A short bus journey from Salzburg you’ll find a beautiful small town by a lake in Bavaria, Germany.
Nestled at the foot of the mountains Lake Konigssee is located right by Berchtesgaden and mostly within its national park.
I made a quick stop here during my visit to The Eagles Nest. You can read all about my day here.
I didn’t spend very long here but I had enough time to walk around and admire the beauty of this little place.
You’ll find lots of gift shops, restaurants, cafes and clothes stores. A very quaint little town beautifully lined with flowers.
Also known as the Kings Lake this is the most prominent reason for visiting here. I hear there are several hikes you can do round here including one that involves a waterfall.
I also had a few people recommend taking a boat across the lake for the day. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time for this but I bet it makes for a great day trip.
If you are going to be in Berchtesgaden to visit Eagles Nest then I recommend you pop on the 10 minute bus journey to pay a visit to the lake even if you only spend an hour here like I did it’s very pretty. You can even see the Eagles Nest perched on its mountain from here.
