About the property

Incredible apartment right on the lake with a 180° view of the lake and the Alps.

This exceptional and beautifully furnished apartment on the second and last floor of a multi-party villa with direct lake access offers a large south-west facing balcony with a 180° view of the lake and the Alps. Here you can enjoy the spectacular atmosphere of the lake and romantic sunsets. There's always something to look at, be it the sailboats passing by or swaying in the wind, passengers boarding the ferries or the windsurfers and kiters carving in the water. The lake sometimes appears wild, sometimes gentle - and in the evening the flickering of the waves reflect on the ceiling of kitchen.

Relax and enjoy, living, cooking, dining, sleeping or even working: all with a view of the lake. There are TVs in the living room, in the two bedrooms and in the lounge area of ​​the gallery and Wi-Fi throughout the apartment. There's a stereo with DAB tuner and Bluetooth and USB connection in the living room.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you need for the preparation of hot and cold meals and drinks: fridge, freezer, ceran stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave, espresso machine, toaster, kettle and blender. The pots and pans, cutlery and cutting block are from WMF, the dishes from Villeroy & Boch.

Comfortable leather sofas and chairs, attractive, indirect lighting and powerful pictures create the perfect atmosphere. The lake, the sun, wind and clouds create a changing, breathtaking scenery.

The two bedrooms are equipped with high quality box spring double beds. In the master bedroom, a small desk overlooks the lake. This bedroom has direct access to the bathroom, and has its own small balcony. The bedroom on the gallery level offers a large walk-in closet.

The newly renovated bathroom with floor heating has a "walk-in shower", bath, bidet and toilet. A large sink with a spacious cabinet completes the furnishings. A separate WC is available for guests.

In a small storage room you will find a vacuum cleaner, broom, ladder, and other household goods. There is also room for beverage crates and other stock. The washing machine and clothes dryer are located in the laundry room in the basement.

An easily accessible parking space is available in front of the house. Another parking spot is available in the underground garage. Since the commuter train station is only a 6-minute walk away, however, you do not necessarily need a car. The S8 train runs directly from the airport or downtown Munich to Herrsching. Shops and supermarkets for everyday needs are also within walking distance.

Leisure: you will find numerous restaurants, taverns, cafes and bistros to the left and right of the apartment along Germany's longest lake promenade (10 km) that runs directly in front of the house. A few metres away, you can rent boats, other water sports equipment or bicycles. There is also a mini golf course only 450 m south of the apartment. A park with Herrsching's little castle and tennis courts is 300 m in the other direction.

The cultural metropolis Munich is easily accessible with the S8 commuter train or by car in about the same time. The ski resort in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitze in the Bavarian Alps can be reached within about an hour.

About Stephan Hassenbach

Stephan Hassenbach and Family.

I grew up in Canada and have been living for more than 20 years with my family in Bavaria. We have been living near Lake Starnberg for more than 10 years, only a few kilometres away from Lake Ammersee. The region is beautiful and diverse. It offers the natural beauty of the lakes and Alps, leisure, hospitality, culture and a vibrant city nearby.

Stephan Hassenbach purchased this villa in 2015

Why Stephan Hassenbach chose Herrsching

The location of the apartment directly on the lake and thereby so central is spectacular. What's more is the character, the charisma of the apartment with its large, extraordinary windows, the high, open rooms and the large gallery.

What makes this villa unique

Located directly on the lake with a view of the lake and the Alps, in the middle of the city of Herrsching, the docks for the tourist ships (100 m) and the commuter train to Munich and the airport (450 m) nearby. Remarkable architecture with lovely, first class furnishings.

