We want to give you a selection of the many options available to you near the hotel and in the region. Whether you are a frequent guest or visiting for the first time, there are many places to discover within the Chiemsee region and around the centrally located hotel.
Lake Chiemsee, also known as the “Bavarian sea”, is the largest lake in Bavaria, measuring 79.9 km2. Either in summer or during winter, the area provides many options for different activities: swimming, sailing, surfing, boat rides, ice skating or just going for a walk – the opportunities are endless.
Escape daily routine for a day and visit the palace “Herrenchiemsee”. The palace, built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria and modelled on Versailles, takes you back to bygone times. Enjoy a walk through the huge and stunning gardens of the island and visit the old monastery and “Chorherrenstift”, as well as the “Chiemseemaler” and constitution museum.
The monastery of “Frauenwörth” characterizes the island as a place of pilgrimage for the blessed Irmengard, who is the patron saint of the Chiemgau. The impressive abbey, the many craft stores and the stunning landscape makes this trip well worthwhile. Many people like to visit the island in the first two weekends in Advent for the famous Christmas market.
