Don't bother checking out the interior unless you plan to stop for a bite at one of the restaurants. It's a lovely feature as part of a landscape photo, but it's quite bare bones inside.

We took the boat to the church and the ride was fantastic. The echo of the trumpet in the middle of the lake was fascinating. Koenigssee had lovely restaurants around the lake and the fish was delicious

It was a wonderful, easy, peaceful outing surrounded by amazing mountains and greenery, I spent 3 hours just walking around the woods, looking at the lake and just drink in the serenity of this place. Simply beautiful!

Worth to step out from the ferry on the ride to the other side of Köningsee. Although nothing special to do except visiting the church and having a snack or drink in the cafes beside.

We saw St.Bartholomew´s Church on the boat trip by Lake Koenigs See. It was a nice experience, also a shorter walk through the woods around the church.

Get down at the last stop - Salet. You can go walking to Obersee. Hike. And then get back to the pier. Make sure you start early. The ticket counter is crowded and the last boat leaves sometime between 16:00-18:00
