Discover one of the most unique places in Germany in a small group, 10 hour guided tour to the medieval town of Wasserburg Am Inn. Your local guide will provide lots of information about the area and you will have the unique opportunity to visit the 250-year-old Benedictine Abbey Church of St. Marinus and Anianus, the Wieskirche, a traditional Rococo-style church, and Herrenchiemsee Palace and its park in Herreninsel and the charming Benedictine convent on Fraueninsel only in season from April 1 to October 15.



Meet your guide in the morning and begin your journey by visiting the 250-year-old Benedictine Abbey Church of St. Marinus and Anianus which is located close to the Wieskirche, one of the most beautiful and minimalist Rococo churches in Bavaria.

Our next stop is the medieval town of Wasserburg am Inn. The city sits on a peninsula and is framed by the “Inn” river. First, we'll stop at a viewpoint, so you can take some great photos of the city. From there it's a 5 minute walk downhill to the old town. On the way, we will pass through a 500 year old city gate. During your stay in the city, you will be charmed, because there is a multitude of things to admire and discover; like the pastel-colored walls, the bay windows, the ramparts, the medieval gate, and many other hidden treasures. The streets invite you to explore and you will have time to enjoy a cup of coffee, so you can get a taste of the Italian charm before starting the journey to Prien.

After arriving in Prien, you will take a ferry to Frauenchiemsee, or the Isle of Ladies. It's a lovely island in the middle of Lake Chiemsee, and you'll have time for lunch and exploring the island. The main attraction on the island is the still open Benedictine convent. After that, you will take a ferry to the largest island in Lake Chiemsee, Herrenchiemsee, or the Isle of Men. We can either make our way to the castle by horse-drawn carriage or on foot, which takes you around 15 minutes. The castle was built by King Ludwig II as a copy of the Palace of Versailles, and it is admired and considered one of the top attractions to do in Germany. After completing the visit to the castle, you will begin the drive back to Munich.
