Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria
(4.8/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Formed about 10,000 years ago by a glacier, Lake Chiemsee features crystal-clear waters and many great spots for recreation along its shores. For something other than water sports or hiking, take the ferry to visit the islands--the biggest one features a castle modeled after the Palace of Versailles, along with beautiful gardens and fountains. Take a tour of the palace, and then catch a horse-drawn carriage back to the ferry terminal. The smaller island is home to a Benedictine nunnery that dates back to 782, where the nuns make marzipan and a special liquor. After a visit to the nunnery, stroll around the island and perhaps enjoy a traditional meal.

  • The Lake is quite large, with several islands competing in things to visit. The largest and most visited is the Herreninsel, with an old Augustinian monastery, today a Palace and other more modern which is most is visited. Only this island already requires you to more than two hours, so we could not visit the second in importance, which is the Fraueninsel with its monastery for women.

  • Holiday at Chiemsee is always great and the weather almost incidental. The Lake and the whole Chiemgau offer so many possibilities for every taste whether sporting or cultural, culinary or shopping. Just the soul dangle goes anyway! We are once a year most definitely there, sometimes even a second time, there was never bored!
