This tour takes you to 'Mad King Ludwig's replica of the Palace of Versailles, set on a tiny island in a lake in Bavaria.  The tour will take you through some breathtaking scenery, along the 'Romantic Road' - a route along which you can see many traditional villages and beautiful countryside.

The palace is surrounded by magnificent formal gardens with fountains.  The gardens themselves are worth a visit.

The tour of the palace is quite leisurely, and you can take in the Hall of Mirrors, the Meissen porcelain chandeliers, the gilded furniture and listen to information about 'Mad' King Ludwig and Empress Sissy of Austria.  You will not get such a wonderful chance to look long and hard at the original - Versailles!

The island has several tourist souvenir shops and ice cream cafes, but you can quite easily dispense with these, and take your own lunch, which will give you more time to walk round the pretty island or take in the magnificent gardens.

Your trip will include a short boat ride across the lake each way, which adds to the charm of the day.

Of all the tours on offer, Herrenchiemsee is highly recommended to everyone.
