marvel at a great collection of expressionist works in the extremely modern museum building.
