Königssee, a glacial lake located in Berchtesgaden, Germany is an incredibly beautiful tourist destination. Shaped like a fjord, it offers stunning views from multiple angles, from its lakeside properties to the picturesque Eagle's Nest atop the surrounding mountains. The lake itself is a stunning turquoise colour and is extremely tranquil, making for great kayaking, swimming and boating. Spectacular waterfalls add to the beauty of its steep cliffs, adjacent valley and nearby mountain. Although Königssee has a mild climate in summer, don't forget a coat or sweater for your autumn and winter visits! Be sure to take a boat ride through the crystal-clear waters of the lake, where you may even catch a glimpse of a storied inscription carved into the center of the lake. No matter the season, Königssee makes a beautiful day trip and is sure to leave you breathless!
