Frauenchiemsee in winter

The municipal area comprises not the lake itself but the islands of Herrenchiemsee (Herreninsel) with its Palaces, Frauenchiemsee and the uninhabited Krautinsel. While the island of Herrenchiemsee with 2.38 km2 (0.92 sq mi) is by far the largest, most of Chiemsee's inhabitants live on 0.15 km2 (0.058 sq mi) Frauenchiemsee.
