It was my first time at the Lake Chiemsee, we visited the women's island which is called "Fraueninsel" in german and of course the "Herreninsel" also on the island Chiemsee. The imagery is mixed, I haven't sorted them by islands. In the first image you are looking at the Bell Tower on the Frauenchiemsee or also called Fraueninsel, the architecture intrigued me immediately, so that I just had to capture it for you. Regrettably, we had not enough time to visit the Fraueninsel slightly longer. The reason for this was our ferry which we had to take back on time. But I can honestly say that I was able to collect enough snapshots for this posting to give you a little insight of what we explored in the beautiful Bavaria. Now some facts: The Chiemsee is Bavaria's largest lake, to those who don't know, it's 60km away and placed in the south east of Munich. We visited the Herrenchiemsee Palace, also known as the New Palace, which is one of the most famous and largest buildings of King Ludwig II of Bavaria's palaces. The Herrenworth Palace was truly huge and breathtaking. The architecture displays important aspects of Baroque style. The canopy, or no no the capes of the canopy in the fourth picture were sewn 7 years by 30 seamstresses and are worth as much as the Herreninsel. Incomprehensible!
