The Fraueninsel is the second largest of the three islands in the Chiemsee after the Herreninsel. It belongs to the municipality of Chiemsee in the Upper Bavarian district of Rosenheim, the smallest political municipality in Bavaria. On the 15.5-hectare, car-free Fraueninsel, around 50 houses consistently live around 300 residents (for comparison: on the 238-hectare Herreninsel, on the other hand, only a few people live all year round). This settlement on the island forms the place Frauenchiemsee, which is why the two terms Fraueninsel (= island) and Frauenchiemsee (= place) are often used synonymously.
