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.

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.
