La Villa Starnberger See
The historic villa, located directly on the shore of Lake Starnberg, was built by the Munich merchant Angelo Knorr in 1855. It was planned and executed in Maximilian style by Arnold Zenetti, the well-known Munich building surveyor. It served its owners as a summer residence where life was enjoyed and celebrated. Unusual and unique in its architecture, the villa has an exposed brick façade and the cast-iron altars, which were new at the time. As a representative symbol, the Belvedere Tower is reminiscent of a Tuscan country villa. The large English park landscape around the villa, which reached its largest extension in 1866 with an area of 18.9 hectares, was one of the most extensive parks on Lake Starnberg with a bank length of almost 850 meters. According to the division of the inheritance, just under 1.4 hectares around the villa are still preserved.
