Ever since I passed it on my way to Austria in spring of last year, lake Königsee has been on my radar, and for good reason. Situated among the majestic Bavarian Alps it’s an incredibly beautiful lake that offers a lot when it comes to landscape photography. In fact, the whole surrounding area known as Berchtesgaden National Park is quite fabulous. Sadly, I didn’t have the opportunity to visit it back then, so I made a mental note about it and moved on. In the year that followed, images of Königsee and its sister lake Obersee kept periodically appearing in my Instagram feed and in some of the Youtube channels that I watch, until I finally gave in. It was time to see it with my own eyes.
