Cultural highlights during your vacation in Chiemgau
The beautiful region of Chiemgau offers you sheer countless opportunities for various leisure activities during your holiday. Those interested in culture should definitely not miss a visit to the Castle Hohenaschau. The Castle Hohenaschau was built by Arnold and Konrad Hirnberg at the end of the 12th century.
