Starnberg Lake - between Munich and the Alps

Possenhofen is located to the south of Starnberg, directly on Starnberg Lake. The Hostel grounds are separated from the lake by a spacious park. The park was originally a part of Possenhofen castle. Today, it is a recreational area, which is used not only by Hostel guests.
