Schloss Herrenchiemsee
  • #culture

Herrenchiemsee New Palace

Ludwig II of Bavaria – the “Fairy Tale King” and avid builder of castles and palaces. He wanted to construct his own Versailles in Bavaria. This was, in brief, his idea when work commenced on his Herrenchiemsee New Palace. This extraordinary Baroque vision (although unfinished at Ludwig’s death) is located on the Herreninsel Island in Lake Chiemsee and can be reached by boat from Prien in a 15 minute crossing. Once you’re on the lake, it is also a good idea to visit the picturesque village and convent on the Fraueninsel island. All this is just 45 minutes by car from the Alperie.

Kapitelplatz und Festung Hohensalzburg in Salzburg

Salzburg

What a seal of approval – Salzburg has been described as a city of “outstanding value to humanity” by UNESCO, which put it on its World Heritage List in 1997. The dignified Hohensalzburg Castle thrones majestically over Salzburg on the Festungsberg while shimmering in turquoise tones in the sun, the River Salzach meanders through Mozart’s city of birth. The Salzburg Festival every summer is the very epitome of international cultural events. It is just 90 minutes by car from the Alperie to Austria’s fourth-largest city. We definitely consider Salzburg well worth a visit..

Sunrise over the Brecherspitz

The Brecherspitz is the ideal destination for a sunrise tour in the Bavarian Prealps, particularly in late autumn when the days do not start at too early an hour. Starting from the Alperie, you can climb to the peak of Schliersee’s very own mountain in about 2½ hours; you’ll need to be surefooted, have a head for heights, wear stout shoes, take a torch/headlamp with you and have some experience of mountaineering.

Tobogganing on the Firstalm

Tobogganing on the Firstalm is not only possible when the skies are blue and the sun shines – the illuminated run means that it can also be used in the evening from December to mid-March. Starting from the Spitzingsattel car park, there is an easy roughly 40-minute ascent on foot to the Obere Firstalm; or you can take the alternative route from the Kurvenlift car park via the Untere Firstalm. Toboggans can be hired for €6; the run (without steep sections or dangerous curves and thus suitable for children), extends more than 2.5 kilometres down into the valley.

Stand-up paddling on Lake Schliersee

Softly and smoothly you glide over the gentle waves – just you, your board and your paddle. Stand-up paddling is becoming increasingly more popular. In contrast with many other lakes in Bavaria, SUP is possible on Lake Schliersee (although not allowed in certain sections). It is important that you first obtain suitable lessons and make sure you have a leash that connects you with your board so that it can’t drift out of reach if you fall off. SUP equipment can be hired from Watersport Gerauer, Alpin & Outdoor, the Schliersee minigolf course and Café Milchhäusl.