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful well maintained two bedroom apartment is perfectly located in the best location in Herrsching overlooking the lake with the promenade right outside your front door. From the minute we booked this apartment for two couples, the owner was incredibly prompt and thoughtful with the communication. He accommodated our arrival, welcomed us warmly, and provided us with very useful and complete information regarding our stay. (This was truly exceptional service!) The apartment itself is very well appointed and worked very well for two couples as it has two bedrooms and one and a half baths. The pictures and the listing are completely accurate so you know exactly what you will be getting during your stay. It is very comfortable and nicely decorated with many conveniences. The apartment is perfectly located close to local shops and restaurants as well as the train station into Munich so you really could do without a car if you wanted to. We did have a vehicle and had access to an outdoor or underground parking stall which we used. The modern kitchen is well equipped with all the equipment and tools you will need for making casual meals. We tended to eat breakfast in and then have supper at one of the recommended restaurants in the area. The location of the apartment was very convenient for going to Neuschwanstein, Dachau, Andech's Abbey, Mittenwald, Garmisch-Partenkinkirschen, Munich, Starnberg, and many other sites in the Bavarian region. We did take the train into Marienplatz in Munich (as suggested by the owner) and the train was easy to take and took away any of the hassles of parking in a busy city centre. But just enjoying the pleasures of walking the promenade and having a beverage at one of the various outdoor establishments overlooking the lake might be our favourite memory. Overall, we have stayed at a number of HomeAway or VRBO properties in Europe, Canada, and the United States, and I can honestly say that the property and the service provided by the owner is right at the top. A week is really not enough in this part of the world - and at this beautiful property -- so plan accordingly.

Simply Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

You might not think of the Ammersee when visiting Bavaria but this place was perfect. An easy train ride to Munich and a beautiful drive through the country side to visit all the castles in the area. Best of all you come back to these fantastic sunsets, walks on the promenade , lovely restaurants and you very own villa. The villa is as beautiful as the photos and filled with wonderful little touches that make you feel at home. Stephen is a great host from the first contact to meeting us there and the incredible orientation book he has created. I have stayed at many vacation rentals and have never seen such a comprehensive book! He was in contact with us all though our stay. 5 stars maybe too low for this beautiful property!

Absolutely perfect location and apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful apartment and with amazing view and location on Ammersee - wow!! Stephan communicated with us so well from the booking day through the last day of our vacation. While we were in Germany - we were able to communicate with him via Whatsapp. Stephan met us at the apartment, made us feel at home immediately, and walked us through giving us detailed information. Very clean and stylish apartment!! Perfect balcony with incredible views of the lake. So close to the S-Bahn to go to Munich or anywhere in Germany. Walking distance to many great restaurants, cafes, grocery shops, bars, Etc, Andechs, the ferry that takes you around the lake, and so many other options. We only went into Munich 3 times during our 10 day visit ... Because we never wanted to leave Herrsching and the apartment :-)) The boardwalk in front of the apartment is fantastic with great bars, beautiful walk ... Bier gardens ... Cafes ... Boat rentals.

We HIGHLY recommend this apartment! Stephan - Thank you for everything!! Marlis, Matt, Jim, and Heidi

Fantastic property

I stayed here about a week in September and the property exceeded our expectations. It's a great location, well equipped and certainly as advertised. I can't think of a reason to be disappointed with this property. Stephan was a pleasure to work with as well.

Beautiful Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow...what a wonderful place. We had a fabulous time at this tranquil lakeside apartment. My wife and I have stayed at several places and we have to say that by far this is one of the best! The decor, the linens, the dishes, the amenities, everything was very well thought out. We've already purchased a DeLonghi Nespresso machine like we had at the apartment because we loved it so much! Stephen was a wonderful host and met us at the apartment upon our arrival to go through operations. He was available via email and responded quickly to answer any questions we had. The location was perfect with restaurants, grocery stores, deli's, shops, beer gardens, boat rentals, bicycle rentals, the ferry, and train station, all within a 5 minute walk. Had wonderful meals at Steg 32, Seehof Biergarten, Ristorante Seespitz Da Mario and ordered pizza to go from Restaurant Promenade Herrsching to eat on the bulkhead and watch the sunset. It's a great central location to take day trips to Munich City Center, Neuschwanstein Castle, Andechs Monastery Brewery etc. You can swim in the lake, go for a stroll on the boardwalk or just sit on the deck and take it all in! Spectacular vacation. Thank you Stephan for sharing your slice of paradise!

Owner's Response: And we have to say wow, too! Thanks for the kudos. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay and had a chance to enjoy Herrsching, the lake as well as the surroundings. We love the place, too: the tranquility of the lakeside together with the proximity to the city and all it has to to offer is a unique combination, we find. Should you ever be back in the area, please do give us a call. We'd love to welcome you as our guests again!
