One of the prettiest views in the world on a clear day. Way high up in German Alps, WWII history, fabulous place with spectacular views. A must visit landmark in Bavaria, Germany. On the expensive side but well worth it.

Hi. You would need to call for a taxi from the bus depot at the bottom of the mountain to take you to konigsee. We were driving so it wasnt a problem. But they can be done on the same day as we did. We made the eagles nest... More
