Rose Island | Germany

Rose Island (Roseninsel in German) lies in Lake Starnberg, Germany's fifth largest freshwater lake. The island with its small villa, the "Casino", and a rose garden, was one of the favourite places of Ludwig II of Bavaria.

In June 2011, over 100 selected archaeological sites in several countries were declared UNESCO World Heritage site, inscribed under the name of "Prehistoric pile dwellings around the Alps". The pile dwelling sites in Lake Starnberg, together with other remains of settlements, represent an archaeological heritage which dates back to 5000 BC.
