Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria

(4.8/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Nice place for picnic and walking and also swimming in winter. Nice view of the lake, trees and the mountains. 
  • At the end of our autumnal Lake tour through the Bavarian foothills of the Alps, we have chosen us the Chiemsee. The third largest lake of in Germany is a dream, crystal clear water and a breathtaking panorama. There is so much to discover and see, so a day trip is just too short. Here you can experience a beautiful piece of Germany.
