This is the fascinating five-lakes region between Munich and the Alps. The famous lakes Starnberger See, Ammersee, Worthsee, Pilsensee and Weißlinger See give this lovely part of the country its name.
Absolute relaxation for anyone seeking to restore their sense of wellbeing, a challenge for the sportsman, a Mecca for culture vultures, and for many artists the bedrock of their artistic endeavours. The Starnberger See is indeed the second biggest lake in Upper Bavaria; at Ammersee you can expect to find a natural paradise and at the other lakes you will be greeted by tranquillity and idyllic surroundings. The banks of the five lakes stretch for more than 100 km, and there is practically no limit to the water sports available.
You get to know this region through sport or relaxing, by exploring nature, culture and hospitality; on foot, cycling or a bird’s eye view from a balloon; whether on Germany’s highest mountain, the Zugspitze, or in the regional capital Munich, whether in silence and at ease before the grandiose backdrop of the Alps or through culture at the opera or theatre.
Whether easygoing hospitality in the pubs with beer gardens in relaxing surroundings or noisy parties in one of Munich’s famous bars or discotheques, nowhere do you find so many different impressions – indeed worlds – so close together and in harmony with each other.more about this holiday destination
