Owner description: The emerald-green Königssee near Berchtesgaden is surrounded by steep walls of rock, with the 1800-metre east wall of the Watzmann towering above its west shore.

Lake Konigssee is the highest lake in Germany and is in a National Park created in 1978. It is protected and preserved from private boating and only electric motors are allowed. The boat company runs 40 minute trips to St. Bartholomew about 2/3s down the lake from Konigssee. The boat is window-enclosed and heated for the winter. There is a small chapel and restaurant in addition to spectacular views of the lake and mountains. From Salzburg: Take Bus No. 840 (starts at the main station with stops in town) to Berchtesgaden Hauptbahnhof for 9.5 Euros for a day ticket for all travel. Then take Bus No. 841 to Königssee. The lake cruise costs 13.3 euros

Must take the boat ride along this beautiful nature's pearl all the way to the end at Salet. During the ride on the tranquil water among the huge high mountains, the guide will let you experience the ecco system of the lake by blowing his trumpet. You'll be fascinated by the tones repeated endlessly throughout the lake area.

Had a great time with bobtaxi at 80 miles an hour on this international track. January is when most of the competitions take place.Great restaurant "Echostuebel" at the bottom.

Lovely boat journey with fantastic views. We were given a leaflet in English as the guide spoke only in German. It was a little misty over the mountains but it didn't spoil the enjoyment.

Königssee is amazingly scenic. The boat trip is a bit long for my tastes. (Although it might be worth it it's a means of transportation to St. Bartholomä)
