No credit or bank card payments are accepted. Hence have cash on hand. Friendly crew, clean boats that at a leisurely pace take you around the lake. As punctual as a public boat service can be!

One of the more comfortable boat trips I have made.Weather was cold and gray: a rainy day Sunday.The Port of Prien is a walking distance from the railway station.There is even narrow gauge train but only in high season I think.I just walked and bought a ticket for a mini cruise on Chiemsee (8.20).There are three stops on the way...

So that is essential: Get to the Fraueninsel by boat. Please make sure you got the latest timetable (summer/winter) different. The recommendation is the great tour around the lake which takes some time (like 2 1/2 hours or so) but it is worth it! Get out at Chieming for a break of your journey and pick the next boat after...

My friend and I had a lovely day here, we arrived by coach but there is a steam train that takes you from the station to the lake. We caught the Ferry to the male island first (the largest) and visited Kind Ludwig II palace. So grand and lots of gold. The guide was very informative and its really worth... More

When trainload of passengers would come to board the ferry, you would feel the pressure. So get there before or well after the train arrives from the main station. Tickets can be purchased on board for the tours. We did the islands tour. Hopped on and off. Comfortable, but be prepared to queue.

We arrived with the steam train, and immediately had a boat to the Herreninsel, everything is synchronized very efficiently and works very easily. Also the next boats between the islands and back are great and fast.

A beautiful town, with the toy train parked right beside the lake, the Alps at the background the deep blue lake is such a welcome sight. Hip-Hopping around teh many islands the cruise is definitely worth and the view is such a delight. We enjoyed it much.

The trip to and from the harbour to Herrenchiemsee went well, and the palace was worth the entrance fee. The whole package did suffer due to a lack of coordination when they switch to the summer season. Despite it being 28 degrees it was still regarded as "winter" so the train to the Barbour wasn't running, and the information office... More
