Exploring the shores of Lake Königsee

Many hiking tours take you along the Königssee in winter and offer you picturesque views. A good choice in this context is the „winter hike along the picturesque Königssee“. This is one of the easy hikes with a length of only 4 kilometres. On this tour you will be on the move for around 1.5 hours and climb over 200 metres of altitude to the highest point at 731 metres above sea level.
