Make a full day visit the Islands (Fraueninsel and Herreninsel) also the villages around the lake, but study the timetable first and make sure you are on the correct boat. We felt that it was a pity that the fountains in the Palace gardens were not operational all the time.

We took the ferry to Chiemsee Castle. Arrived at the dock right on time so we had no wait. We had a great seat inside and the ride to the island is not long. Got off, viewed the Castle and got back on in the same line we had gotten off. When we got off this ferry, we couldn't figure... More

Visited Chiemsee and booked a boat trip to the islands. Really easy process and low cost. 17 euros for two people to use the boats all day. The boats run 30 minute shuttle services between the islands and are punctual. Outside and inside seating. Kept very clean. Snacks and drinks available on board. Very busy at weekends.

In case you wish to go to Herren am Chiemsee to see King Ludwig's II castle, you need to take the boat ride. The ride is really awesome where you can sit out in the open and also have a beer. The funny part is that you need to show your tickets when you get back from the Insel. Worth... More

We went in November and the heritage train that leaves the central station and reaches the harbour for the lake cruise ships were closed. We took a local bus and reached the harbour after an interesting ride through the township of Chimesee We bought a round trip ticket for the family and took the cruise and spent the whole day...

The route was great, with a really nice view of the mountains and the lake and so on.... The ticket price is normal.

Taking the boat to the Herreninsel and Fraueninsel is a must when you are visiting the area. Enjoy the wonderful views of the lake and take great pics.

Took a ferry ride to get to King Ludwig's castle and bought tickets for the guided tour. Bit pricey but worth it for the experience. It's about 20mins walk from the ferry pier to the castle depending on your speed and condition. Stunning over the top bling inside this obscure place that you wouldn't imagine, as if you've been transported... More

Great to have a boat trip on the lake. Unfortunately we seemed to travel from place to place when it was drizzling. Very good service, though boats start to run rather late in the morning.
