An amazingly beautiful place in Bavaria
Like many of our trips, the trip to Lake Könegsee began with a photo. Many people have probably seen it – a boat on the clearest shade of emerald-colored water. And the water is so clear that you can see the bottom and the fish swimming near the boat.
Good day! Recently I told you about the Bavarian town of Berchtesgaden. Today we will continue to travel in Bavaria and take a boat ride on the mountain lake Konigssee. As you understand from the name, this is the Royal Lake. And it is completely.
Today I would like to take another walk around the two nearby lakes: Königsee and Obersee. To be honest, at the moment these lakes are my most striking impression of Bavaria! You can get to the lakes as from.
not a life, but a fairy tale.
I often think about the fact that when we travel we find amazing places. And even such that we envy ourselves. One of them is Lake Konigsee (Royal Lake) – the biggest celebrity of the state of Berchtesgaden. It is located 600 meters above the lake.
How nice it is, I can’t find the words.
After we had visited the Eagle’s Nest and looked from a height at the beauty of the neighborhood Berchtesgaden, we decided we would definitely visit these places again. The next day we drove straight to the lake Königsee. There are several roads to it, mostly.

Living here is a dream! This is a miracle of God.

#3 Königsee – the cleanest lake in Germany “Secret corners of our planet.
Good time dear friends! Unsuccessful community “Secret corners of our planet” www.drive2.ru/communities/2024/, I continue in my blog.
There are many places in the world where it would be worthwhile to go. For example, to India, to the Himalayas – to stand on top of Mount Elbrus and cast aside the worldly bustle. Share with friends, because each of us can find a dream, which will come true at any time.
Königsee, Germany’s cleanest lake Königsee (‘Royal Lake’), one of the most beautiful natural attractions in Germany, is located in south-eastern Bavaria and belongs to the municipality of Schönau am Königsee. Most of the lake lies within the Berchtesgaden National Park. The emerald pool of crystal-clear water is nestled in the midst of mighty mountains and magnificent alpine scenery. Thanks to its unique nature and picturesque surroundings, the lake is very popular with travelers and tourists.
The Königsee was formed during the last ice age by melting glaciers. It extends from north to south for 7.2 km, ending near the Austrian border, with a maximum width of 1.2 km. The height at which the reservoir lies reaches 602 m above sea level and its maximum depth is 190 m, which makes it the third deepest lake in Germany. The waters of Lake Obersee, which is located to the southeast, flow into it.
Königsee is famous for its clear water and has the status of Germany’s cleanest lake. For this reason, since 1909, it is only allowed to travel on it by electric motor and paddle boats. The highest mountain in the area, the Watzmann (2,713 m), surrounds the eastern part of the lake and is the third highest peak in Germany. It is shrouded in tales and legends, one of which tells us that in ancient times a god turned the Bavarian King Watzmann and his entire family into a huge mountain as punishment for cruelty.
Not far away is Mount Jenner, which rises above the lake at an altitude of 1874 m. With the help of a cable car you can reach its top in 20 minutes and from there you have a really fascinating view of the Königsee.
Due to its location among the steep cliffs, the lake Königsee has a special acoustics – a clear and repeated echo. During a boat ride the captain is sure to show passengers this marvelous natural phenomenon, playing a simple tune on the trumpet. As the lake shore is very steep and densely forested, it is impossible to bypass it on foot or by car, the nearest parking is a few meters from the shore.
On the peninsula, located in the middle of the lake, is the main tourist attraction and popular place of pilgrimage – the Church of St. Bartholomew. It was erected in the 12th century, but acquired its present form, in particular its red onion-shaped domes, in the 15th century.
St. Bartholomew is considered the patron saint of Königsee, so the Bavarian gem has another name – Lake St. Bartholomew. Not far from the church is a former hunting castle of the Bavarian kings (18th century), an ice chapel, the arch of which does not melt even in summer, a small hotel and several seafood restaurants. Here you can also see walking deer, which are fed by monks.
The only island, which is located on the northern tip of the lake, is known for the statue of St. John of Nepomuk, who protects this area from the dangers of water. The height of the marble statue, erected in 1711, is 180 cm. It stands on a hill in the northern part of the island, on top of a two-meter pedestal. There is speculation that earlier there was a statue of St. Bartholomew. The northern bay of the lake is called “Artists’ Corner” – it offers an unusually beautiful view, which is often depicted on their canvases by painters.
Hitler’s Tea House (Eagle’s Nest), another popular attraction of the area, is located on Mount Kielstein at an elevation of 1,834 meters. It was built by Martin Bormann especially for the 50th anniversary of the political leader.
The striking nature of Lake Königsee is treasured by the Germans and its ecological situation is closely monitored. It is rich in rare species of flora and fauna, for example, blue edelweiss. The lake abounds in char and trout, which attracts a large number of professional anglers.
In summer, the Königsee is warm enough, you can swim and fish. In winter all conditions for winter sports such as skiing, sledging, snowboarding, ice skating and curling are available. In addition, the mild climate of the region, clean mountain air and healing mineral waters of local springs will have the most beneficial effect on health and improve their health.
Around the lake there is everything for a pleasant and comfortable holiday: stores, restaurants, cafes, discos, golf clubs, squash and tennis courts, equestrian sports clubs. And in one of the oldest local fish restaurants, which is about 300 years, you can try very tasty trout, cooked according to an ancient recipe.
Koenigssee is accessible from Munich and Salzburg. If you take Munich as a starting point, you will need to take a train to Freilassing, and from there go to Berchtesgaden by train and from there take bus 841 to Schönau am Königsee. You can also take a cab, which will cost about 10 euros. From Salzburg there is a train to Berchtesgaden and a direct bus to the lake.
