Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
Experience the emerald-green waters and idyllic mountain scenery of Konigssee. Formed by glaciers during the last Ice Age, the natural lake is a popular site for boating and watersports. It is said to have the cleanest water in all of Germany. You can take a scenic boat ride across the lake for a laid-back afternoon. Or you can take a long hike around the lush, tree-lined perimeter of the lake and in the surrounding Berchtesgaden National Park. Don't miss the infamous pilgrimage site of St. Bartholomew's church on the lake's western shore at the foot of the Austrian Alps.

  • Must visit and best lake in Bavaria. Should go on boat. Wonderful natural feels here
  • Worth to visit this cleanest lake of Europe. It is near Austrian boarder but in Bavaria Germany 265 Kilometers from Munich. It is amazing.
  • incredibly beautiful place! Would love to visit again for the upper lake!! p.s. remember to try the drinking water there :)
  • The sightseeing is no doubt spectacular. Super clean and nice lake. Although horrible waiting queue for the boat, worth waiting.
  • Stunning.The boats are all electrically driven,so no pollution to the lake.Just take in the scenery.
