My wife and I took the bus from Berchtesgaden (about 40 minutes) to Hintersee and walked around the lake.
The walk is easy, about 3km long, along a good path that is mostly level and follows the lake shore all the way around.There are public toilets at the Hintersee village end as well as a couple of guesthouses.
There is a large guesthouse overlooking the lake with outside tables and a large canopy about 150m beyond the final bus stop with a 'New York' cafe which we went into for hot drinks which were excellent. The food looked extremely good and I would recommend giving this place a go.
The scenery was spectacular. The lake is amazingly coloured with good views of various peaks around. The woods and surrounding alpine meadows make this a special place and worth 2 or 3 hours. We were very glad to have done this trip even in the heavy rain.
