It was a wonderful, easy, peaceful outing surrounded by amazing mountains and greenery, I spent 3 hours just walking around the woods, looking at the lake and just drink in the serenity of this place. Simply beautiful!

Worth to step out from the ferry on the ride to the other side of Köningsee. Although nothing special to do except visiting the church and having a snack or drink in the cafes beside.

We saw St.Bartholomew´s Church on the boat trip by Lake Koenigs See. It was a nice experience, also a shorter walk through the woods around the church.

I‘ve been living in Bavaria for years but I hadn‘t known this fantastic lake. One day, my friends from Malaysia asked me whether I had visited this wonderfully lake before but I had no idea what he meant. When I was back in Germany again,...More

The main reason I went to Konigsee was the hiking so St. Bartholomew's Church was more of a passing sight than a main visit. It is cool to see as you approach in the boat, but there is not much to see inside of it...More

We understand that the winter is over and spring hasn't begun but the service and enthusiasm was pretty poor up here. One you are in the boats you are a captive market. I'd suggest bringing your own lunch and drinks.

Surrounded by snow capped mountains and frozen water when I was there, it's pretty. White snow on the ground, it's very picturesque and cold.

Well this is quite a surprising church... You're on a Ferry on Konigssee, on your way to the other side of this beautiful lake for a walk along the banks of the Obersee and farther to a fall... And suddenly you see far on the...More

The church is an iconic landmark for the boat trip. It looks more photo generic when you are still in the boat with mountain and trees!

If you visit Königssee, do also visit St. Bartholomä church. If you don't like a long walk, you can only reach it by boat. Don't mind the price. The trip gives you views of the lake you would otherwise never get.
