We understand that the winter is over and spring hasn't begun but the service and enthusiasm was pretty poor up here. One you are in the boats you are a captive market. I'd suggest bringing your own lunch and drinks.

Surrounded by snow capped mountains and frozen water when I was there, it's pretty. White snow on the ground, it's very picturesque and cold.

The church is an iconic landmark for the boat trip. It looks more photo generic when you are still in the boat with mountain and trees!

If you visit Königssee, do also visit St. Bartholomä church. If you don't like a long walk, you can only reach it by boat. Don't mind the price. The trip gives you views of the lake you would otherwise never get.

I feel a bit uncomfortable reviewing a church, but it is a tourist attraction here, so here goes. The image of the church from the outside is known from every tourist guide, but unfortunately that was all there was for me. It wasn't so easy...More

Get down at the last stop - Salet. You can go walking to Obersee. Hike. And then get back to the pier. Make sure you start early. The ticket counter is crowded and the last boat leaves sometime between 16:00-18:00
