Description

The most comfortable way to see the sights. If you would rather not drive yourself, we can arrange a car with a driver for you. A driver who handles navigation, parking, waiting and who can liberate you entirely for sightseeing, shopping or even business, making your travels far more rewarding.

Enjoy a memorable day on the Lake Chiemsee. The tour starts with a boat ride out to the small island where the palace is located. Take a leisurely stroll across the island or take one of the horse drawn carriages arriving at the palace entrance.

In 1873 King Ludwig II of Bavaria acquired the Herreninsel as the location for his Royal Palace of Herrenchiemsee (New Palace). Modeled on Versailles, this palace was built as a "Temple of Fame" for King Louis XIV of France, whom the Bavarian monarch fervently admired. The actual building of this "Bavarian Versailles," which was begun in 1878 from plans by Georg Dollmann, was preceded by a total of 13 planning stages. When Ludwig II died in 1886 the palace was still incomplete, and sections of it were later demolished.

The highlights of the large state rooms are the State Staircase, the State Bedroom and the Great Hall of Mirrors. The king's own rooms were in the intimate Small Apartment, designed in the French rococo style. In 1876, Court Garden Director Carl von Effner completed the plans for a large garden resembling that of Versailles. When the king died, only the sections along the main axis with their famous fountains and waterworks had been completed.
