Chiemsee Shipping - A visit offering many attractions

All-year-round lake cruises and boat trips to the Herrenchiemse Palace on Herreninsel island or to visit the abbey on Fraueninsel island. Events staged on the cruisers include folk music and jazz or a star-gazing cruise in August.

Ferry operator Chiemsee-Schifffahrt runs all-year-round excursions from Prien to Herrenchiemsee’s magnificent Hall of Mirrors and its vast park, with statues and fountains.

The romantic, gold-and-marble castle of Herrenchiemsee was built to rival Louis XIV’s Palace of Versailles. Dominating the small island of Herreninsel, on Lake Chiemsee, it’s the biggest of several famous castles of Ludwig II., the 19th century king who funded Wagner’s operas and put Bavaria on the map. 

The Chiemsee is a favorite spot for holiday-makers. Travelers can cruise to resorts all around the lake, which is Bavaria’s largest. Also worth visiting is Fraueninsel, or the ‘Women’s Island’, which has a tiny Benedictine abbey and hosts a Christmas market in winter.
