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.

  • Wonderful pacific place to visit alone or with family.Posibility to rent a boat and to explore the view from the lake.  more »
  • Even on a cold day or rainy, there is the guarantee of a terrific show; the landscape is indeed breathtaking even saw the car while you along the Lake. Locals are also very welcoming and gracious with tourists so in case you get lost and not find a hotel for the night as it happened to us, they will help you with the heart (they failed even for August during a music festival).
