The boat ride is amazing. The water is so clean and clear and blue. I had a wonderful time with my family when I went.

We didn't much during our visit in June so we were pretty impressed by the panoramic lovely view of Konigsee, St. Bartholomew's church at the lakeshore and surrounding alps. The electric boat has very limited view and what makes the the boat trip a bit...More

If you'd like to walk around a lake, please choose a different lake such as Fuschlsee. The walk to Mahlerwinkl view point from the boat station gives a view up the length of the lake, very suitable for those without the time... More
