#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Berchtesgaden
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • The inside of the church is small and nothing special and the church is really just a small piece of the awesome experience that is Königssee/Obersee.  more »
  • The church is very beautiful outside, on mountains background, but nothing special inside. Pleasant restaurant serving trout. Try to visit it in a lunch time, to eat here.  more »
