An excursion from Munich to the islands of Bavaria's Chiemsee. You will see the grand palace of King Ludwig II, a 19th-century tribute to Versailles, and enjoy the calm of the fascinating Fraueninsel, with its picturesque monastery.
What to Expect
On the Herreninsel, the largest island in Bavaria's largest lake, the Chiemsee, you will visit one of the most imposing sights in the whole of the state: the grandiose Herrenchiemsee Palace of King Ludwig II, the builder of Neuschwanstein. The palace was built in imitation of the Palace of Versailles build by France's Louis XIV, whom Ludwig held in the highest esteem.
Afterwards, the boat will take you onwards to the lovely, car-free Fraueninsel. There you will have time for lunch and a tour of the island's fascinating sights, including the Carolingian gatehouse, one of the oldest buildings in Germany, the 2,000-year-old tree, and the Benedictine nunnery, with its famous home-made liqueur.
The trip to Herrenchiemsee and the Fraueninsel will acquaint you with two of Bavaria's most beautiful and interesting spots. Come along on an excursion fit for a king!
