"Konigssee" Königssee by alancollins

Königssee Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 106 photos


Konigssee is just outside Berchtesgaden. As you drive into the area you have to use the large open air car park because the small town is pedestrianised. On route to the lake you have the usual array of tourist shops selling goods from the area.

Outstanding Beauty

This part of Bavaria is an area of outstanding beauty. The Konigssee is surrounded by steep walls of the mountains, which means there are no paths to walk around the lake.


If you get off the boat at Salet the end of its journey you can walk to the Obersee which takes about 10 minutes. It is worth the journey because of the way the clear lake reflects everything.

    I?ve never been to Königssee, but it certainly does look beautiful in your tips and travelogues. I?m glad the town is car-free.
