Rosenheim Private Walking Tour With A Professional Guide

Chiemsee, Germany

Right out of the imaginary of the typical bavarian town, Rosenheim has it all. Near to lake Chiemsee, where king Ludwig II built his version of Versailles, known as Herrenchiemsee, it is also the scenery for the german TV series “Die Rosenheim Cops”. Once one of the most important satellite cities around Munich, it’s salines powered the region with the richnesses of the “white gold”. The Romans came here in 15 BC under the rule of Tiberius, founding the city and creating roads going east to west and north to south that all passed the city. The city lies also at the banks of the river Inn, another great water highway of the past. The name of this city is also shrouded in mystery. Supposedly, the Inn boatmen knew there were many beauties in this town, therefore calling it "home of the Rose", or Rosenheim. The Bavarian beauties still populate the area, in the landscape, buildings and it’s multicultural inhabitants that are proud to say that Rosenheim has a mediterranean flair.
