A Nice Stop

This is the first stop on the Konigssee boat trip and well worth the time visiting. The beautiful red dome is an iconic view in the Konigssee experience.

The only way to get to this place is by either hiking or taking a boat. The lake and cliffs along its side are just beautiful, and there is a section were there is a great echo on the lake. The views looking up on to the alps is fantastic. Next to the church is a restaurant that serves great... More

You can reach here via ferry or tracking.Most of the people choose ferry option which in itself is amazing.View of the lake in midst of hills is spectacular experience in itself.When you reach here, you find yourself very close to lush green forest.It was one of the best places I have ever visited.A Must visit if you are in Austria/Germany.

romantic place. Take a boat over the Konigsee and arrive at this small chapel. Very nice place. Romantic. Stunning view to the mountains around! But in summer this place is very touristic.

St. Bartholomä sits in the middle of a national park. The only access is by electric boat. This once monastery and then royal hunting lodge, has a biergarden and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It is a most relaxing way to spend a few hours and enjoy the best fish(trout) ever. An experience that shouldn't be missed.

Do not miss the walk thru the town populated with caffees and little restaurants, look at architecture and wall paintings supported by window sills fresh vivacious flowers. This is Bavaria from the postcards. I loved the sights. And the courtyard that includes the church, museum and other buildings was worth a moment of admiration. What a marvel of architecture, just...

This was a surprise. Here we were in Berchtesgaden, in one very beautiful place in Germany. The Eagle's Nest could just be seen from our restaurant. How they built that can only be described as an engineering marvel. Truly one of the most interesting places we have ever visited. The lunch like all German restaurants - huge servings of wonderful... More

Well worth the stop along the lake. There is food, toilets and nice walking paths around this petite church.

Astounding environment surrounding a romantic (although religious building). The water is so clear and the ambience of the mountains and the lake makes it almost guaranteed to see the church reflecting on the lake.
