Herrenchiemsee PalaceThe solitary island Herrenchiemsee in beautiful lake Chiemsee was bought in 1873 by King Ludwig II. Of Bavaria. He wanted to realize one of his dreams, his own copy of Versailles Palace. In its monumental architecture and opulent furnishings this palace became the young Bavarian King’s most sumptuous one. All over, also in the park, reference is made to the French Bourbon Kings whom he greatly admired. The romantic place, which can be reached by passenger boats is one of the touristic highlights south of Munich.
- In 1948, the convention to prepare the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Germany took place in a former monastery on Herrenchiemsee island. This is documented in a museum at the original venue.
