Dear festival visitor,
the management of the Herrenchiemsee Festival will, during the festival, do all that we can, alongside programme contents oriented to the personality of Ludwig II and the history of the island, to bring the courtly routine to life through the interval arrangements, liveried staff and much more besides. We would therefore be pleased if audiences would play their part by dressing accordingly. By adorning Ludwig II's gardens and palace with evening gowns, black tie, dark suits, dirndl or regional costume, you would be paying your respects to this great yet tragic king of the late-Romantic era.
The Box Office for concerts on Fraueninsel and Herreninsel is located at Prien/Stock harbour, at the Info Desk of the Chiemsee Schifffahrt building.
