The church itself is tiny but that shouldn't deter you from visiting. It's the journey to get to it that makes it worth it. The boat ride is made fun by the captain who explains (mostly in German) the history of the pilgrimage and the curiosities of the lake. The church is charming and when you place it in context,...

If you travel Europe a lot you've seen a lot of pretty churches. The church is cool, but there was nothing special about it that would make me say you shouldn't miss it.

This is a nice trip with the ferry from Schoenau am Koenigsee to the island where St. Bartholomae church is located. The views are picturesque.

This is a beautiful place reachable by an electric boat tour. The price and time investment are both worthwhile. The building is beautiful and the island and boat are dog friendly.

This was first stop with Königssee boat trip and it was very quiet and beautiful island. If you want to hike here you can find nice hiking trails around the island and up to the mountain. There was nice restaurant close to the docks where boat left us.

Beautiful place and church but crowded. If you are crunched on time go to the salet stop and see the waterfall and lake. We skipped staying here for a period of time and saw the other lake and glad we did because it was one of the highlights of our trip.

We stopped off at St. Bartholomae while on a board tour of Lake Konigssee. The lunch was average (service was very, very slow). The walk around after lunch was beautiful. Very nice forest and beautiful to walk around the late. Biggest downside was the line for the return. It was over an hour long. That being said, this is a... More

we took a small detour to visit that place and it was worth while going there. We only wish we had more time to explore the whole area which had so much to offer and visiting that small but lovely church was one of the highlights of our stay in that area. View of this church from the lake with... More

Church is small and pretty but very very touristy. The place is also quite damp. I wouldn't come here just for the church, but it's worth of visiting when you go at the area.

We visited Berchtesgaden and Konigssee and we also visited The ancient Church of St. Bartholomae. It is a small but verry beautiful church
