Koenigsee boat trip

by Annie29

Is it possible to arrange a tour from Salzburg, to go on the boat tour on lake Koenigsee to St Bartholoma ?

Re: Koenigsee boat trip

by Kakapo2

There are trains and buses running from Salzburg to Berchtesgaden (the trip takes between 45 and about 70 mins), and from there you can take the bus to Schönau on Königssee (10 mins), and there the boat tour starts.

You don't need to arrange anything. There are scheduled services

Travel Tips for Berchtesgaden

Koenigsee, more than you think

by iandsmith

Like any good jewel, there are many facets to Koenigsee.
One of those is the deer feeding station. This is maintained by the national parks because man has usurped much of the deer's natural feeding area so a station at Reitl (shown here) and one at St. Bartholomew's are stocked to keep the herd viable.
As one would expect in a mountainous area with water, there are waterfalls. The most obvious one is Koenigsbachfall which is located on the southern side of the lake and starts at around 1,600 metres.
At Kessel (pic 3) there is a small wharf that is active in summer as hikers alight to ascend to Gotzenalm, a mountain meadow with one of the best views over the lake. A DEADLY PLACE:
There are two things I was told when I was younger - "Never turn your back on the surf or the mountains". This sage advice I never forgot and perhaps it would have aided some of those who have ventured here in the past.
There's a red cross (right hand side, base of cliff) that marks the spot where 70 pilgrims drowned in 1688 when their boat shattered on the rocks of Falkensteiner Wand in a storm; then, while you're gazing at the splendour of the soaring striated cliffs of Watzmann Ostwand, you might also reflect that, since the mountain was first climbed in 1881, over 90 people have perished here.

BRING A PHRASE BOOK!

by Duffelgirl

Most people we met spoke a few words of English - especially younger folk. Having said that we did have difficulty being understood by our Bed and Breakfast hostess, I think most of her guests could communicate in German - my broken German severly lacked sophistication. I just smiled and looked foolish and ignorant most of the time. I WILL BE FLUENT IN GERMAN ONE DAY'!

Eiskapelle (Ice Chapel)

by alancollins

The Ice Chapel is about 6km from St Bartholoma. You follow the trail from the National Park Information Hut to Kapelle St Johann und Paul. Having gone past the Chapel you continue uphill through the woods until you reach the large avalanche snow field at the foot of the Watzmann's east wall. The ice chapel changes from year to year in shape and size. I got there about 11.30 hours and for 30 minutes I had the entire place to myself. Strong shoes or boots are needed. You have to return the same route and then try some fish for lunch back at St Bartholoma

a nice place for your children

by globetrott

This is a small place just about halfway from the large parking in Schoenau am Koenigsee and Jennerbahn and it might be a good place to pass by with your children. Its nice to see these goats, some of them have a bell around their neck, they will climb up the top of the small huts, that are covered the old traditional bavarian way with wooden tiles and stones on top to hold them.
For the larger children there is a go-cart-track and mini-golf just next to it.

Salzbergwerk (Salt Mines)

by ThereGoesMyLife

In operations since 1717, the mines were the original source of wealth for the priory, and are still active use today. You can take a ride back into the mines 1-1 1/2 miles for a fantastic tour of the mining of salt. First you will put on the traditional mining clothing, (don't forget your leather rear cover) as you will find out the seat of your pants might get a little warm as you slide down wooden rail(s) as you explore deeper into the mine. Then you are loded onto a motorized cart to take you into the bowels of the earth. Of course as you are getting on to the carts it "A Kodak Moment Time" as each cart is photograph for the end of tour souvionior (12 Euros for 4 picture; over pictures are taken as you slide down the woodend rails). You will also get a chance to watch a movie on how salt is mine; which was quite interesting (language in English, Spanish, Germany, French and Italian) and a boat ride across a small underground lake. It well with your time....the whole tour take around 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Open May to mid-Oct, daily 9-5; rest of year, daily except Sun. and holidays, 12:30-3:30. Cost for Adults is 12 Euros
