Your Professional Real Estate Agent at Chiemsee
Belonging to the district of Rosenheim, Prien is charmingly situated at the foot of the Alps, with a view of the Kampenwand mountain. As the largest community on the Chiemsee, Prien is the cultural and event centre of the region. The cultural calendar of the Upper Bavarian town offers a wide range of events, and of course, the Alpine and lake scenery invite leisure activities in the nature. Because of its size, the Chiemsee is also known as the "Bavarian Sea", and is home to the Herreninsel, Fraueninsel and Krautinsel islands, as well the Schalch, a tiny uninhabited island. The Herreninsel especially enjoys international fame as the location of Herrenchiemsee, the castle of the Bavarian King, Ludwig II. Whether skiing in winter, ascending the Wendelstein on the rack railway, hiking, mountain biking, climbing, swimming or sailing in the Chiemsee, the landscape offers excellent opportunities for leisure activities to suit almost every taste. The city centre is characterised by traditional historical architecture. Cosy cafés and green spaces invite you to linger. A tourist attraction is the historic Chiemsee Bahn, a railway which since 1887 has connected the town with the shipping port on the Chiemsee in the nearby town of Stock. In terms of highways, the community is ideally located between Salzburg in Austria and the Bavarian state capital of Munich. There are also excellent rail connections to these cities. The A8 motorway is close by and ensures that you can quickly go from here in all directions. For you in the best locations – your competent property broker in Prien am Chiemsee is happy to advise you!
