Contest #769 – Frauenchiemsee, Bavaria, Germany

Frauenchiemsee 1

Site of Frauenwörth, a Benedictine convent from the 8th century, this picturesque island is one of the prime tourist spots in Chiemsee. Visitors are particularly fond of the liquor made by the nuns. No cars or even bikes are allowed on the island.

Your fellow contestant Garfield lives not too far away and has been to the island many times before. She also mentions the Christmas market, which sounds quite wonderful, and labels the place “a gem of Bavarian culture and way of life”. Thank you for that wonderful description!
