Among several well-known natural bodies of water in Germany, Lake Chiemsee stands out, which is otherwise called the "Bavarian Sea". This place has been of interest among numerous tourists from all over Europe and the world for more than one hundred years.
Lake Chiemsee is one of the most amazing bodies of water not only in Germany, but throughout Europe. Located near Munich, 80 km, it is a natural adornment of the south-east of Bavaria.
This place attracts tourists with its mild climate. The water temperature in the summer months warms up to 25 ° C. At the same time, the sweltering heat does not bother travelers.
There are two amazingly beautiful islands on Lake Chiemsee. One of them is called "female". In the 8th century, a nunnery was erected on this site. Another island of Lake Chiemsee is called the "Islands of Men". It occupies a fairly large area - 230 hectares of land. There is a beautiful architectural structure on the island, built in 1872 by order of King Louis II of Bavaria, called the Herrenchiemsee palace. This building is not only the largest among other German palaces, but also the most expensive.
The views of the Alpine mountain peaks, which reach a height of 2000 meters, will bring an amazing impression to tourists. These mountains turn into a lake landscape, showing the amazing beauty of nature.
Several resort towns are located on the shores of Lake Chiemsee. Among them, Prien stands out, located on the western shore of the lake. There are beauty salons known throughout Europe. Another resort town on Lake Chiemsee is Gstadt (northwestern shore of the lake). The resort has numerous cafes and hotels. Here travelers can enjoy Bavarian cuisine and freshly prepared fish.
