Lake Königssee - Berchtesgaden - Germany - European Tourist Guide - euro-t-guide.com
The Lake
Königssee is an extremely beautiful and quiet mountain lake just a few kilometres outside Berchtesgaden. The lake is shaped much like a fjord - as it is totally surrounded by steeply rising flanks of mountains up to 2700 meters high - incl. the Watzmann massif in the west. Most of the lake is located within the  Berchtesgaden National Park - and it is Germany's third deepest lake.
