KÖONIGSSEE  &  BECHTESGADEN

The beautiful lake of Königssee is a treat for any travel.  The first stop is Schönau am Königssee. This is the start of a day of visual gluttony. 

The village is also famous for being the hometown of Romy Schneider - one of the most famous German actresses.

   

 The boats take you first to Kirche St. Bartholomä [St Bartholomew's Church] and then to the end of the lake.  On the way you pass grottos, areas with granite walls on both sides that create amazing echoes [proven by the guide playing music], mountain tops called 'the sleeping witch' and some sad sights of women's torture.

The boat takes you to the end of the lake and from there you hike up and down millions of steps and get to the piece de resistance, the much smaller Obersee - the upper lake.

   

 

Nature's wonder!
