The lake’s water is of high quality, its temperature is between 17 and 27 degrees during the summer season. Imagine crystal clear water surface, smooth as a mirror, with the Alpine panorama in the background... A perfect place to try out all sorts of water activities, is it not? It is not for nothing that the Chiemsee lake is one of the most important sights in Germany. Here you can enjoy:


Swimming & bathing

Stand Up Paddling and windsurfing

Do you want to master the Hawaiian sport of Kings? Here's your chance! Stand up paddle boarders stand on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves. Although SUP is considered to be easy for almost everyone, it involves all muscle groups and brings the athletes meditative calm. You will find all necessary equipment for windsurfing, exciting courses and tours at Chiemsee.

• Area 238 ha

The Herreninsel (formerly Herrenwörthist) is the largest of the four islands in Chiemsee lake. Together with the Fraueninsel and the Krautinsel islands it's the second smallest municipality of Bavaria named Chiemsee. Residents and guests of the region owe it to the penultimate king of Bavaria that this splendid location wasn't deforested by wood speculators in 1873, but instead has become a magnificent green oasis for strolling and admiring. Charming horse-drawn carriages turn exploring the Herrenchiemsee into a truly royal experience from around early April to late October. You will find here an organic distillery for adults and a wildlife enclosure with deer and roe, as well as playgrounds for children. Visit is a must when it comes to following sites:

Herrenchiemsee Castle


Photo by Bernhard

The residence of the fairy-tale King Ludwig II, which was built according to example of the Versailles castle, attracts travelers from far and wide. The lush park area, fine statues and sumptuous fountains excellently complement the luxurious building and create genuinely princely atmosphere. If you take interest in the art from the 19th century, or merely want to satisfy your aesthetic hunger - the interiors of the castle with its porcelain items, high quality textile and stunning décor are just what you need! What's the point of driving a thousand kilometers to France, when Herrenchiemsee is both closer and more splendid than Versailles?

Galleries Julius Exter and Maler am Chiemsee

These two painting exhibitions are located on the second floor of the museum.

Around 100 works by the pioneer of modern Munich art can be admired here. In the permanent exhibition "Maler am Chiemsee", art fans will find the artworks by Karl Millner, Friedrich August Kessler, Friedrich Wilhelm Pfeiffer, Karl Raupp and many other painters from the Chiemsee-Alpenland region.

• Area 15,5 ha

Surprisingly, this island is the second largest in Chiemsee, although one can circumnavigate it in 20 minutes on foot. In contrast to the Herreninsel, approx. 300 inhabitants live in about 50 houses all year round on Frauenchiemsee. It is also known as one of the oldest artists' colonies in Europe. While Herrenchiemsee is a symbol of opulence and grandeur, Frauenchiemsee with its cute farmhouses, lovely gardens and delightful sacral architecture conveys an exceptional homelike atmosphere with rustic flair. Come and visit one of the traditional potteries, try fresh haul of family-run fisheries or taste local specialty beers in one of cozy beer gardens. Everyone finds something pleasant to do out here. We recommend to visit the following places on the Fraueninsel island:

Frauenwörth monastery on the Frauenchiemsee

Founded in 782 by Duke Tassilo III. and consecrated by Bishop Virgil of Salzburg, the abbey is the oldest one in Germany. The story still recalls the first known abbess of the monastery - saint Irmengard, who was buried here and is now considered a patron saint of the whole region. Thus far the Benedictine Sisters live in Frauenwörth and take care of this seminar venue and place of pilgrimage. Music events, weddings, annual Christmas market steeped in tradition take place here.

- Opening hours: May to October : 11 am-5pm daily

Carolingian gateway hall

This building broke the record of the Abbey for the oldest construction - it derives from the 9th century St. Michael's Chapel, which attracts visitors with its beautiful frescoes and "memorials of Bavarian piety from times of the Carolingians and Agilolfings" and varied art exhibitions lies on the first floor of the gateway hall.

