Lake Königssee

Schönau on Königssee, St. Bartholomä Pilgrimage Church

The Königssee is nestled in the midst of the mountains of Berchtesgaden National Park, below the mighty Watzmann.  Its emerald-green color has entranced visitors since time immemorial.   Also on the Königssee is the pilgrimage church of St. Bartholomä, a former hunting lodge of the Bavarian kings.

A ferry ride on this beautiful lake is one of those experiences that make a trip to Germany truly unforgettable.
