- This beautiful lake, about 35km south-west of Munich, is a favourite weekend refuge for city folk. Its location, between two tree-covered mountains, is idyllic and is perfect not just for swimming, but also for hiking, rowing, sailing and fishing. It is well worth treating yourself to a trip on the steamer (info: Staatliche Schiffahrt Ammersee, tel: +49 8143 940 21). The nearby Klostergasthof Andechs attracts hoards of visitors with its delicious beer and historic monastery. You could round off the day in one of the traditional bars or restaurants in Herrsching or Inning. Getting there: Take the Autobahn Lindau and exit towards Herrsching through Weßling and Seefeld.
