  • In the Augustinian monastery, the baroque monastery complex, called also old Castle, there are nowadays many museum rooms. In addition to the Constitution Museum, which documents the creation of the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany, the facility houses Ludwig II of Bavaria also galleries of painters at the Chiemsee and the former - held rather simple - living quarters. But interesting is also the history of the monastery, which is considered to be the oldest in Bavaria. A highlight of the Augustinian monastery and the Baroque State rooms, the Emperor's Hall and the garden room, with its rich decorations and wall and ceiling paintings are absolutely worth seeing. Worth a visit, and on the way to the Castle business you automatically will pass at the entrance to the Augustinian monastery.

  • Formerly Augustinian monastery, today the Alte Schloss, partly Baroque Museum and exhibition complex. Particularly precious is the library room, frescoed and decorated with stucco. Close to the small church of Santa Maria convent, in late Gothic style.
