Herrenchiemsee Palace & Fraueninsel 
Private Day Tour

Neues Schloss Herrenchiemsee © Bayerische Schlösserverwaltung

This unique private day tour from Munich to the New Palace Herrenchiemsee takes you into the dream world of King Ludwig II and shows you Bavaria from one of its most beautiful sides.


Herrenchiemsee Palace, idyllically situated on an island in the middle of Lake Chiemsee, was built by King Ludwig II, who made it world-famous as builder of Neuschwanstein Castle and as a supposedly crazy fairy tale king.


On this excursion you will get to know the true story of King Ludwig II, who was definitely not crazy, but created dream worlds to escape the unloved reality. With Herrenchiemsee Palace, Ludwig II erected a monument to the French Sun King Ludwig XIV, here he wanted to live out his dream of an absolutist ruler of God's grace. Learn more about the life and history of the fairy tale king in the Ludwig II Museum and enjoy an idyllic walk on the island Herreninsel.


Another highlight of this tour is a visit to the neighboring Fraueninsel, a picturesque island with one of Germany's oldest women's monasteries, traditional pottery and fishing businesses and traditional restaurants. Enjoy local dishes in a relaxed atmosphere before we continue our journey by ferry on Lake Chiemsee.
