Schloss Wildenwart

(Pass by)

In the middle of the idyllic foothills of the Alps only a few kilometres from Lake Chiemsee is the historic castle ensemble Wildenwart. After the assumption of power by the revolutionary government, the Bavarian royal family, including Ludwig III, met at Wildenwart Castle, which was to become the new home for the Wittelsbach family. In 1979, Max Herzog in Bavaria, great-grandson of Ludwig III, moved with his family into the castle, which can be visited from the outside.

Prien am Chiemsee

In Prien we board a boat of the Chiemsee fleet, which takes us across the lake to the island Herreninsel (ticket is not included in the tour price).

Schloss Herrenchiemsee

Herrenchiemsee Palace was to become a replica of the Palace of Versailles, the residence of the French "Sun King" Louis XIV. For financial reasons, however, the most magnificent and expensive castle of the Bavarian King Ludwig II had to be terminated prematurely. On a 35-minute guided tour, which is well worth seeing, you will visit all completed, but also some unfinished rooms. ***** Skip-the-Line Admission (2023) Adults € 11.00 / Children under 18 years are free) ***** Your admission ticket also grants you free access to the so-called "Old Castle", a former monastery building from the 8th century (!) with overwhelming Baroque furnishings. You will also see some very interesting rooms where Ludwig lived during the construction of the castle, as well as the site of the 1948 Constitutional Convention. Located in the historic building complex, a restaurant offers, among other things, fresh Chiemsee fish and a beer garden with a top view over Lake Chiemsee and its other islands.

Gstadt am Chiemsee

Back on the mainland, you can enjoy the most beautiful view over the lake with the Alps in the background from the Malerwinkel in Gstadt.

Did you know that a private station was built especially for him on the railway line Munich - Salzburg? We'll show it to you!

The Eagle's Nest

OPTIONAL (only possible with the 11-hour tour length "XXL-Time credit"): The Eagle's Nest can be reached from May to October with special buses from the Obersalzberg plateau near Berchtesgaden (depending on snow conditions). The building, enthroned in a spectacular location at over 1,800 m (5,900 ft) above sea level was built - including the 6.5 km long access road - in just 13 months under mostly the most difficult conditions for the workers at the behest of Martin Bormann. From the bus terminus you can reach the original elevator through a 124-meter-long tunnel, which takes you to the 'Kehlsteinhaus', as it is called in German, now operated as a restaurant, after another 124 meters. ***** Skip-the-Line Admission Eagle's Nest (2023 - bus ride incl. lift) : Adults € 30.80 / Children 6 to 14 years: € 16.00 ***** Please note that as part of the "11 hours" option, you can EITHER combine Lake Chiemsee with the Eagle's Nest OR with Salzburg.

Stephen was a fabulous guide for our private trip to Ludwig II third palace and Salzburg. In spite of occasional showers, he got us to the correct ferries and on the next English tour. We had a lovely lunch stop at charming neighboring island. Then, special stops at Sound of Music locations and a walking tour of old town Salzburg - with plenty of history along the way! It was a great day thanks to Stephen! Highly recommend any tour with him!
