a day-trip to Ludwig's splendid castle located on an island with a drive on a scenic Bavarian Alps road


DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS THE PALACE REMAINS CLOSED FOR THE TIME BEING
We will drive through the beautiful upper Bavarian countryside to Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake. There we will take a short boat trip to the island of Herrenchiemsee, world famous thanks to Ludwig II who built here his great (yet unfinished) castle of Schloss Herrenchiemsee. It is based on the Palace of Versailles near Paris. Though only 20 of the 70 rooms had been finished at the time of his tragic death 125 years ago, it is nevertheless a site of astonishing beauty and lavishness.
On our way back we will drive on a stunning Alpine road to a restaurant near a waterfall and enjoy the beautiful mountain view there.

Please note: my tour price already includes the entrance fee to the palace and boat ride
