The Fraueninsel in Lake Chiemsee with its famous Frauenwörth Benedictine convent is unique and charming.
The Fraueninsel is a neighboring island of the Herreninsel in the Chiemsee, but differs very much from the Königsinsel flair of the Herreninsel.It is a very small island (about twelve hectares) with a picturesque village and a Benedictine monastery. Almost 250 people live in around 50 houses on the car and bicycle-free island, including six out of 16 families on the Chiemsee who still make a living from fishing. The Fraueninsel can be reached with the Chiemsee-Schifffahrt fleet.chiemsee-alpenland.de/entzüge/chiemsee/fraueninsel

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. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frauenchiemsee ,
