Lake Starnberg Day Trip: a ferry ride, swimming, a visit to the Rose Island, quaint towns, and ending at a spectacular lakeside beer garden

Day Trip to Lake Starnberg

A day out on the beautiful 25km long lake with views of the Alps, for a boat ride, swimming, and ending at a spectacular lakeside beer garden. We take the light rail from Munich to Starnberg (20-30 minutes), boat to Berg, then walk along the lake for about 30 minutes to Leoni for swimming and lunch.

Re-boarding the boat, we cross the lake disembarking at Possenhofen for a 90-minute walk to Tutzing for a traditional beer garden right on the lake. Finally, we walk off our dinner with a 30-minute stroll past the most surprising royal residence of them all to the light rail station for the train back to Munich (30-40 minutes).
