We spent three hours on this small island whilst touring around the Lake on a Steamer. We had a nice lunch at the Hotel Wirt and spent some time looking around the small church attached to the Abbey. The small cemetery is very well kept and interesting to wonder round. There is a bench outside the church overlooking the cemetery where in the afternoon you can sit in the shade and chill out!

We didn't have a lot of time, but it was nice to see the monastery. A beautiful church, initially romanesque, redone in barock. A gatehouse which dates back from the year 860 A. D., and which contains a chapel featuring some of the oldest frescoes in Germany. There was also an amazing exhibition of some of the oldest German works of Christian art; not sure if that's always there.

A very nice little island near the Herrenchiemsee on the lake, great view of the German Alps, too! Great walking and some shopping in the monastery and excellent restaurants.In the main church, it is not allowed to take pictures, inside!We can only get there by Ferry.

The island is very small, you can walk around in 1 hour. The sunset is amazing there! There are a lots of places to rent and take your time with your love, family or friends. There is an exclusive Brauerei (Inselbräu), it is very very old, as so the church. I saw a beautiful wedding there. All the island looks like a paint picture.
