King's Lake is a very deep lake in Germany, located just a few kilometers south of the small Bavarian town of Berchtesgaden on the German-Austrian border. The lake is long and thin, surrounded by mountains in a gorgeous scene reminiscent of the fjords of Northern Europe. Known for its emerald-colored waters, King's Lake is considered one of the cleanest, most beautiful lakes in Germany.

Another part of German that is very different is Konigssee, this place is unique. It remind me a little bit of switzerland architecture but the air quality is exactly like switzerland. The water is clean, the city pretty quiet. Surrounded by the beautiful lake, paying a visit here should worth your time. #merrychristmas
The church of St. Bartholomew was built in 1134 and is the symbol of Kings Lake. Located on the Hirschau peninsula on the west bank of the middle of Kings Lake, it can only be reached by boat or long journey. This church church originated in the 12th century and has become a Baroque style since the 16th century. Small and chic, famous for its special shape, the red round dome is onion. The church was named after the disciple of St. Bartholomew, a protector of the Alpine farmers and milkman, who had his statue in the church. The Watzmann peak behind the church is the second highest in Germany with a height of 2,713 meters.
Compared to the non-human fireworks on the lake, the fireworks of the St. Bartholomew station made us feel very practical. After lunch, tease the wild ducks by the lake and enjoy the rare relaxation of the journey. In addition to churches and restaurants, St. Bartholomew has many routes for walking. If you just want to roast fish to go in a hurry, it is a pity that the scenery like a 5A national park. In the autumn, the king's lake has turned over the color palette like nature, and it has a thick fog. It is full of pure colors. Red maple leaves and turquoise lakes, the first time I feel red and green is so harmonious!
Afternoon turn completely, the value of the onion head church at this time has finally returned to normal level. Like the Ramsau Chapel, it also has no special features, but it wins the right position and can play a finishing touch in the picture. In the same way, there is the chapel in Hallstatt.
[Other tips from Kings Lake]
1) There are coupons behind the tickets for Kings Lake. We were 50% off McDonald's discount coupons. Don't waste if you need it.
2) There seems to be no public toilet in the St. Bartholomew station. We went to the restaurant.
3) The best location to shoot St. Bartholomew's church is still on board. With a little lake water, you can create the feeling of "the small chapel by the lake".

From the parking lot of Kings Lake, slowly walk from the parking lot to the lake, but in five minutes, you can slowly enjoy the town in five minutes, quiet and comfortable, just rained yesterday, and the King Lake cruise because of last night's The storm was blocked, and the lake would swim a few times from time to time, swimming quietly, and the lake was clear. It is a pity that this weather did not take a boat at Kings Lake. It is my regret to stay here.
