Hello all mountain friends,

Lets make one of our best tour from Protected content don´t forget swin suite and a towel. The Obersee is a great spot to swim. About 30°C are expected:

KÖNIGSSEE in BERCHTESGADEN
RÖTHENBACH FALL (highest in Germany almost 500m!!!)
EISKAPELLE (unique icemonument in the alps)
NATIONALPARK BERCHTESGADEN (tour is completely in the National Park)

This lake is unique. He lies like a Fjord in the Alps the mountains seem to dive directly in the water.
There is no path around the lake!!!!
So we have to take a boat to cross and get an demonstration of the echo between the rocks by the captain. The water is so clear that it is drinking water quality.

Have a look to our event in Protected content

We have to go by car. Train trip takes almost 4h one way!!!!
I am not keen to spend 8h on an sunny day in trains and busses.

As organiser i like to offer four spots. Other drivers are welcome.
If you can drive let me know how many spots you like to offer. Many thanks in advance!
Saturday I will update you all.

Tour:
We go by car at 8:00 to Schönau am Königssee to the parking close to the lake arrival 10:00.
Here you can join us too.
We take the first boat we catch and cross all the lake to Saletalm. From the boat we have first wunderful impressions of this awesome place.
I will make a reservation on Saturday when I know the number of attendees.

From Salet we walk up to the Obersee and the highest waterfall in Germany the almost 500m high Röthenbach Fall.
At Fischunkelalm (food and drinks served) next to Obersee we make a rest and if you like jump into this unique "swimingpool" :-)

We go back by boat again and have a step over at St. Bartholomä. This is the well know church from every guide book. The best view you get only from the boat.

We make an easy hike to the Eiskapelle this is a unique wonder of nature

what takes maybe 2h with relaxed walking. Than we take the boat back to the starting point and have some time for a walk along the lakeside and visit the bob run.

I suggest to have dinner together. A big table and delicous food is a great finish for a beautiful day.
Without pressure of train schedules we go back about 19:00 without traffic jam.

The meetingpoint is easy to reach by subway U1 and with car you can stop in front of the station for a moment.

- Shared costs for transportation
