Take the electric boat ride on the lake. It's absolutely gorgeous and the cleanest lake in Germany. Flanked by mountains, this little gem is worth visiting.

We hiked down to this lovely village from Karlingerhaus on Lake Funtinsee. It is set in the southwest corner of the lake and is dominated by the limestone cliffs, the crystal clear lake, and the red roofed Chapel of St Bartholomew (patron saint of alpine farmers). We lunched at the beer garden (excellent) before taking the ferry ride to the... More

The lake was really fantastic. My husband and I took the boat trip on a sunny day in March 2014. Weather was so nice, sky was so blue, it was like heaven. We appreciated the idea of using clean energy on the electric powered boat because no smell from the engine, no noise to disturb the beautiful surroundings. If you... More

We happened upon this beautiful lake by chance when trying to go and see Hitler's Eagle's Nest - which is closed until May. Oh well, this more than made up for it. We took a cruise along this enormous lake on an electric powered cruiser. So glad we didn't go in summer as apparently the lines to buy a ticket... More

I visited This lake in a very cold winter day, so the boat rides were cancelled due to a storm risk. Anyway, I could hike around the lake for some stunning views and couldn't have enjoyed it more than I had. Really liked it and now hope to come back during spring or fall to check it again but from... More

A short scenic boat trip with a nice walking place at the end, great afternoons entertainment, even a decent meal at the landing stage.

I have taken the electric boat trip across Konigsee many times to the Church and restaurant - as well as the second leg of the trip to the "hintersee". I highly recommend this trip, even if you don't speak any German. The scenery is breathtaking. The biergarten restaurant is very good and a great place to stop for a rest.... More

My family had fallen asleep by the time we pulled up to the lake. My first reaction was that I was never going to get them out to look at water, but by the time we left I had a hard time getting them back in the car. It really is a stunning location. Additionally we stopped by the bobsled... More

The day my son - who lives in Bavaria - took me to Konigssee, it was very cloudy. I had wanted so much to ride a cable car to the top of Mt. Jenner and see the lake from that vantage point. Fortunately, at the base of Mt. Jenner, we noticed there was a webcam showing the view at the... More
