Last train leaves Prien at 11.51 pm.

 

By air:

Salzburg airport is app. 65 km from Prien, Munich airport app. 120 km.

 

By ferry to the Herreninsel:

Special concert ferries depart from Prien/Stock at 5.15 pm, 5.45 pm and 6.00 pm for the Herreninsel or Fraueninsel as the case may be. The concert ticket also entitles you to take any of the scheduled ferries at an earlier time.

Ships depart Gstadt for Herreninsel at 17.15h
Ships depart Gstadt for Fraueninsel at 16.50, 17.20, 17.50h

After the concerts ferries leave app. 30, 45 and 60 minutes after the final applause for Prien/Stock. There is only one ferry to Gstadt, leaving app. 45 minutes after the final applause (calling in by request at Fraueninsel).
    
It is about 15 minutes' walk from the quayside to the palace. There is plenty of time to reach the ferry after the concert without hurrying. The fare is included in the price of the concert ticket. The current summer ferry timetable can be found under www.chiemsee-schifffahrt.de.

The horse-drawn carriage from the quayside to the palace is a romantic alternative to walking. However the drive is only possible in daylight, in other words before the concert.

For disabled visitors, a minibus shuttle service is available after the concerts.
