Leave Munich for a day trip to the region of Berchtesgaden, Germany with your local Gray Line guide. During the ride from Munich to your first stop at Königssee Lake, enjoy the some live commentary provided by your guide as we drive through south-east Germany.
Our first stop is the breathtaking, emerald-green Königssee Lake near the town of Berchtesgaden. Königssee Lake, which translates to King's Lake, is surrounded by steep walls of rock, with the 1800-meter (5,900 feet) high wall of the Watzmann Mountain, towering above its west shore. Around eight kilometers long and over a kilometer wide, the lake has a depth of up to 190 meters (620 feet) and occupies the whole valley between the Watzmann Mountain in the west and the Jenner and Gotzenberg mountains in the east. Enjoy a 35-minute boat ride across the peaceful lake to the island of St. Bartholomä, with a trumpet show along the way. The trumpets echo off of the lake and mountains, creating a unique and unforgettable sound. Enjoy 1.5 hours on the island, with some free time to explore on your own.
The second stop on our journey will be the oldest active salt mines in Germany, the Salzbergwerk Salt Mines. Before entering the 500-year-old salt mines, you'll change into some protective gear and be whisked underground to discover the secrets that this Bavarian jewel still holds today. Learn about this underground world and how this "white gold" has been an integral part of the German history.
