Chiemsee is the second-largest Bavarian lake and is famous for its natural beauty and wildlife. It was designated as a nature conservation area back in 1923. It is around 50 metres deep and offers an incomparable panoramic view.



The Königssee lake is part of the Berchtesgaden Alps. The name "Königssee" refers to the fairy-tale king Ludwig II from Bavaria who built the subsequent Neuschwanstein Castle near to the lake in 1869, where he died in 1886.



The Kampenwand is a wonderful place for a day trip. Situated near to Aschau, it has a funicular railway that carries passengers throughout the year. There are also a number of opportunities for walking, climbing and mountain biking.
