I went to a wedding on Fraueninsel and it was so beautiful. The lake and the alps were the perfect setting for such a beautiful occasion and the island itself is very cute and cozy. Absolutely worth a visit!

The main draw is perhaps the beautiful, old abbey, but be warned, it is very touristy. Good restaurants, and weather permitting a great place to have lunch in the beer garden under chestnut trees. Well worth a visit, either to or from visiting the castle...More

We had an amazing Sunday at the island! It is such a relaxing place with beautiful views. The restaurants are great and are specialized on Fish, and of course German Beer.

The island is only a few minutes boat ride away and if you stroll around, only about an hour although you could eek it out to 90 minutes but the church is exquisite as are the restaurants with fabulous fish dishes of course. The views...More

To visit Herrenchiemsee Palace you must take the Ferry Schfffhart... But then you should continue after visiting the palace to the next island: Fraueninsel. This island is beautiful: a Monastery you can see clearly far from the island, a few restaurants worth meal or at...More

Translated as the "Women's Island", this one exudes an ambiance which is very relaxing if I may say so myself. The town is small but is full of historical structures and the centerpiece a Benedictine Monastery which is still being used by Benedictine nuns. There...More

I like Fraueninsel largely as a place to walk by the water and take in the view. It can get busy on weekends and during the holidays, so early arrival is better. There are regular boats to Prien and Gstadt, as well as other points...More

Not to be missed by those visiting Chiemsee. Wonderful ambiance and three really fine fish restaurants with fresh fish (such as Zander, or arctic char) caught that morning in the crystal clear lake. More intimate but just as enjoyable as the "men's island" --Herrenchiemsee-- which...More
