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
I will pick you up at your hotel in Munich. After a ride through the scenic Bavarian countryside we will stop at lake Chiemsee, take a boat to the island where we will visit the palace of Herrenchiemsee. On our way back we will drive via a stunning Alpine road to a restaurant next to a waterfall. At the end of the day I will take you back to your hotel.
