Lido steeped in tradition in Feldafing
The historic lido in Feldafing on Lake Starnberg has been around since 1927. Whereas the changing rooms are still the same, the lawn and restaurant are modern additions.
Feldafing has been attracting tourists since the middle of the 19th Century. Its location between Munich and Garmisch with fields sloping down towards Lake Starnberg and views of the "Roseninsel" across the water make it a particularly attractive spot. That's why, in 1927, the community decided to build the Feldafing Lido right next to the lake, complete with an alpine view. These days, the sand that was once strewn along the 100-metre stretch by the water has been removed. Instead, it has been replaced with lush grass beckoning visitors to unwind or to bathe in the lake. The changing rooms and entrance hall, however, are still exactly the same as they were 90 years ago. And they are the reason that the lido has been a protected historical building since 1973, together with 15 other lidos in Bavaria. Although the lido has been around for quite a while, it remains an insider's tip. Whereas other lidos on Lake Starnberg are often over-crowded, in this place, you're guaranteed to find some peace and quiet. As well as swimming, those who like a lot of physical activity can also play beach volleyball. For the toddlers, there's a sandpit and a non-swimmer area with a water slide and a lifeguard. The lido also has a restaurant with three terraces offering a wide selection of pizzas and other specialities, such as regional sausages with pretzels.
