or the second part of the forgotten journey…
We stayed 4 days at our friends’ place in Glonn and apart of Munich and their village we also managed to see an island called Herreninsel at the lake Chiemsee. You can reach the island only by boat, e.g. from a harbor in Prien. And that’s what we did. But because it was a sunny Sunday, many other people did the same and the place didn’t seem to be as welcoming as it would be otherwise.
After about half an hour in which we watched the peaceful water surface, clear sky and occasional boats, we finally reached the land to discover a copy of Versailles built by the King Ludwig II of Bavaria. The castle was surrounded by trimmed greenery, singing birds, colorful leaves. The sunny autumn weather decorated grey sculptures around the castles and made them look more distinguished. A stone lion really looked alive (at least to our friends’ son) and surrounding mythical characters seemed to invite to dance (at least to some people turning around Apollo’s feet).
Unfortunately, we had no time to visit the nearby island Fraueninsel, which is said to be less attractive anyway. But we hope to come back there one day to enjoy Bavarian nature, hospitality and delicious food again.
