Königssee and salt mine

Picturesque scenery and impressive journey underground

In the southeast of Bavaria, in the heart of the alpine national park in Berchtesgaden at the foot of the Watzmann, is the Königssee. During the noiseless journey by an electric boat to the idyllic island of St. Bartholomä, you do not only hear the impressive echo, but also learn about the mountain lake itself. The stay offers time to walk and enjoy the special landscape.

Only about 20 minutes away is the salt mine Berchtesgaden, which is in operation since 1517. In stylish protective clothing begins the exciting tour (about 90 minutes) through the saline mountain with the entrance to the mine train. Further highlights are the miners' slides, a raft trip over the underground Spiegelsee and the Salzkathedrale. Please note that the temperature is below 12 ° C throughout the year. Sturdy footwear is required.
