Fraueninsel, Fraueninsel im Chiemsee

#13 of 106 in Outdoors in Upper Bavaria
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.

    I highly recommend the island of women. It is a small quiet island in the Chiemsee. We made the rounds on foot, it's very nice and food is good too.

    Definitely worth a visit. That because the island is not particularly large seen quickly about. Very beautiful typical houses and many restaurants. As expected are the prices for food and drinks very high.

    The small island is the bezaubernste place on Lake Chiemsee. Due to the favourable climate, the flowers bloom profusely, even wine is grown. About a 15-minute walk, you can completely around the island and admire the well-kept gardens. Many restaurants and cafés invite you to linger. Through the history of the island as a colony of artists, invite some of the galleries and the famous pottery of island to visit. Also in the monastery shop gifts for loved ones can be purchased at home. An insider's tip is the island marzipan
