KONIGSEE

SALZBURG cont.
A bus from Salzburg to Berchtesgaden and another to Konigsee and we were off to cruise to the end of this pretty lake.

The weather was beautiful, the lake was calm and the scenery magnificent.  

 St Bartholoma Abbey comes into view and the boat makes a brief stop


  
before heading off towards the end of the lake.


where the boat sweeps around and finally pulls into a small jetty.

 The next section of this journey is a walk.


First along the lake 

turning to set off through the gap in the mountains towards another lake,


crossing a tiny stream 


and through a pretty wooded area


and finally you come upon another lake, famous for its reflections.


Ah yes, this is what we came for !


Out come the cameras

  No matter which direction you look


Wonderful !





There's a path that winds round the edge of the lake

and Tony heads off clicking away


But suddenly across the lake a breeze begins to ripple the water


and as the ripples come closer and closer


the beautiful reflections disappear !





Weren't we lucky ?

Cheers.

  1. What happy memories this post brought back for me - it was on a holiday in Austria that I met Mr M and this was one of the places our group visited on a day such as the one you had!
