Discover one of the most beautiful regions in Germany, located south of the provincial capital of Munich and just before the Upper-Bavarian Alps: the Fünfseenland (five-lakes region). The five lakes lie embedded amongst gentle hills, from which this region gets its name: the Starnberger See, Ammersee, Wörthsee, Pilsensee and the Weßlinger See. However, the Fünfseenland includes other smaller lakes as well. If one were to count them all, one would easily come up with 19 lakes in all. And very nearby, the Bavarian Alps: when visibility is good, one can see the Karwendel mountain range, the Benediktenwand and the Zugspitze.
For many centuries, the Fünfseenland has been a popular vacation, bathing and travel destination with many extraordinary sites of interest. Ideal for all sporting activities. It offers not only beautiful lakes for swimming; it’s a paradise for sailing and surfing as well. Golfers have a choice between eight 18-hole courses and an indoor course. And for those who prefer things a bit more peaceful, there are numerous opportunities for fishing.
