Our next stop was the National Park of Berchtesgaden and the postcard-pretty Konigsee lake.
Berchtesgaden (the village) is also worth a visit and is an excellent base for visiting the area. We were sorry not to have more time to spend here, but I'm sure we'll go back someday.
The village at night
The Konigsee is a deep glacial lake, very fjord-like and with impressive views all around. It's possible to take a boat trip all the way to the other side, but during winter you can only go half way, so we stopped at St. Bartholoma church and hiked the rest of the way down.
(and this is probably the last post of the year, so wishing you all the best for 2009 !)
