    This lake is one of the most beautiful in the Alps.It's cut into the rocks, hardly any bank around it for walking. Electric boats take people on tours on the lake. The boats are between 11 and 14 Euro for the round trip. Most people get off at the St Bartholomae church, which must be one of the most often photographed churches in Bavaria.
    Those who stay on the boat to get off in Salet, the stop at the end of the Koenigssee, are rewarded with a nice walk to the Obersee.

    Beautiful Koenigssee St nartholomae

    We love hiking and there are many trails in the National Park. A very nice hike we made was through the Wimbachklamm up to the Wimbachhuette. "Klamm" is a sort of canyon and the waters of the Wimbach rush through it. Going through the Klamm is the first part of a very nice hike. It's steep, but the trail is wide and it's not dangerous. The Klamm is open from May on, depending on the weather, entrance is 1 Euro.
    The mountain huts, serving some food and beverages, as well as the National Park information, are also supposedly open from May on, but we found out that you cannot rely on this. Some places were open, others were still closed.
    The hike was beautiful, great scenery when you walk towards the mountains. And , if you've read my intro to this page, you know what else there is to see (and touch).
    We drove to the parking lot, but you can also take the bus, as the bus stop is near the parking lot for the Wimbachklamm.

    Isn't it beautiful there? The Wimbachklamm

    The canyon is about 3 kilometres [1½ miles]
    long and mostly slippery and wet. It takes
    about 1½ to 2 hours to cross the canyon
    one way, so take plenty of time, especially
    in holidays is the canyon crowded with
    tourists.

    There are public buses in the National Park, taking you to the parking lots near the trail heads. While in cities I usually prefer public transport to cars, in the National Park a car is better in my opinion. It's so much more convenient, not just before a hike, but afterwards. When you're hot and tired it's so much nicer to simply get into a car instead of having to wait for the next bus.
