Moving experience.

One of the things I learned in my visit there was, how the nuns had opposed the Nazis and there efforts of true Christianity. There is a school there and children take the ferry boat along with others. Recommend!

Lovely island - nice place to be
Jun 2019
You have to take one of the boats to get there but you will enjoy it. The island is very small, you can walk around it in less than half an hour. But there is lots of things to discover and lots of Biergarten to visit. Try the local Fish , visit one of the shops. It is different to the main land, much more relaxing. Time is different there.
Nice place to be!

I went to a wedding on Fraueninsel and it was so beautiful. The lake and the alps were the perfect setting for such a beautiful occasion and the island itself is very cute and cozy. Absolutely worth a visit!

A GREAT VISIT FOR HISTORY BUFFS.
Jun 2018 • Friends
The main draw is perhaps the beautiful, old abbey, but be warned, it is very touristy. Good restaurants, and weather permitting a great place to have lunch in the beer garden under chestnut trees. Well worth a visit, either to or from visiting the castle at Herrenchiemsee.

We had an amazing Sunday at the island!
It is such a relaxing place with beautiful views. The restaurants are great and are specialized on Fish, and of course German Beer.

A quaint beautiful small island
Apr 2018 • Friends
The island is only a few minutes boat ride away and if you stroll around, only about an hour although you could eek it out to 90 minutes but the church is exquisite as are the restaurants with fabulous fish dishes of course.

The views in all directions look out across the water. Most of the views stretch towards the mountains and the Chiemsee is so large that there is enough to look at and enjoy.

Everyone is friendly and it was a relaxed perfect half day excursion

A must after Herrenchiemsee Palace
Sep 2017 • Family
To visit Herrenchiemsee Palace you must take the Ferry Schfffhart...
But then you should continue after visiting the palace to the next island: Fraueninsel.

This island is beautiful: a Monastery you can see clearly far from the island, a few restaurants worth meal or at least a good coffee and cake, and mainly beautiful flowery gardens all over the island.
The weather was uninviting, nevertheless the gardens were so beautiful that we were not deterred and actually enjoyed the visit...

If you are lucky enough to have some sun ... All the better, and don't forget your camera...

A small island with history and unique sites
May 2017 • Couples
Die Fraueninsel is a small island and it only takes approximately 20 minutes to circumnavigate with no stops. In contrast to the other islands in the Chiemsee, this island is densely populated with more than 50 houses and their inhabitants. The most unique feature on the island is the famous Benedictine monastery Frauenwörth housing Benedictine nuns and right next to a 1,200-year-old cathedral. The monastery Frauenwörth is the oldest nunnery in Germany. The first known abbess was the Blessed Irmengard (died 866) she was buried in the cathedral. Her burial site is still a place of pilgrimage today and the area remains a popular wedding destination. Also, do not miss the small monastery cemetery where some famous artists and other personages are buried.

A Quaint and Lovely Island At Chimsee Lake
Sep 2017 • Couples
Translated as the "Women's Island", this one exudes an ambiance which is very relaxing if I may say so myself. The town is small but is full of historical structures and the centerpiece a Benedictine Monastery which is still being used by Benedictine nuns. There are a couple of good restaurants in the place where one could get a good meal and for the shutterbugs, a lot of photo opportunities. This island, together with Herren Insel, is accessible thru tours coming from Munich and is highly recommended for tourists visiting Bavaria.

A Fabulous Place for a Walk
Jul 2017 • Couples
I like Fraueninsel largely as a place to walk by the water and take in the view. It can get busy on weekends and during the holidays, so early arrival is better. There are regular boats to Prien and Gstadt, as well as other points along the lack. Fraueninsel is a nice stopover if you do the full loop tour.
