The region of Prien am Chiemsee is a luscious landscape that bursts with traditional Bavarian culture and stunning natural splendour; pristine palaces, verdant hills, mystical woodlands and architectural delights combine in this dynamic and diverse area. The town centre boasts an alluring lakeside location and smattering of appealing attractions; richly decorated houses give a characteristic culture to the town while regular departures to the lake’s floating islands make it an ideal springboard for exploration.
Hailed as the region’s most significant sacred structure, the Pfarrkirche Maria Himmelfahrt is a glorious church whose kaleidoscopic and captivating interior has made it a symbol of national importance. The decadent design is a masterpiece of artistic extravagance akin to Rome’s Sistine Chapel.
In the midst of the glittering lake resides an incredible island home to one of Germany’s most luscious landmarks. Upon Herreninsel, a magnificent monastery presents a beautifully baroque façade that has been altered and embellished throughout the centuries.
Prien’s former town hall is now home to one of the region’s most important artistic exhibitions. The Art Gallery boasts an eclectic collection of contemporary and classic art that straddles both regional and international styles. Some of the most impressive pieces are housed in the Biedermeier Room, where religious folk art reigns supreme.
Housed in a rich and rustically decorated country house, the Rehman Restaurant refines and reworks regional specialities in order to give them contemporary flavour and flair. Enormous windows suffuse the exquisite eatery with sunshine, creating an ambient and appealing atmosphere in which to dine upon tender grilled meats, field fresh vegetables and cjust baked bread.
