When you go to Konigssee, you have to take a tourist boat to see the lake. Once you see St Bartholomew's Church, it is realy an amazing view. Especially the nature around is breathtakingly beautiful!

you access this church from a lovely 35 minutes boat ride along the lake and it is well worth the journey. The commentary is in German though, so if that isn't your strong suit, get a guidebook

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
