What You'll Do
  • Take an old-fashioned “lake train”
  • Experience the beautiful Chiemsee lake by boat
  • Visit the lovely Benedictine convent on Fraueninsel
  • Visit the wonderful Herrenchiemsee palace on Herreninsel, built by “mad” King Ludwig II
  • Learn the history of the palace and islands from your expert guide
Take a train from Munich and then a boat out on beautiful Chiemsee lake and its two fanciful islands. You'll visit the spectacular Herrenchiemsee palace, built in the 19th century by Mad King Ludwig II in the style of Versailles.
What to Expect
Spend a lovely day out on a boat exploring the beautiful Chiemsee and its two picturesque islands, the Herreninsel and the Fraueninsel. Known as “the Bavarian Ocean,” Chiemsee is the largest fresh-water lake near Munich.

Herreninsel boasts wonderful Herrenchiemsee, a palace built by King Ludwig II in 1878 in the image of Versailles in France. In some respects, however, Herrenchiemsee actually surpasses Versailes – its Hall of Mirrors is a famous example. With its elegant gardens and walkways and the beautiful interiors of gold, glass, and porcelain, the palace is a visually stunning monument to opulence.

King Ludwig's difficult personality is reflected in his famous elevated dining table, which was raised and lowered through the floor so the reclusive King did not have to see his servants.

This tour gives you the full story of Chiemsee and its islands. You even get the option of touring the interior of the palace. This full day tour is one of the most unique and special touring experiences in Germany.
