New Palace Herrenchiemsee

In the south of Bavaria is the unique Palace Herrenchiemsee, also known as the ‘‘Bavarian Versailles‘‘ because Versailles served as a pattern. A boat takes you to the island Herreninsel where the Palace is located. It was built by King Ludwig II who also built the famous Linderhof Palace and Neuschwanstein Castle. The King Ludwig II Museum tells the story of Ludwig II’s life from his birth to death and is reachable by foot.
The most impressive parts of the Herrenchiemsee Palace are the king‘s own rooms which are all designed in the French Rococo style while the beautiful gardens resemble the gardens of Versailles.
Also on the island Herreninsel there is the Augustinian Monastery (Old Palace) which was constructed in the baroque era. Nowadays it is a museum where visitors can visit private rooms by King Ludwig II, Monastery kitchen and state rooms.
The romantic neighbouring island Fraueninsel can be reached by boat. With more than 50 houses and about 250 inhabitants, the island is the smallest community in bavaria. The Campanile, a freestanding bell tower, and the Frauenwörth monastery are landmarks and tell about the history and culture of the island.
