Outdoor Activity
The smallest municipality in all of Bavaria, Fraueninsel (also known as Frauenchiemsee)--a small, car-free island--spans only 12 hectares (30 acres) and has approximately 250 inhabitants and just over 50 houses. Take a ferry to the island, and then go on a leisurely, 20-minute walk along the quiet shoreline of Lake Chiemsee. A monastery founded in 782 CE+F46, open to visitors, covers nearly one-third of the island. Pick up some of the famous Kloster liquor, which is produced by the monastery's nuns. Put Fraueninsel at the forefront of your travel plans using our Fraueninsel im Chiemsee vacation generator.
