The present work, Ammersee #3, refers to the German name for Lake Ammer in Upper Bavaria, Germany, southwest of Munich between the towns of Herrsching and Dießen am Ammersee - the sixth largest lake in Germany. (Like other Bavarian lakes, Ammersee developed as a result of the ice age glaciers melting.)
