Known as the "Bavarian Sea," the Chiemsee is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Bavarian Alps, set in a serene landscape. In the south, the mountains reach almost to the water. Many resorts line the shores of the large lake, but the Chiemsee's main attractions are on its two islands, Frauenchiemsee, with its interesting local customs, and Herrenchiemsee, site of the palace built by Ludwig II with the intent of recreating Versailles.
