    We should happy here to live in the vicinity of Lake of season. The Lake and its facilities are just a dream for locals and visitors. Lake hike (easy hike, about 23 km, usually on the ground floor and also if you like the long line with strollers can). The trail runs from Murnauer Bay advance largely in the shadows, later in the area of the upper Lake through light Moor area, then through a well-developed road after Uffing - and then to Murnau. From Uffing, it is scenic, to go back to the starting point with the MS Salemeh (journey runs every hour, about 45 minutes). With the wheel - perfect. Simple beautiful tour, duration approx. 1-1.5 hrs for the whole tour. Detour or variations of the route (to bad Kohlgrub, in the Murnauer Moos, after Germany) etc. whenever possible. Easy difficulty level. Weekends usually well visited the trail, so beware of oncoming traffic. The Lake: bathing in the Sea Resorts Uffing or Murnau, or but free to the Murnauer Bay or from time to time on the lake shore to the walk. Various hire of boats, SUPs etc. in Murnau / Uffing available. Dining by the Lake? Uffing - view of the Alps! The most beautiful beer garden in the Oberland! In Murnau: kiosk in the Bay (super Currywurst) or in addition the Lido in the same swimming pool. Winter? Autumn? Always a dream of the Staffelsee Lake, and when it gets really cold with possibility for ice skating or ice walking across the Lake.

    The beautiful season Lake is something for everyone. Cyclists and hikers, Badebegeisterte and water sports (all without a motor boat) come at their expense. The resorts are small but not crowded despite mid-season, the staff friendly and the scenery terrific. Just relax and relax.
