Germany’s largest, and arguably most luscious, lake allures visitors with its serene and shimmering surface and rich cultural panorama. Submerged monuments, opulent villas and stunning landscapes are just a small selection of the village’s lakeside lures. Bathe in the healing waters, recline upon the verdant shores or explore the surrounding villages in order to discover the rich selection of historic monuments that reside there; however you decide to spend your serene sojourn, you’re sure to leave this luscious lakeside village feeling enamoured and enriched.
Remarkable Rose Island
Floating in the midst of the shimmering lake is an intriguing island that harbours a fine example of imperial majesty. Upon Rose Island resides a 19th century villa that was commissioned by the revered King Maximillian. Secluded and serene, the villa boasts blossoming rose gardens, a glittering gold monument and a delightfully decorated façade.
Boasting the title of a UNESCO world heritage site due to their curious nature, the monuments at the bottom of the lake represent an architectural heritage that dates back to 5000 BC. Archaeologists discovered the remains during an excavation of the lake, which revealed prehistoric pile dwellings from a truly ancient time.
For a gorgeously gourmet experience in a lovely lakeside setting, visit the Gourmet restaurant Aubergine. The interior of this exquisite eatery is reflective of its name, with deep purple accessories complimenting a gentle palette of neutral tones. Perfectly presented food defies culinary conventions with its esoteric ingredients and fabulous flair.(Münchnerstraße 17, 82319 Starnberg, Germany )
