Kirche St. Bartholomae, Berchtesgaden

4.3
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Berchtesgaden
Atop the Königssee lake with the imposing Watzmann massif as a backdrop, Kirche St. Bartholomae can only be reached by ship or after a long hike across the surrounding mountains. The Baroque church, named after St. Bartholomew the Apostle, was built in 1697. The building features a red, domed roof and stuccowork by Salzburg artist Joseph Schmidt. An annual pilgrimage takes place here in late August. A nearby restaurant and beer garden operate in an old hunting lodge, providing views of the lake and mountains. A visit to Kirche St. Bartholomae represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Berchtesgaden trip builder to plot your vacation.

    Königssee after St. Bartholomä-alone the crossing is a dream - the echo of the trumpet and the target arrived immerse in nature. For families, hikers, or simply to relax everything included! Stroll or just jump into the cold water!

    Unfortunately, everything is very touristy. Especially this becomes one in Schönau at Königssee on the way from the parking lot to the port. A souvenir shop there hunts the other. It's much nicer in St. Bartholomä. The round-trip costs Euro 14.80. That's ok. Especially since it is with small electric-powered vessels and the trip offers beautiful views of the Lake. St. Bartholomä is beautiful and can be found there also corners with hardly any tourists and plenty of rest.

    Church seen from the boat that sails Lake Königsee, one can choose to get off at the terminal and take the environment and of course entering the Church, outside it is picturesque and inside small, decorated, it's cold inside and transmits something mysterious in the surroundings where you will find, worth taking a few minutes to appreciate it and above all take the views offered by the environment where it is.
