We took a boat roundtrip tour on the Königssee which was a really nice trip with many photo opportunities. The boat also stopped on the extremely clear water for the guide to play the trumpet demonstrating the most clear echo I have ever heard. Cruising...More

Visited the church today. It is very small but very cute inside. Nice stain glass windows. Limited seating inside.

As the beauty of the lake is so good the Church takes a back seat. In other circumstances this would have received a higher rating for sure. But compared to Koenigsee and Obersee this comes a poor second unfortunately

We rode the boat over on a beautiful sunny afternoon. This area is breathtaking and great for photos. There are places to eat, drink, and use the restroom. A good stop on the boat ride.

I have my fair share of church sightseeings and this one isn't anything extraordinary. Let's be honest. It's beautiful because of its location, not for its architectural design. While the exterior may render some interests, its interior is solemnly plain.

It is picture worthy. You can also enjoy the breath taking view of the lake and mountains around it. Take the boat trip and alight at St Bartholoma . Great place for couples!

There's only 2 ways to reach this landmark church. Either by completing the 40 kilometre circular trek of the local Baverian Mountains or ferry from Konigssee. In either case you will be richly rewarded. The interior of the church is quite simple but reflects the...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
