Take the Chiemsee Bahn to the Ferries then on to Ludwig's castle. Low priced event (~15 Euros a person which includes transportation and tour) that is very welcoming to English speaking visitors (even English speaking tours). Give yourself at least four hours and some comfortable walking shoes. Don't worry about bringing the good camera as all photos turn out amazing... More

You can catch the ferries from various points around the lake. For us arriving at Prien, we left the car in a car park which is 4,50 euros maximum (it only takes 50 cents, 1 euro and 2 euro coins I think). There is a short walk to the ferries (crazy golf and a steam railway among other things available... More

The Schifffahrt (round trip by steamers) is a pleasure to undertake, as one goes across from Prien to Herreninsel, Fraueninsel and the other villages around this lake. The crews are well motivated and clearly proud of what they do; the places they call at are delightful; a good day out.

No trip to Chiemsee is complete without a trip over to the Herreninsel and Fraueninsel islands and the best way to go is on this ferry service which operates from all Chiemsee locations on a regular basis daily. Food and beverage service is available on board.

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!

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
