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.

  • Only looking at the lake: The lake is one of many beautiful lakes there. The water is a dream emerald green. The surrounding mountains are idyllic. Unfortunately, that was it for the positive. Visit....  more »
  • Beautiful views, stunning lake with crystal clear water. But it is neither romantic, nor relaxing place. The trip to this place is really stressful and waste of time and money. Very poorly organised.....  more »
  • 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.
