Munich, if you've been once or twice then Prien am Chiemsee is a great 1 day trip if you're looking for things to do outside of Munich. The train ride itself is fun and the boat trip over can be confusing as there are a...More

We drove to Prien port where we parked. There's a spa of some sort with a big parking lot and it costs about €6 for a day, so not bad. We then walked over to where the ferries depart and took the tour that allowed...More

Boarded the Ferry at Seebruck close to our hotel. It was a very relaxing journey that took 70 mins to Herreninsel via Chieming and Fraueninsel. The boat was very pleasant and efficient. The timings were spot on and the queues were not too long. You...More

The ferry on Lake Chiemsee is the best way to get to the islands of Herreninsel and Fraueninsel to see the Herrenchiemsee palace and Benedictine nunnery respectively. At peak season I believe you can take the ferry from several points around the lake, but we...More

We took the boat to Herrn Chiemsee and back to visit the Castle. We love the boat ride over the amazing Chiemsee.

A quirky little train that takes you through the town, and you get some good views into some very well kept gardens. The town feels like a well run holiday park, and this train adds to the sense of holiday.

The boat trips around the lake are great. We went to Herreninsel first to see the replica of Versailles that King Ludwig II built (clearly he was infatuated with King Louis XIV). The grounds are pristine and the fountains when on are amazing. We then...More

I think I enjoyed riding the boats as much as anything else at the Cheiemsee. Well run with all sorts of nice towns (and two islands) to see, you can do loop tours around "German's ocean." On a nice day, it's a delight to sit...More

You will enjoy every minute of your boat trip around the wonderful lake of Chiemsee. Of course you have to get off at Herreninsel to see "mad" King Ludwig II's famous Versailles-like palace. But equally enjoyable is the smaller Fraueninsel, with its convent and three...More

What a good question. For regional and local trains there really isn't much difference but for the longer-distance trains (ICE, IC, EC, etc.) first class buys you a somewhat bigger seat, more legroom and a usually... More
