Beautiful structure on the lake. Unfortunately we did not have enough time to visit all the floors but it's really worth it. I loved the expressionist paintings.

Very interesting museum at the Starnberger Museum. The location is great, the history of the museum and which cities it declined it is interesting and the exhibition itself is very diverse and a lot of times very funny. We were very much positively surprised!