Campanile (free-standing bell tower)

Say "hello" to the most photographed attraction of Chiemsee region and don't miss the opportunity to make an Instagram post featuring it - plenty of likes guaranteed 🙂 It is situated in the monastery garden next to the approximately 1200 years old Marienmünster cathedral and is a 36 meter high landmark of the entire island.

Tassilolinde and Marienlinde limetrees

These two are called "the 1000-year-old linden" by the locals even though they actually go back roughly 5 centuries. To enjoy the local atmosphere in full, you totally should stand in the shade of these trees for a while.

Activities - On foot or on bike, that is the question

Hiking and cycling are the most popular activities in the area next to water sports, that sweeten any leave. The land of active tourism is rich in mountains and the most popular ones are Kampenwand (1,669 m), Wendelstein (1,838 m), Chiemgau in the east, Mangfallgebirge in the west, Tyrol and high mountain ranges of the Alps in the south. The mountain railways rapidly bring hikers up to the mountain tops, presenting them with spectacular views of the valleys. All facilities are provided here for rock climbers, tobogganers or skiers, snowshoe hikers, hang-gliders and paragliders, cave explorers and many others. In addition there is a large number of guided tours and thematic adventure trails with legendary figures, which are also well suited for children. You can wander through the woods, past the bogs, in the mountains or around any neighboring towns - everything your heart desires is at your disposal. The Chiemseerundweg trail leads the adventurers round the Chiemsee.

• Top 3 hiking trails:
Steinlingalm alp - Sonnenalm alp trail from Kampenwandbahn
Steinlingalm alp - "Chiemsee view" trail from Kohlstattweg
View over the Hartsee - forest trail from Bad Endorf

As far as biking is concerned, the Chiemsee-Alpenland is often called the cycling region. The popular Chiemsee Radweg bikeway stretches for about 55 kilometers along the banks of the lake and sits very well with pro cyclists and e-bikers. Mountain bikers will not be bored in the Alps either. Bike rental, bike parks, charging and service stations can be found at every turn. Suddenly exhausted? No problem, the buses of the Chiemseering line have trailers for bicycles at the ready!

Food and Drinks - Feasting in Bavarian style

You have definetly heard about the hearty Bavarian gastronomy already, but such a taste has to be experienced firsthand. The region Chiemsee-Alpenland is an excellent place to do so.

Some fisherman families are in business for over 400 years and have sharpened their skills thoroughly: grilled, baked, fried, fresh fish delicacies - all that one can wish for! Gourmets are simply not allowed to leave this region without tasting the Steckerlfisch.

A halt after the hike or a break in a cycling or excursion tour would be a suitable occasion to have an authentic Bavarian snack: White sausage with crunchy fresh pretzels or wood-oven baked bread and sweet mustard, meat loaf, organic fruit and vegetables from a pastoral farmer's market... The list of delicacies could go on forever.

Farmhouse cheese dairy and farm shops, which offer all sorts of cheeses fresh from the alpine pasture are another distinctive feature of the region: cheese fans can savour mild and spicy sheep's, goat's, cow's milk cheese, fenugreek cheese, chili cheese, Grainbacher special cheese and many others on the Lochnerhof farm at the Samerberg mountain or Audorfer cheesery in Oberaudorf and so on.

Sweet tooths will highly appreciate farm ice cream, hot apple pies, homemade cakes, pastry, chocolate and chocolates with a cup of premium-quality coffee. It is particularly advisable to try the iconic marzipan "Pilgrim bread" from the Frauenwörth Abbey!!

If you are looking for somewhat harder stuff countless local beers and liqueurs are at your command. Do not miss the chance to sample the monastery liqueur handmade by nuns and relish some Kymsee whiskey!

Along with Bavarian specialties different cuisines are served in numerous restaurants throughout the region: from Mexican to Japanese.


Those, who are ready to lose themselves in the culinary world of Bavaria, can put our list of eateries, which belong to the classification "Excellent Bavarian cuisine" to good use:
