Cruising Around Lake Starnberg

A few days ago, mum and I embarked on a little excursion to the beautiful city of Starnberg, which is right beside the Starnberger See (Lake Starnberg). Bavaria is studded with lakes, they are the remnants of the glaciers that melted away at the end of the last ice age. The lakes are very deep, with crystal-clear turquoise blue water, and very popular for boating and swimming.

We took a boat ride around the northern half of the lake.

Rose Island, lake Starnberg’s only island. The King of Bavaria and the Empress of Austria used to meet there for …erm… extracurricular activities…
The King drowned himself in the lake in 1886.
