Toward the southern tip, you will come to the lake’s largest town, the health resort known as Dießen am Ammersee, surrounded by woods and moors. Stop here to take in museums, art collections, theaters, and 18th-century Baroque and Rococo churches.
West of the lake, you will come to the district seat of Landsberg am Lech. This romantic town combines Bavarian traditions with contemporary living, medieval walls with stylish cafés and bistros.
Further north up the Lech is the town called Kaufering, noted for its grotto-like spa and cosmopolitan performing arts, including opera, classic symphonies, ice follies, comedies and stage plays.
It is easy to see why so many vacationers come back again and again to the “feel good” Landsberg District.
