Chiemsee cruise to the islands of Herreninsel and Fraueninsel

The Chiemsee is renowned not just for its wonderful landscape of Alpine foothills, but particularly for its wealth of cultural assets. One of the best known is the Herrenchiemsee Palace, built by King Ludwig II of Bavaria. The classic among Chiemsee excursions is, without a doubt, a cruise complete with a visit of the palace followed by the trip to the Fraueninsel with its Benedictine abbey and romantic gardens.

A hike with foresters of the Bavarian State Forest Enterprise

The excursion gives an insight into the work of the Bavarian State Forest Enterprise and a possibility for exchange and discussion around the topic of sustainable, multifunctional forest management.
