Königssee Private Walking and Boat Tour

In the last little southeastern corner of Germany, surrounded by an amphitheater of majestic mountains, is the King’s Lake, or Königsee. It sits at the heart of the Berchtesgaden Nationalpark, Germany’s only alpine national park and a recognized UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The 192 meters deep lake is therefore only navidated by electrical boats that have operated here for more than 100 years, thanks to Prince-Regent Luitpold of Bavaria, who was afraid the noise would scare away the deer he so liked to hunt here in the 19th century. We should forget that the almost vertical walls of the mountains here cause an echo that can be heard for over 7 times.
Let’s embark on a pure romantic journey over the Kings lake, to see the St. Bartholomä peninsula just behind the east wall of the Watzmann mountain and where the kings had their hunting lodge, to see the Röthbach waterfall the highest of it kind of Germany with it’s over 400 meters of height, and then to the Cul-de-sac border of Austria.
