    Ammersee Boat Ride

    An Ammerse lake boat arrives
    4 more images

    One activity that looked like lots of fun was to take a boat ride on the Ammersee. The boat departs the Herrsching dock several times a day from mid-April through mid-October. You can purchase various round-trips, or use the boat as transportation to get to the other side of the lake. In fact, we planned a scenic detour en route to Lindau by taking the boat from Herrsching to Diessen, then a regional train to Geltendorf, then on to Lindau. Unfortunately we awoke to heavy rain and dense fog, so we took the more conventional S-Bahn to Pasing and connected to our Lindau train.

    As of 2014, fare is EUR 17 for a "grand tour," EUR 13.80 for a "northern round trip," and EUR 10.50 for a "southern round trip." There are discounts for large groups, as well as a 10% discount with an MVV Tageskarte (Gesamtnetz or Aussenraum), CityTourCard (though note this more expensive ticket gives you no greater discount than a standard MVVV Tageskarte), Bayern Ticket, or Werdenfels Ticket. You might also get a discount with a railpass if you smile and ask nicely. Then again, you might not.

    Walk to Andechs

    We have Alps!
    4 more images

    A very pleasant option is to walk uphill from Herrsching to the village of Andechs. An added advantage: in Andechs, you have a fine monastery that brews magnificent beer. There are also bus options to get back down the hill should the weather turn bad (or you consume a beer too many... ;)

    There are two paths to get to Andechs: one via the "Horndlweg," and one via the "Kiental." The former is a bit longer (roughly 1 hour and 15 minutes), but has better views in clear weather-- sometimes with views of the Alps! UPDATE: When we walked the path in May 2008, the Alps were indeed out! Enjoy the new photos! 8). The Kiental path takes about an hour. It's a more woody path following the stream and with a long walk along a pleasant pasture. Sometimes, the cows will come out to check on your progress.

    The Ammersee

    Herrsching has a very pleasant walking path along the Ammersee. Even if the weather is cloudy (or even a bit rainy), it's worthwhile to take the time and wander along the shore. The views are enjoyable, even if clouds are overhead.
