Rocky crags, steep mountain valleys. The leaves on the trees flutter gently in the fresh mountain air. Dozens of cars are parked in the large public car park in the village of Schönau by Lake Königssee. From here on the journey has to be made on foot. People head for the pier for the departure of the Bavarian Lake Tours. Sunlight sparkles on the crystal-clear water. All is calm. Nature radiates a sense of total harmony. The next boat trip leaves in a few minutes. Soon it’s time for the passengers to board – and they set off across Lake Königssee and into the unique cultural landscape of this beautiful lake in Berchtesgaden National Park.
