Beautiful mountain lake with a ferry that takes you to a couple of stops across the lake. On the lakes far side there are hiking trails that lead off to other sights. A beautiful stop and enjoyable day.

We visited Königssee for our 1 year wedding anniversary, we love the place, it's so magical and there are plenty of activities to do while you're near the lake, we had fresh buttermilk from one of the farms in Salet, we also saw many cows on the mountain, we were amazed by the echo of the mountains when the boat...

Beautiful lake and town, nice weather, poor public transport, so my friend and I had to call taxis all the time. I would suggest buying return tickets to Salet for a cheaper price, however, on our visit, weather forecast said there could be rain, so we first bought return to st bartholomä, and when we arrived, the rain was still...

The lake has emerald green and clear waters with beautiful views of the Alps. Take a boat trip on the lake - so relaxing and make sure you have your camera!

The Königssee is a very clean and clear lake. Nearly all of the boats on the lake are electric to keep the water quality. Taking the boat towards Bartholomä or even Salet is very enjoyable and quiet way to travel. On the way to Bartholomä the guard on board will give some information and at some point the boat stops...

The area is made for tourists, lined with souvenir shops and cafes, also a beer garden, very pleasant. We went on the boat trip up to the church and although they crammed us in you could still see what the tour guide was talking about, taking pictures was a bit more difficult. The echo wall was brilliant, well worth the... More

Beautiful lake, great old Church and the best fish ever. Take care in buying your boat tickets, there are several. After we spent the morning on the lake enjoying watching the fog lift and exposing the mountain sides and the Onion Church in the distance, what a view. We returned to the dock and found this little place that served... More

I want to kayak on this body of water. I want to sit alongside this body of water and sip coffee. I want to read a book alongside it. Instead, I drove by it and briefly stopped to take in the scenery and the mountains and the beautiful blue color of the water.
