Hi there, I can not recommend this place during summer time for families with small kids although it has a beautiful view. Be prepared to wait for half an hour or longer in the bare sun to get a ticket, to enter the boat to...More

This is classic Barvarian mountains and lakes. The boat rides do not fill up as there are boats leaving every 5 minutes. As with all things German they move thousands of people efficiently and in an orderly manner. The boat trip itself is a very...More

Konigsee is a big tourist attraction, esp. the boat trip on the Konigsee. We decided not to take the boat trip, but instead did the Malerwinkl-Rundweg, a 2 hour circular, which gives some lovely views of the Konigsee, the surrounding mountains and away from the...More

The boat ride is slow as it is on electric boats that are designed to be a relaxing trip to drink in the surroundings. The short hike at the very end is oh so worth the cost and time. The internet does not do the...More

A beautiful boat cruise in the midst of the German Alps. Do not miss going to Obersee Lake, which is a small 15min walk from the 2nd stop of the cruise.

This should be on absolutely everyone's bucket list, so, so, so beautiful. I can not think of enough superlatives for this amazing place. Beauty wherever you look. We came from Salzburg, took the 840 bus directly to Berchtesgaden, then another short bus the 841 from...More

This is BAVARIA and the German/Austria Alps at their best. Absolute beauty will surround you on this deep lake cruise. The alpine lake is crystal clear and beautiful to glide across in these new / reconditioned wooden boats. We stopped at the Saint Bart Cathedral...More

You may be best to book a taxi, buses are very infrequent. I can't remember exactly but I think for us we had a 40min wait for the next bus so we ended up walking. If you are on a tight time line you might want to be... More
