Lake Konigsee (King's Lake)

Pilgrimage church St. Bartholomew's in Schonau at Lake Konigsee

Majestic in its aura and splendor, ringed by towering cliffs, Lake Konigsee resembles a fjord set in the Bavarian Alps.

The East Face of Mount Watzmann rises to nearly 6.000ft, while Lake Konigsee itself is more than 600ft deep.

Pilgrimage church St. Bartholomew

The Roman Catholic pilgrimage church of St. Bartholomew, the big attraction on Lake Konigsee, can only be approached by boat.

The pilgrimage church, famous throughout the world, parts of which originate from the 12th century, lies on a picturesque peninsula.

Next to it, you can find an idyllic tavern, which was once a hunting lodge.


In the middle of the National Park

It is situated in the heart of the Berchtesgaden National Park, which the Bavarian government established in 1978 in order to preserve the beauty of the lake and the surrounding mountains.

Thus the Weiss-Blaue Flotte, whose ships sail on Lake Konigee, Germany's cleanest mountain lake, follows stringent environmental standards.
