We were lucky to visit when the sun was shining and I must say it is a fantastic spot for hiking and also relaxing by the waterside with an unbeatable view. If your are in the salzburg area this is a must visit!

Be sure to take the boat ride. The views of the mountains and the history that was shared was just breathtaking. It is the purest lake in Germany.

Situated near BERCHESTGADEN.... this site has a fairytale location, clear lake, wonderful Mountain Views. A word of warning, if travelling in the Summer please check the expected temperatures... on the day we went it was a " scorcher " made worse by being in a bowl and trapping the heat. The whole area of Berchestgaden is fascinating and being a... More

I visited Berchtesgaden last year and it is stunning the snow skiing is t bars so if your now use to them prepare yourself. Beer was awsome and the sights are to die for.

What a stunning place. Unfortunately it was frozen when we were here this February but you could tell the beauty even in winter. I can't wait to come back and do the boat tour!

It is probably the most beautiful lake trip you can take. The water is blue. The far side has another lake that you can walk round. Large fish are just swimming in the shallows. The Bavarian Alps go straight down to the waters edge. Shonau am Koenigsee has all the amenities you could ever wish for in a holiday destination.... More

As a non-native German speaker, making the solo trek to Konigsee from Salzburg was a bit awkward. Coming here in the beginning of winter was nice because the sun melted the fog and the surrounding mountains glistened white in the light. Good hiking.
