A went on a few boat trips with the Bayerische Seenschifffahrt but the trip on the Lake Königssee is so different with the mountains around you and the silent electro boats, not to mention the trumpeter for the echo.

If you want visiting the Königssee or the obersee, you have to travel with this company. It’s a very good thing, all ships are equipped with an electric engine. The battery give the opportunity to drive the complete day without charging. Clean and silent, enjoy...

This is lovely boat trip via environmentally friendly electric boats, coupled with a beautiful haunting trumpet melody that’s enchantingly echoed by the mountains. Marred somewhat by the cap-in-hand request for tips, the trip is otherwise enjoyable and reveals some beautiful views apart from the musical...More

The lake is stunningly beautiful. The boat tour in silent e-boats very nice. BUT 1. The cost is high 18 eur 2. Midway the personnel will beg for more money with a hat after playing a trumpet for a minutes. This is an excellent demonstration...More

The boats of Koenigsee take you to all of the amazing spots on the lake. A round trip on the boat will take you a couple hours, so if you have plans to explore, be sure to plan a half to full day on this.

Having grown up next to lakes and boats, the boat as such wasn't so spectacular for me, though I understand the appeal for people with less experience on water. Still, the scenery from the boat was spectacular. Combine that with the stillness of the surroundings...More

What a lovely tour on the Koenigssee. When the weather is nice , its even mor exiting. They produce the echo on the famous wall and the boat is taking you to different locations alongside the Koenigssee. Most famous is St.Bartholomae. A really enjoyable tour...More

An unforgettable trip on the lake, the boats are well maintained and you get a great commentary as you proceed up the lake. I recommend to pre-book online as the queues can be quite long. Although it is a very popular tourist attraction, you still...More
