When the days start to get longer again and nature awakens from its winter hibernation, the Chiemsee shore path – a guided path around the lake – is the perfect way for visitors to marvel at the beauty of spring. Smell the sweet scents of flowers in bloom or listen to the relaxing twitter of the returning birds. In summer, beaches and grilled fish are the order of the day at the Bavarian Seaside. Enjoy the warm summer evenings with open air music, beach parties on the shore or tasty cocktails in one of the many chill-out bars.
Fall is the perfect time of year for walks through the region’s unspoiled natural areas. Make your way through the colorful rustling leaves and round off the day with a hearty Bavarian meal at one of the many cozy eateries around the lake! In the cold Bavarian winter, Chiemsee takes on a special charm. It is the perfect time to see both Chiemsee islands and to get away from it all. Warm yourself up after a walk through the winter wonderland with a hot chocolate at one of the lake’s inviting cafes.
