Herrsching am Ammersee Things to Do

  • Ammersee Boat Ride

    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...

  • Walk to Andechs

    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...

  • Enjoyment for Body and Soul

    "Genuss für Leib und Seele" (Enjoyment for Body and Soul) is the motto of the Andechs Monastery's "Bräustuberl." While not as much of a secret as it was when I first came here 20 years ago (that long??), it is certainly worth the effort to get here. My favorite way to get here is to hike (about 1 hour light hiking) from Herrsching. While I...

  • Nice Bavarian Restaurant

    It was raining heavily on our final evening in Herrsching, so it seemed like an ideal time to try the hotel's restaurant. The ambiance was dark and woody, the service was pleasant, and the food was well-prepared, tasty, and reasonably priced. There appeared to be a number of locals (or at least non-guests of the hotel) eating here; the place got...

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Herrsching has the distinct advantage of being accessible by Munich's public transportation system. The suburban commuter railway, or S-Bahn, connects you to downtown Munich. In fact, Herrsching is the last stop on the S-8 line. A trip to or from the city takes 40-45 minutes, with trains departing every 20-40 minutes.

    If you are traveling to Herrsching from outside Munich, you can save time by using your transportation options smartly. For example, if you are arriving at Munich Airport and want to go to Herrsching, you can either take the S-1 from the airport, changing at Laim for the S-8 to Herrsching, or take the S-8 from the airport all the way to Herrsching. If you are arriving by train from the west, get off at Munich-Pasing station to change for the S-8 instead of staying on until the Hauptbahnhof (this could save you up to 40 minutes on your trip).

    Prices: a 1-way ticket from Munich to or from Herrsching costs EUR 10.40 (or EUR 10 using a "stripe ticket" or other "non-cash" option). But normally, your best deal is to purchase a "Tageskarte Gesamtnetz," valid for the entire day on the whole Munich public transport system. A "single" day card costs EUR 11.70, while a "partner" day card (valid for up to 5 people) costs EUR 21.30. The "Bayern Ticket" (valid on all local trains throughout Bavaria as well as the entire Munich transport system) also works on the S-Bahn; this ticket costs EUR 23 for a "single" ticket and an additional EUR 4 for each traveler traveling together up to 5 (EUR 2 surcharge if you purchase it at a ticket counter as opposed to a machine). Eurail, Selectpasses, and German Rail passes are also valid for the S-Bahn, but not U-Bahn, trams, or buses.

    Not far from our encounter with the cat, we came across a curious sight: a robot lawn mower. It was contentedly driving about the lawn, munching on grass. We didn't wait for long, but it seemed to be working fairly well. I wonder how it interacts with the cat? ...
