Ammersee

Ammersee

At 47 km², the Ammersee (Lake Ammer) is the third largest lake in Bavaria. It is part of the "Fünfseenland" (five-lakes-country), along with Lake Starnberg, Wörthsee, Pilsensee, and Weßlinger Lake. Because of the continual silting process, which has caused the lake to shrink to a quarter of its original size over the last 20.000 years, the countryside around the lake has an abundance of birds, including some endangered species. Along its 42km of coastline, the Ammersee offers plenty of activities for bathers, sailers, surfers, and hikers. A particular treat is the "holy mountain" of Andechs with its numerous Bavarian relics and speciality beers.

Pilsensee

Pilsensee is the youngest of the lakes that make up the five-lakes-country and also the second smallest, after Weßlinger Lake. Several thousand years ago, Pilsensee was part of the original Ammersee, but it was separated by the sinking water level and became a lake of its own. The stretch of land which emerged is just 1.5 km wide and is made up of large areas covered in reeds. This nature reserve is called "Herrschinger Moor". The natural environment around the lake is excellent for long hikes or bike tours.

Unterschleißheimer See

This artificial lake was made in 1979/1980, as a result of the extraction of rubble to build the Autobahn. Over the last 20 years it has almost become a natural lake, with an ecologically balanced zone, a conservation area for seabirds during nesting season, and a humid biotope covering 9,5 ha (26 acres) of land, of which roughly 6,5 ha (18 acres) can be used for sunbathing. Families with children especially enjoy this lake, as small children have plenty of room to play and practice in the numerous shallow areas. In the winter, the lake is often frozen, providing visitors with a place to skate, slide, or play the German winter game of Eisstockschießen (curling).

Weßlinger See

Weßlinger See

Only 500m in diameter, Lake Weßling is the smallest of Starnberg's five lakes. It's located close to Munich between the municipalities of Weßling and Oberpfaffenhofen. The conifers and deciduous trees, as well as the picturesque boat-houses, cafés, and beer gardens are worth a daytrip at any time of year. The only drawback to this recreational area is the quality of the water. As Lake Weßling's only source of water is an underground spring, swimming in the lake was forbidden until a few years ago. Bathing is now allowed again, thanks to an oxygenator in the center of the lake.
