Herrenchiemsee Palace

In 1878, King Ludwig II began building the 'Bavarian Versailles' — Herrenchiemsee Palace showed the monarch's admiration of King Louis XIV of France. The palace can be reached by a wheelchair-friendly boat trip across Lake Chiemsee. The museums in the New Palace and the Augustine canon seminary are particularly recommended.
