"Chiemsee! When I close my eyes, be it anywhere, and I hear water lapping against ship planks, memories of my early days awake in me, memories of hours I dreamed away in a boat, surrounded only by the lake and the sky above." Ludwig Thoma (Bavarian Writer, 1867-1921).

Not only Ludwig Thoma was so fascinated by the Chiemsee, Bavaria's largest lake, that he kept such a vivid memory of it to his dying day, but also a countless number of tourists who visit the lake and its surroundings every year. Besides the beauty of the landscape, the region also offers plenty to make your holiday as interesting and exciting as possible.

Many places around Chiemsee offer a wide array of outdoor activities: fishing, bathing resorts, outdoor swimming pools, balloon rides, golf, and much more. In addition, Chiemsee is also the site of the two first-class spas Bad Endorf and Prien.
