Mountain Biking Highlight
The Ammersee - Bavaria's third largest lake - is a popular bathing and recreational destination, especially from the Munich catchment area. The lake offers numerous recreational opportunities, such as swimming, fishing, sailing, windsurfing, shipping, hiking and mountain biking - there is something for every taste.
The nature and its enormous biodiversity around the Ammersee are preserved by the designated Ramsar protected area with its four nature protection areas. Especially bird lovers get their money's worth on the Ammersee. In the "bird sanctuary Ammersee south shore" live endangered species of birds such as the tit-tit and the Pupurherher. The "Ampermoos" in the north of the lake is considered the largest German breeding area for lapwings.
A hike to the monastery Andechs is a pleasure, especially in the summer, because the coolness of the monastery offers a welcome change on hot days. It takes about two hours to walk from Herrsching. Easily walkable paths lead through a forest area.
