Starnberg is located south of Munich directly on Lake Starnberg and can easily be reached with the public transportation system (trains). This is a benefit if you stay in Munich and do not want to drive.
The town has the reputation that many wealthy people live there.
Lizzy and I became expert window shoppers in Starnberg. She thought that everything was a little more exotic and it always brought a smile to my face to see her so excited with little things that were normal to me. It started with articles of clothing,
such as dresses and sweaters, moved on to jewelry, perfumes, cosmetics, but never excluded the traditional Dirndl and Lederhosen. S he even browsed for hours through books she could not read but got great enjoyment out of the pictures. Paintings, shoes and all kinds of gift ware were in a class of their own. Usually, her only purchases were postcards and stamps. She wrote the cards when we had the mandatory coffee and cheese cake.
Despite the fact that Elizabeth loved everything what she saw and experienced she must have been also homesick. She always tried to recognize tourists from North America, always straining to hear if English was spoken. I Must admit, she had some success with it.

You can start a leisurely boat trip from Starnberg or if you are more inclined join on a weekend a more extended cruise offering dancing and partying on board. I am not a dancer and we missed that. Please contact a tourist office for actual information.
If you are interested in learning how people lived in past times, we recommend a visit to the local "Heimatmuseum" which is now called "Museum Starnberger See".
It is interesting - even on a sunny day!
