Create an itinerary including St. Bartholomew's Church
Atop the Königssee lake with the imposing Watzmann massif as a backdrop, St. Bartholomew's Church can only be reached by ship or after a long hike across the surrounding mountains. The Baroque church, named after St. Bartholomew the Apostle, was built in 1697. The building features a red, domed roof and stuccowork by Salzburg artist Joseph Schmidt. An annual pilgrimage takes place here in late August. A nearby restaurant and beer garden operate in an old hunting lodge, providing views of the lake and mountains.

  • A must-have place to see. It looks great surrounded by mountains. There's enough space to rest, some restaurants and enough paths to walk. The church's interior itself might not look spectacular...

  • This is a must stop location on Koiningsee with great views. There is a resturant here for something to eat but would make a great picnic location

  • A must try boat trip, with amazing view. The boat ride is with a German guide, he will also provide you with a written guide in many languages. You can walk to beautiful spots once you are on the side of the church.
  • Roman Catholic pilgrimage church surrounded by mountains. View is worth the time spent! We visited this place through boat trip.
