    What to Expect
    This full-day excursion begins at the Bahnhofplatz in front of the Karstadt München Bahnhofplatz, across from the main railway station. After boarding a motor coach, it’s approximately a 1-hour ride southeast to Bavaria’s largest lake—Lake Chiemsee—home of King Ludwig’s most elaborate home, Herrenchiemsee Palace. 

    This castle is located on an island in the Chiemsee. Enjoy a guided walking tour (entrance fee not included) of the large state rooms: the State Staircase, the State Bedroom and the Great Hall of Mirrors, plus the king's own rooms in the intimate Small Apartment, designed in the French rococo style.

    After the tour, take a boat ride across the lake to Fraueninsel Island, the second largest of the three islands in the Chiemsee. Explore the island and be sure to stop at the historic Benedictine convent, which dates back to the first century.

    The tour ends with a return trip to Munich.

    First in "Herreninsel" you can enjoy a mini-copy of the Palace of Versailles (France) built (or rather ... commissioned?) By Ludwig II of Bavaria. Too much luxury in very little space. Do not forget to take your time in the gardens and fountains. A clue...More
