  • 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.

  • slow boat ride around the lake 80 mins and only 10 Euros, stop off for lunch or stay on board for coffee and light lunch  more »
  • 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.

  • awsome munchen's place for outing
  • The Staffelsee is not vain Murnau in a nature reserve; where it is necessary to protect nature is usually particularly worthy of protection (this set is missing a lot of commas, who finds it all, may like to keep them ;-)). Hiking in beautiful surroundings delight the hikers heart while about him - if he's lucky - rare birds of prey circling. Don't forget photo equipment!

  • Here can you enjoy life in a romantic location on the Lake, quiet and calm in nature, if not exactly fly the loud strong drones over a, which is very annoying for the bathers. That would be really banned.

  • A nice place to relax - even if the Lake naturally attracts a mass of people.
