A real Bavarian restaurant, hotel and beer garden in Herrsching at Ammersee

Ammersee - Lake Ammer

The Ammersee is located 35 kilometres south-west of Munich in the most beautiful Bavarian alpine uplands. It is not only a lovely lake for swimming, but also a sailing and windsurfing paradise.

Nestled between gentle hills, the lake offers a view onto a vast panorama of the Alps, in which centre the Zugspitze rises.

With a length of 16 kilometres and a width of 6 kilometres, when combined with favourable wind conditions, the Ammersee is a major sailing area.

Together with its natural reserves, Ammersee is one of the seven internationally important wetlands in Bavaria by the so-called Ramsar Convention. The great lakeshores are in near-natural condition and perfect for swimming, walking and cycling.

Those wishing to fully experience the Ammersee are recommended to take a boat trip on one of the nostalgic paddle steamers.

The northern tip of Ammersee can be reached via highway A96 Lindau-Munich. The rapid transit railway (line S8) connects Herrsching directly with Munich.
