    Footpath

    A trail approximately 7 km long leads round the island. This will take you on well-shaded paths away from the crowds to interesting lookout points on the island. A walk that is well worthwhile!

    Ludwig II periodically toyed with the idea of establishing a new kingdom on a distant island. On the 230 hectares Herreninsel he seems to have put this into practice on a small scale. The king thus ordered his architects and technicians to lay out a number of paths, including a carriageway which runs almost right round the island close to the shore, and a railway line, which was to form a wide loop around the new palace.

    Visitors can however still use the other paths to explore the island with its orchards and fields, meadows and dense woodland.

    Fraueninsel

    die Fraueninsel... you can see from Schloss Herrenchiemsee, but from there you can't see the Palace. Ludwig II made sure, this place was completly private, nobody could see or should see what he was up too.
    and yes, the King was madly in love with his favorite Actor, a young man, flattered and facinated by the Kings affection and flamboyance.
    die Fraueninsel used to be a retreat for Nuns, the old Cloister is still there, but I think the Nun's left. a typical bavarian restaurant, with big beergarden is the main attraction now..food for thoughts and food for the belli

    While waiting your turn to take the tour of the palace you can go out to watch the water fountain show that is put on about every 30 min.
    Each of the big fountains shoot large amounts of water up into the sky. It is a sight to see.

    A path around the island

    There is also a hiking path around the island, which is about 7 km long. It runs through the forest mainly and brings you to interesting points (like this church) off the tourist masses.

    This hike looks very interesting and I have to do it next time!

    PS: I took this photo from the ship, but you will pass this church too on your hike.

    After you have visited the palace you can go on the Fraueninsel, which is the smaller island in lake. It houses a monastery which can be visited too.

    If you plan to go there, then make shure that your ship ticket includes the ride to the Fraueninsel too.

    It must be very lovely there - hope to be there next time!

    The splendid views of the Alps to the south of the island and of course the view of the palace from the end of the Avenue or the Apollo Fountain are particular highlights.

    Little church

    If you do the walk around the island you can find a few little hidden treasures like this little chapel. Some of the little buildings on the island are beautiful.
