Dear festival visitor,

The Herrenchiemsee Festival is dedicated to the person of King Ludwig II and the history of the island. So it is our special concern to revive the ambience of that time by the break organization, the livrierte personnel and much more. We would be delighted if you could contribute to the special atmosphere of the festival with festive clothing or traditional costume.


Concert Box Office

The Box Office for concerts on Fraueninsel and Herreninsel is located at Prien/Stock harbour, at the Info Desk of the Chiemsee Schifffahrt building. During the Festival the Box Office is open daily from 16.45 – 18.30h for collecting prepaid tickets booked at short notice and for purchasing any remaining tickets. For the concerts on Fraueninsel, an additional Box Office outside Frauenchiemsee Cathedral will open from 17.45h to 18.45h.
There is no box office on Herreninsel.

Another ship departs to Gstadt harbour approximately 45 minutes after the final applause (if needed, also Fraueninsel)

Unfortunately it will still be technically impossible on hot summer days to do anything about the heat in the Hall of Mirrors.

When considering the price of the tickets, quite apart from the quality of the music, we would ask you to bear in mind the services listed above.
