Overview
More
Lying in majesterial aura and aloofness, surrounded by towering rock faces, the emerald Königssee resembles a fjord set in the Bavarian alps. A sightseeing trip is an unique experience at any time of the year: in spring, mighty waterfalls thunder down over the steep rocks into the lake. Summer brings a rich, green contrast to the barren rock. Autumn paints a colourful tone poem of incomparable splendour. And if ice conditions allow, winter presents an unforgettable landscape.

This is lovely boat trip via environmentally friendly electric boats, coupled with a beautiful haunting trumpet melody that’s enchantingly echoed by the mountains. Marred somewhat by the cap-in-hand request for tips, the trip is otherwise enjoyable and reveals some beautiful views apart from the musical...More

The lake is stunningly beautiful. The boat tour in silent e-boats very nice. BUT 1. The cost is high 18 eur 2. Midway the personnel will beg for more money with a hat after playing a trumpet for a minutes. This is an excellent demonstration...More

The boats of Koenigsee take you to all of the amazing spots on the lake. A round trip on the boat will take you a couple hours, so if you have plans to explore, be sure to plan a half to full day on this.

Having grown up next to lakes and boats, the boat as such wasn't so spectacular for me, though I understand the appeal for people with less experience on water. Still, the scenery from the boat was spectacular. Combine that with the stillness of the surroundings...More

What a lovely tour on the Koenigssee. When the weather is nice , its even mor exiting. They produce the echo on the famous wall and the boat is taking you to different locations alongside the Koenigssee. Most famous is St.Bartholomae. A really enjoyable tour...More

An unforgettable trip on the lake, the boats are well maintained and you get a great commentary as you proceed up the lake. I recommend to pre-book online as the queues can be quite long. Although it is a very popular tourist attraction, you still...More

It's a beautiful place to visit. We took the boat to the very end. We walked 15 minutes to a smaller lake.
