Luxury in the heart of Bavaria

Sightseeing on your holiday in Chiemsee...

Herrenchiemsee Palace

King Ludwig II, also known as the fairy-tale king, had a great vision for the biggest island on the Chiemsee. Here he planned to build a copy of the palace of Versailles near Paris. The building was the last and the most expensive of King Ludwig II’s projects. Although for financial reasons it was never finished, the building cost more than the palaces of Neuschwanstein and Linderhof together. If you spend your holiday in a holiday suite or a holiday house at the Chiemsee, visiting the main building is a must. The great hall of mirrors, the state bedroom and the magnificent staircase alone make it worth a visit. The delightful gardens and the King Ludwig II Museum in the south wing are also worth visiting.

The Fraueninsel (women’s island)

The small island is idyllically located on the Chiemsee. From your holiday suite or your holiday house, you can reach the car-free jewel by one of the Chiemsee ships. You will be delighted by the picturesque gardens of the 1200-year-old Frauenchiemsee convent. Walk around the romantic island and you will see why the place was originally founded as an artists’ colony. It is not only the wonderful scenery that people find so inspiring, the comfortable restaurants and the island’s excellent regional products really have to be tried. You should also make time to see the free-standing bell tower, the Campanile, and the gate hall from the Carolingian period.

Wendelstein cog railway and Wendelstein cave

The Wendelstein cog railway has been running since 1912. That makes it the oldest Bavarian cog railway still in operation. Every half hour, the trains wind their way up the Wendelstein massif. A holiday at the Chiemsee is not complete without a trip on this railway. Once you have reached the top, you can visit the Wendelstein cave. This is the highest tourist cave in Germany. The Karst cave has been open to visitors since 1921 and is about 1711 metres above sea level. This excursion is suitable for the whole family and we can even recommend it to guests of our holiday suites who are not quite as mobile.

Adventure mine in Berchtesgaden

A holiday at the Chiemsee is the ideal starting point for a visit to the adventure mine in Berchtesgaden. Here interesting facts about the salt mine, which has been mining salt for over 500 years, are presented in a clear and effective way. The slide into the tunnel is not only fun for children, and everybody enjoys the trip into the mountain by the little tourist train. Inside the mountain, special light effects show off the salt crystals in an impressive manner and make the tour unforgettable. If you are spending your holiday in a holiday suite or holiday house at the Chiemsee for medical reasons, you should be sure to visit the healing salt galleries. The air is said to alleviate respiratory diseases like asthma or allergies. In the main season, you can fortify yourself afterwards in the “Mountain Tavern”.

Wellness and relaxation

In Bad Endorf, not far from the Chiemsee, you will find the Chiemgau Spa. The various spa pools offer peace and relaxation. Swim in the 125-metre-long flow channel and enjoy the soothing effect of the Dead Sea Salt Grotto. The spa is fed by one of Europe’s strongest iodine saline springs. This is why a wellness day in Bad Endorf is so good for your body and soul. The spa in Bad Aibling is equally easy to reach from your holiday suite. Spend a relaxing day in the wonderful spa oasis and enjoy the underwater music in the sensorial area. There is also an attractive selection of saunas, which ranges from hamam to a moor cupola sauna.
