Chiemsee Reggae Summer is located in a nice rural surroundings.
This (not only this) gives the festival a charming character, and for me, Chiemsee Reggae Summer always seems to be smaller and friendlier than summerjam in Cologne. So I was very surprised to learn, that there have been almost as much visitors as at summerjam. I didn't get this feeling of a big crowded festival over there.
But, as charming as it is, in Bavaria the ganja-law seems to be harder than in Cologne. The scent of herb everywhere, what is "obligate" for a reggaefestival, is missing at Chiemsee Reggae Summer.

Weather nice and hot! The offered shower on the festival area was very welcome! escaping from the heat
