“Great place”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

My husband and I went to the Konigssee boat ride and it was awesome. The water was so clear and the sites was out of this world. I highly recommend this place for anybody. We would love to go back soon.

“NIce lake to visit and hike”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

It is a nice lake to visit while in Berchtesgaden. There are lots of hiking trails. One takes you to a glacier. Visit the tourist information center at St. Bartholomae stop.

“Very Touristy, Need to take a boat or hike”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was by far the most touristy, crowded place we visited on our trip - and it was on a Thursday in early May. There is a massively huge parking lot at the end of the road (filled with cars and tour buses) and then, lots of tacky souvenir shops as you walk toward the lake (thus only 4 stars).

The actual lake (the little bit you can actually see) is very beautiful and clear. The setting is gorgeous. To really see the rest you have to either take a boat or take a hike….so make sure you plan for a full day here. The whole area around here is beautiful, so you may prefer to find a smaller, more peaceful place/lake/stream nearby instead.

“Breathtaking is right!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

From the silent, electric boat trip to the beautiful hiking this is a wonderful outing. I only wish we had an entire day to explore. After visiting the Eagle's Nest and looking down over the valley and Konigsee we were excited to take the trip on the clear and peaceful water of the Konigsee. Weather was perfect, but I agree with other reviewers and would return no matter the weather. Can't wait to return to Berchtesgarten for a longer stay…maybe an entire summer!!

“Beautiful lake to visit”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Beautiful lake to visit, great hiking around the lake, which will open some great views for a hiker. Bring a jacket.
