    The island Frauenchiemsee (often called Fraueninsel) is the second largest of the three islands in Chiemsee, in the Upper Bavarian district of Rosenheim, which is the smallest municipality in all of Bavaria. The 15.5-hectare (38-acre) large and car free Fraueninsel houses 300 permanent residents as well as an active Benedictine convent. Frauenchiemsee along with its sister island Herreninsel is one of the main tourist attractions on the Chiemsee, and is famous for the Kloster Liquor spirit, which is produced by the nuns. The school on the island was named Irmengard Gymnasium. ,

    The Campanile, located northwest of the church, a free-standing bell tower, is one of the landmarks of Chiemgau and probably dates back to the 12th century; his baroque onion dome was set up in 1626.
