|The train station at Prien am Chiemsee, which translates to "Prien on the Chiemsee"|
The Chiemsee is a large freshwater lake. In the middle of the lake is an island. And on the island is a castle. The castle is yet another castle built by the Walt Disney of Bavarian history, Mad King Ludwig. Bavaria is downright lousy with castles built by Mad King Ludwig. And he was deposed (removed from the throne via death) (as opposed to subpoenaed and subject to questioning under oath while a court reporter prepares the transcript), King Ludwig was deposed before he could complete another half dozen or so castles he had planned.
But first, the Haribo Bear!

|Disembarking. Which is not called "de-boating," even though if we were on an airplane this would be called "de-planing"|
|No. Not this kind of "hoofing" it|

So it was time to leave Herrenchiemsee.
