From Lake Königssee to Lake Chiemsee
The Chiemgauer Alps occupy the border region between Salzburg, Tyrol and Bavaria. An area of soft mountains, spacious alpine pastures and well known holiday resorts. The views onto intimidating High Alps and across the lovely foothills of the Alps also contribute to this varied walking week. See pretty places on your way as e.g. idyllic Lake Koenigssee, picturesque mountain town Reit im Winkl and finally Lake Chiemsee, so called “Bavarian Sea”.
A spectacular alpine experience, the Königsee area of Germany is among the finest in the country. The Königssee is a glacier lake formed by the last ice age and located in the extreme southeast of the German State of Bavaria (Bayern), near the German-Austrian Border.
