Description

Leave the hustle and bustle of Munich behind for a train journey to the relaxing scenery of the Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake. Explore idyllic mountain scenery, see the Benedictine convent and Bavarian palace built on the charming islands, and learn about the history around the lake's placid waters.

Start your day trip with a train journey through the lakes and mountains of Bavaria to arrive at Chiemsee, a huge glacial lake known as the Bavarian Sea. Gaze out at the beautiful scenery that inspired nobility and tourists throughout the centuries as you relax on the water's edge.

For a nominal fee, you can hop on a boat for a visit to the lake's two largest islands, Herreninsel and Fraueninsel. Experience the magnificent allure of the Herrenchiemsee palace complex, built in the 19th century by King Ludwig II with an opulence meant to rival Versailles.

You can purchase an optional guided tour of the palace, or spend time in the elegant gardens at your leisure, before continuing your tour to the little island of Fraueninsel. Admire the Benedictine convent, which dates back more than 1,200 years, and discover the island at your own pace before taking the train back to Munich.

I like radius tours. Their concept and strategy on relying on public transportation is interesting. Only catch your seat is not guaranteed. But I didn't mind the risk and worked out fine. The place itself is nice. Our guide (forgot her name shes from Germany) was superb.
