"Perfect location - Schonau and the lake Konigsee" Berchtesgaden by codrutz

Berchtesgaden Travel Guide: 284 reviews and 828 photos

Berchtesgaden is the south-eastern part of Germany, streching inland Austria - about 90% of the Berchtesgaden region. including the National Park is surrounded by Austrian territory. It is only 24km away from the nice city of Salzburg. The main attraction is the lake Konigsee, the cleanest lake of Germany and also one of the nicest in the world, because it is surrounded by majestic mountains. The town most close to Konigsee is Schonau am Konigsee, which is the perfect place to spend a relaxing week looking at the german alps and their third highest peak - Watzmann.
