Thinking of traveling in September and considering flying into Munich and immediately taking a train to a picturesque lakeside town. There I would like to stay for several days, right at the water, with restaurants nearby (maybe in the hotel) and nice views. If possible, a lake steamer stop nearby would be great. Can't walk very far, thus it's important that amenities are close. I've looked at Prien am Chiemsee, especially since it's sort of halfway to Salzburg from Munich. However, I would love to get personal recommendations for other lakeside towns/hotels. It would be nice if there were an attractive downtown area, reachable by public transportation. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. I've been to Nuernberg and Munich but no other places in Bavaria.
I plan to post this in the Austria forum, as well. I'm sure there must be beautiful lakeside places there, too.
