Fraueninsel – «Ladies’ Island»

It will take 40 minutes to go around a tiny Ladies’ Island in the lake Chiemsee, with a permanent population of no more than 300 people. However, it is worth spending at least half a day to feel the local pace of life. A Benedictine nunnery Frauenwörth or Kloster Frauenchiemsee is the center of attraction here. It was founded in 782 by Tassilo III, Duke of Bavaria. Later, the nunnery building was reconstructed several times.

The Frauenwörth nunnery is visited primarily by those who dream to become parents: it is believed that the nunnery’s patroness, the Blessed Irmengard helps in this. Moreover, a whole wall, lined with photographs of babies who were born after their parents visited the monastery, goes to prove that. The monastery, founded in VIII century, is currently home to around 50 nuns. Like centuries ago, they prepare marzipan and herbal liqueur “Chiemseer Klosterlikör”, as well as supply fruits and vegetables from their garden to the island restaurants.

There is another attraction of Fraueninsel - millennial lime trees in its center, under which, as the local legend implies, the druids organized ritual dances. Make sure to attend fish restaurants which serve simple, but high-quality and delicious food! It is possible to get to the island all year round, by a small ferry from the towns of Gstadt, Prien and Seebruck.
