Fraueninsel, Fraueninsel im Chiemsee

(4.6/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
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.

  • We decided on a beautiful winter day to visit the Chiemsee with its men's and ladies island. The shipping was nice and quickly over. The Herreninsel is large, quiet, and very green. The castle is impressive and beautifully situated. The island represents the exact opposite. It is densely built up and lively. Download here many small cafés, restaurants and shops to the stay a. It was a beautiful day.

  • What can I say. It is everything, and much in one. Place of pilgrimage, historic centre until the earliest Middle Ages, a place for artists and those you mean. There's good food and beautiful views. There is even a high-tech company for carbon fiber boats with Hochleistungselektroantrieb, the German car manufacturer advises. Yes go ' just hi, when's no place like n. Good weather and weekend and summer is's woe. Occur in late fall or much during the week, when the weather Easter. Incidentally, when the sun shines you can admire and the Luftwaffe during the flyby.
