One thought on “Pure relaxation at the Ammersee

  1. One of the nice things to do at Ammersee is to use the regular steamers for a round trip, e.g. go from Stegen to Diessen, see the Marienmünster Abbey there, head over to Herrsching to stroll on the promenade, and then back to Stegen for a sundowner.
