Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria

4.8
#12 of 39 in Nature in Bavaria
Water Body Nature / Park
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.
