From Munich: Herrenchiemsee Palace and Boat Trip Day-Tour

4. From Munich: Herrenchiemsee Palace and Boat Trip Day-Tour

Spend a lovely day out on a boat exploring the beautiful Chiemsee and its two picturesque islands, the Herreninsel and the Fraueninsel. Known as “the Bavarian Ocean,” Chiemsee is the largest fresh-water lake near Munich. Herreninsel boasts wonderful Herrenchiemsee, a palace built by King Ludwig II in 1878 in the image of Versailles in France. In some respects, however, Herrenchiemsee actually surpasses Versailes – its Hall of Mirrors is a famous example. With its elegant gardens and walkways and the beautiful interiors of gold, glass, and porcelain, the palace is a visually stunning monument to opulence. King Ludwig's difficult personality is reflected in his famous elevated dining table, which was raised and lowered through the floor so the reclusive King did not have to see his servants. This tour gives you the full story of Chiemsee and its islands. You even get the option of touring the interior of the palace. This full day tour is one of the most unique and special touring experiences in Germany.

Just an unforgettable day spent on the ground, underground and on the water. Great facilities, wonderful landscapes and a GREAT GUIDE, thanks to which the whole day will remain in your memory for a long time ...

Our trip to the salt mines was awesome. Our guide, Walter, was excellent. He gave us a lot of facts and history on Salzburg as well as the Berchtesgaden salt mine and surrounding area.

This tour was excellent! Our guide, Leopold was informative and entertaining. The sights were beautiful and the salt mine was very interesting. Even our children enjoyed the tour.

Enjoyed the trip. I was glad we took the mines instead of the eagles nest as the weather wasn’t too good so it was the perfect tour for us.

The tour was very interesting and I can only recommend it.
