Kirche St. Bartholomae, Berchtesgaden

(4.3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Since spring, the boats on Lake King drive only to St. Bartolomä we have used the sunny day. It was busy, yet, in and disembarkation was quickly settled.
