Herrenchiemsee - Footpath
A trail approximately 7 km long leads round the island. This will take you on well-shaded paths away from the crowds to interesting lookout points on the island. A walk that is well worthwhile!
Ludwig II periodically toyed with the idea of establishing a new kingdom on a distant island. On the 230 hectares Herreninsel he seems to have put this into practice on a small scale. The king thus ordered his architects and technicians to lay out a number of paths, including a carriageway which runs almost right round the island close to the shore, and a railway line, which was to form a wide loop around the new palace.
Visitors can however still use the other paths to explore the island with its orchards and fields, meadows and dense woodland.
Views of the Alps
The splendid views of the Alps to the south of the island and of course the view of the palace from the end of the Avenue or the Apollo Fountain are particular highlights.
Very nice swans and ducks of special possibly Ludwig-breeds float in Chiemsee-lake.
Very nice cows of special possibly Ludwig-breed are grazed on Herren-island.
