Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
The Lake Chiemsee area is picture-perfect, and this tour offers marvelous views as you take a boat ride to two different islands with ornate palaces. I think the smaller one, Fraueninsel, is a true gem!
What You Can Expect
The grand architecture of Herrenchiemsee was a pinnacle of King Ludwig's mad ambitions of building fairy-tale palaces in Bavaria. His eccentric and troubled personality is exemplified through the celebrated elevated dining table, which could be lowered through the floor to the kitchen below so that the reclusive king did not have to see his servants. The palace is currently running a Bavarian State Exhibition, offering a behind-the-scenes insight into King Ludwig II's time there. Entrance fees to the palace and the exhibition are not included. A supplement of eight euros (per person) is payable direct. Not included in the price and payable direct is also the cost of the boat journey, approx. eleven euros (per person).
This train and boat trip from Munich includes another Chiemsee island destination – the petite island of Fraueninsel, with origins dating back 1,300 years. You will have free time to explore both islands and indulge in their rich history.
On this complete day trip by train, you will have one of the most unique and breathtaking experiences in Germany.
The Herrenchiemsee Palace Rail Trip was excellent. The Palace was more beautiful inside than Linderhof and the island location lovely. The guide was very good and
the trip was well organized with the train, then an old steam train, ferry and the Palace tour. Highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour with Adam our tour guide who was extremely knowledgable about the history and background of Ludwig. This was the best tour we did in Germany- very enjoyable.
