Lake Chiemsee, Bavaria

4.8
#12 of 39 in Nature in Bavaria
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.

    Beautiful day and the right way for us to enjoy Lake Chiemsee: on the boat. We have chosen the tour "Grand Tour" which allows both the two islands that a long tour (1.5 h) to the East side of the great Lake for a bargain price. A tip: you can skip the ticket office if you can pay cash right on the boat. If you make the Grand Tour, plan well the coincidence.

    We were driving from Salzburg to Munich, and stopping for a day trip to see Schloss Herrenchiemsee seemed like a good way to break the journey up. A lot of people visiting the lake come for day trips ...  more »

    The chiem Lake is one of the hotspots during the visit of the Chiemgau! The promenades around the Lake you arrive when the weather in the Bavarian sky!
