Description

Chiemsee is a freshwater lake in Bavaria, Germany, between Rosenheim, Germany, and Salzburg, Austria. It is often called the Bavarian Sea. The rivers Tiroler Achen and Prien flow into the lake; the river Alz, out of it.
The region around the Chiemsee is Chiemgau and is a famous recreation area.
Two of the main islands on the lake are Herrenchiemsee (biggest island) and Frauenchiemsee, also called Herreninsel (gentleman island) and Fraueninsel (woman island), respectively. The third main island, Krautinsel (weed island), is smaller than Frauenchiemsee and is uninhabited.
Herrenchiemsee has a castle built by King Ludwig II in 1878, also called Herrenchiemsee, which was never completed but was meant to be a replica of the Palace of Versailles, in France. Many of the rooms of the castle are open to tourists; tours of the castle and its extensive grounds on the island are conducted throughout summer.
Frauenchiemsee is the smaller of the two major islands on the Chiemsee, and houses a Benedictine nunnery, built in 782, as well as a small village. The nuns make a liquor called Klosterlik├Âr (cloister liquor) and a very good marzipan (almond paste).
The panorama was taken from the Kampenwand mountains, from a distance of around 15km.
Focal length is 600mm.
