Chiemsee – divine peace on a lake

87 km from Munich Airport

While it may only be the third-largest lake in Germany, the inhabitants of the region surrounding Chiemsee are very proud of their lake, considered one of the most beautiful in Bavaria. Hire a SUP board, swim in the pleasant lake waters or set off by bicycle along the attractive cycle path. Take a boat to Herreninsel, the island on which Ludwig II of Bavaria built the great royal palace of Herrenchiemsee, with its large garden modelled on Versailles. Also very interesting is a trip to Krautinsel, a small island on which many bird species make their nests. A boat will also take you to the idyllic little island of Fraueninsel. The beautiful flower and herb gardens on this island have inspired the artistic creations of many poets and painters. The island is also home to a Benedictine nunnery, so be sure to stop at the convent shop and choose one of the hand-made marzipan products made by the nuns.
