"Wonderful Chiemsee" Prien am Chiemsee by Henkster

Prien am Chiemsee Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 59 photos

The Bavarian Ocean

Bavaria has many beautiful lakes - and the Chiemsee is the biggest one, often called "Das Bayerische Meer" ("The Bavarian Ocean"). It is huge with 3 islands.

On the Fraueninsel stands a monastry and on the bigger Herreninsel a Baroque palace, built by Ludwig II. (Schloss Herrenchiemsee).

Prien is a cute little Bavarian town on the Eastern shore, with Biergartens, lots of boats to rent and a typical Bavarian atmosphere.

You can hike around Chiemsee - but that will take it while, it is 60 km (40 miles)!
