Are you planning a trip to Munich or some other town in the southern parts of Germany or western parts of Austria? And you would like to spend a couple of days away from the city to see the Alps and some natural beauty?

For this purpose, I cannot recommend Berchtesgaden with a trip to Königssee and Obersee highly enough. Or for any other purpose really.

It has to be one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited.

Berchtesgaden is known for three sights in particular: The Eagle’s Nest, Berchtesgaden Salt Mines and the Königssee. During our trip we visited them all but what really blew me away was the trip to Königssee. And not even Königssee itself, but a walk from Königssee to a smaller lake called Obersee. And that’s what this article is about.
