Highlights:

Surrounded by mountains, this narrow and beautiful lake is slender and slender, resembling a Nordic fjord. Königssee is famous for its turquoise and crystal-clear water, and it is considered the cleanest and most beautiful lake in Germany. The best time to travel to Kings Lake in summer is summer. The mountains on both sides of the lake are towering, full of green trees, and a paradise-like scenery. In winter, due to the weather conditions, many beautiful scenery cannot be seen, but if it encounters snow, it will also have a different flavor under the silver wrap. The best way to visit Kings Lake by boat is to take a cruise. Due to the strict protection of water quality, the boats operating here are all electric or hand-drawn. Starting from the Königssee Seelände pier, the Kings Lake cruise will make three stops, namely Kessel, St.Bartholomä and the end point of Salet. It is recommended to sit on the right side of the boat for the outgoing journey and the left side for the return journey, so that you can see a good view. Disembark at the second stop, St. Bartholomä, to visit the beautiful red-roofed church - St. Bartholomew Chapel. Disembark at the terminal and take a short walk to enjoy the Obersee and Röthbach waterfalls. From the top of Jena Peak overlooking King Lake, Jennerbahn (Jennerbahn) is located on the east side of King Lake. From the top, you can overlook the whole King Lake and have a panoramic view of Berchtesgaden Town and the lakes and mountains of the Alps in the distance. The Jena Peak Cable Car Station is not far from the entrance to the King Lake. You can easily climb to the top by cable car. You can also choose to descend halfway down the middle of the mountain and climb the mountain on foot.

The Eagle's Nest
The Eagle's Nest
4.4/5 · 74 review
taCommentInfo-imageBased on 3,009 review
Highlights:
The Eagle's Nest is a villa built for Hitler during the Nazi Germany period. It was built on the top of Obersalzberg in 1939. Hitler used it to entertain important guests, but he came here no more than 10 times, and most of his stay did not exceed 30 minutes. At the end of World War II, the Eagle's Nest was preserved despite being a bombing target. Today the villa has been converted into a restaurant, which overlooks Berchtesgaden and, in good weather, Königssee. However, it is not very easy to reach the Eagle's Nest. You need to take a special bus up the mountain, and there are many tourists queuing to buy tickets. If you have enough time and energy, you can also hike for 2-3 hours like the locals.
