Bird watching

at Lake Chiemsee

Nature guides will show you some of the more than 300 native bird species around Lake Chiemsee.

The Chiemsee is known for its diverse flora and fauna. Over 300 different bird species have been sighted here. That's why Lake Chiemsee nature guides are happy to take you along for bird watching. These take place all year round around the lake and are free of charge and without registration.

You can find all the dates for the guided tours in our events calendar.

Bird watching towers

Towers and platforms invite you to observe nature on particularly beautiful sections of the bank.

For example, in Seebruck there is one in Burgham behind the forest and one in the spa park to the left of the Roman "Darre". In Grabenstätt you will find the towers in the Hirschau Bay where the Tiroler Ache flows into Lake Chiemsee and in Hagenau, from where you have a great view of the Achendelta and the mountain panorama. The platform in Chieming is barrier-free and at the parking lot of the Klinik Alpenhof. You can find the tower in Übersee after a walk from the lido Übersee along the bank path. You can discover the tower in Grassau when you explore the Kendlmühlfilze on the Moorrundweg.

Seeadler*in sucht Partner*in

Genderwahnsinn? Nein. Es ist nur so, dass selbst Vogelexperten nicht mit Gewissheit sagen können, ob der Seeadler am Chiemsee ein Weibchen oder Männchen ist.
