Information on your visit

Current information

Reservations are only made for groups of 15 or more. Individual travellers can get tickets at the ticket offices at the jetty on the island.

In the Augustinian Monastery only the Library Hall, the Julius Exter Gallery and the Maler am Chiemsee Gallery are open to the public until further notice due to conversion work. The entrance fee for the Augustinian Monastery is therefore currently reduced to 2.50 euros (reduced rate 2 euros).

Due to ongoing construction work in the New Palace, restrictions are to be expected when visiting the Dining Room and the Porcelain Cabinet.

Opening hours

Herrenchiemsee New Palace and the Augustinian Monastery are open daily.

Public holidays: all buildings are closed on 1 January, Shrove Tuesday and 24/25/31 December.
