Travel Tips for Prien am Chiemsee
Bavaria is my kind of place
I love Bavaria! From the people, to the food and the place. This is one part of Germany where I can keep coming back to, over and over again, and still find something new to do (or I keep doing what I like doing too). Taking long walk or what they call, "spazieren gehen", through their beautiful forests.
Prien, A Surprise
Having never been here before we expected a sleepy little village. What a surprise to find a bustling little town filled with trendy shops and cafes. The people were very friendly and helpful. A walk through a few of the neighborhoods found some wonderfully decorated homes.
"The Bavarian Ocean"
Bavaria has many beautiful lakes - and the Chiemsee is the biggest one, often called "Das Bayerische Meer" ("The Bavarian Ocean"). It is huge with 3 islands.
On the Fraueninsel stands a monastry and on the bigger Herreninsel a Baroque palace, built by Ludwig II. (Schloss Herrenchiemsee).
Prien is a cute little Bavarian town on the Eastern shore, with Biergartens, lots of boats to rent and a typical Bavarian atmosphere.
You can hike around Chiemsee - but that will take it while, it is 60 km (40 miles)!
