One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen till date. The weather man had predicted that there would be rain. Still we decided to take a chance. Also the snow was long gone (mostly 1 or 2 weeks ago). While we were on the train it started to snow. By the time we were at Prien, the ground was white with virgin snow.
We took a taxi to the jetty and then a small ship to go to the biggest island. And while we we walking towards the ticket booth we saw this amazing sight. The ground and the trees were covered with a soft white blanket! It was heaven!
Herrenchiemsee has a palace built by King Ludwig II in 1878, also called Herrenchiemsee, which was never completed but was meant to be a replica of the Palace of Versailles, in France. Many of the rooms of the castle are open to tourists; tours of the castle and its extensive grounds on the island are conducted throughout the summer. Unfortunately cameras are not allowed inside the palace. It is worth visiting though.
This place is like a painting which keeps on changing every moment.
Frauenchiemsee is the smaller of the two major islands on the Chiemsee, and houses a Benedictine nunnery, built in 782, as well as a small village. One can walk around the island along a meandering cost line. It is a quiet little beautiful place.
