Ok, I would like to mention that our kids had great fun, but my husband I guess is a kid too. It is just a little different thing to see and we all enjoyed it very much

This is one of the most gorgeous areas in Bavaria. Located approximately 100 km from Munich. You can drive or take the train. We drove our car to Prien Bahnhof. After 12 on weekends the parking is free in front of the train station. We took the steam train to reach the port and then the boat to Frauen Insel away from the crowd So we did not do the Herren Insel where Ludwig castle is located. Both rides were great and enjoyable. The kids loved it and is highly recommended. Take towels and enjoy the water, leave enough time for R+R and a walk around the island with breath taking gardens and houses. It takes about 30 minutes leisurely walk.
The train stops working at 6 pm. The last boat to Prien is at 8 pm, check the train and boat schedule as they may change. We walked (15 minutes) from Prien port to the train station to our car

The train takes you from Prien am Chiemsee Bahnhof to Chiemsee Pier, from which you can take ships to Schloss Herrenchiemsee or Fraueninsel. It was quite cool as it was my first time in a steam train.

The Chiemsee-Bahn is a cute little forest green engine and carriages that runs from Prien station to the Prien/Stock Harbour for ferries across Lake Chiemsee. It usually runs from mid-May to mid-September in peak season, and spends its winters having a little TLC (it is about 130 years old and deserves a bit of down time!)

When we visited Lake Chiemsee we were driving between Salzburg and Munich so it made more sense for us to park nearer the Harbour, but we were excited to see the train when it arrived. I believe there is both a steam train, and a diesel made to look like a steam train so watch out for that little sleight of hand!

When it comes to accessibility I don't think the train is that great unfortunately, mostly because of the age of it. I think access to the platform is limited and the train isn't much better.

If we went back to Lake Chiemsee I think I would definitely like to park further away from the harbour and give the train a try. I think kids would love a trip on the train as well, in fact, who wouldn't love a trip on a bright green steam engine?!
