Excellent thouroughly enjoyed it would really recimmend it.
A little over an hour drive from Munich, the city of Prien Am Chimsee houses the Chimsee lake which is the largest lake in Germany. It has a couple of islands in it and this tour went to two of them, the Herren Insel and the Frauen Insel. The former, houses the Herrenchimsee Palace which was one of the three palaces built under the mad king, Ludwig. Although it was never completed, this palace is still beautiful and worth the visit. Majority of the furniture and fixtures of the place are still original and one can learn a lot about King Ludwig through the things you will find inside this palace. The island of Frauen Insel is also equally lovely. The centerpiece of this island is an old monastery still being used by Benedictine nuns. Make sure you're wearing comfortable shoes if you choose to take this tour for there will be a lot walking and a small hike through a forest in this tour. Ran by Gray Line Tours which is based in Munich, I highly recommend this very relaxing tour. Our tour guides Alexandra and Elizabeth were equally competent in leading this tour. Both are very knowledgeable of the place and also made the tour a lot more enjoyable for each and every guests.
Nice day on the lake. Fountains at the castle were great looking.
There are not enough words to describe how beautiful these places are. We would for sure take this tour again! Do not miss it!
We got engaged here! Absolutely stunning!
Enjoyed the lake, the islands, the castle, and an excellent guide
A wonderful trip with a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We were delighted to see the third Castle of the Mad King Ludwig or, as they called him in Munich - The Swan King. It was a wonderful copy of Verseilles and even though unfinished, the furnishings and glitter of the rooms viewed were astounding.
Fraueninsel was lovely and the church another gorgeous example of Medieva/Baroque architecture and furnishing.
Our tour guide was Franz and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Bavaria and Ludwig II, very informative about the history of the islands and the beautiful Herrenchiemsee castle. We had a delicious lunch on the Fraueninsel island and the ferry boat rides were great fun. We had a great time-highly recommended!
Very well organized! The guide sorry, lost his name was very knowledgeable. . .and had that unique gift of keeping us on track, and yet making a group tour feel personal. I'd highly recommend this tour.
Franz, our tour guide, was amazing. He was the favorite of the tour guides that I had had. If I could figure out how to request specifically him, I would do it! I also enjoyed the trip and the sights. Wonderful trip.
