Julius Exter is one of the most famous Chiemsee painters. His works hang in the Chiemsee painter gallery on Herrenchiemsee (all year round) and in the Exterhaus in Übersee (open in summer). Friends of contemporary art will always find high-quality works of international art at Maximum Traunreut.
400 years ago, the Chiemgau-Area developed into an important salt trading region. The Salz & Moor Museum in Grassau, the brine pipeline exhibition and the open-air museum in the Salinenpark in Traunstein and the Holzknechtmuseum in Ruhpolding. Many other museums take guests back to the times of farmers and brewers, Romans and Celts, glaciers and mammoths.
