Only a few kilometers from our hotel, Lake Starnberg glitters in the northwest, the uniquely beautiful string of pearls of the Easter Lakes in the west, and the Alps rise in the south. Here – in the middle of the foothills of the Alps – the golf course Iffeldorf and St. Eurach are located in a gently undulating hilly landscape. The golfing grounds of both courses extend over generous areas, interspersed with forests and ancient oak trees, small lakes and biotopes. Wherever you are, the magnificent alpine panorama from the Karwendel over the Wetterstein mountains to the Zugspitze presents itself in constantly new, impressive perspectives.
Well-kept facilities with a high level of comfort characterize the golf courses. In Iffeldorf, a special 10-minute start time regulation ensures guaranteed “jam-free” play. In St. Eurach, the BMW International Open has already been held several times on the challenging championship course.
Both courses have excellent gastronomy and invite you to linger. A trained team will fulfill your individual wishes.

Lake Starnberg at the foothills of the Alps is one of the most important recreational areas of the Pfaffenwinkel. Also called Fürstensee, it is Bavaria’s second largest lake with 21 km length, up to 5 km width and 127 m depth. Places like Seeshaupt, Antdorf, Habach & Sindelsdorf were able to preserve their rural character and offer a hinterland of unspoiled beauty.
Near Iffeldorf is the nature reserve Osterseen, a unique high moor landscape consisting of 19 small lakes, the “tears” of Lake Starnberg.
The enchanted landscape stretching to the south of Lake Starnberg, formed by the Würmtal glacier during the last ice age, is captivating with its gentle hills from which one can look down on the entire mountain range of the Bavarian Alps and with its dark forests hiding a multitude of moorland meadows and small lakes.
The former mining town of Penzberg as a regional business location forms a lively and successful contrast to this. In the immediate vicinity is the baroque Benediktbeuern Monastery, today a widely known educational institution.
Unknown for a long time, the lakes developed into a recreational paradise for the people of Munich. Today – after the Easter Lakes have been declared a protected landscape area – the former peace and tranquility has largely returned. In the series “Pictures of a Landscape”, Gabriele Dinsenbacher’s film shows the enchanted little world of the lakes: in the beer garden of Hohenkasten, in Hohenberg Castle with the Princesses of Thurn and Taxis, at the ox race of Münsing, in the wonderfully situated clinic “Lauterbacher Mühle”, in the baroque pilgrimage church Maria im Heuwinkl near Iffeldorf or the nursery of Weidenkam Castle are some of the stations of this late summer picture tour “Around the Easter Lakes”.
