The Obersee is the little brother of the Königsee, separated by a moraine wall since a landslide in 1172.
If you want to hike here, first make a nice boat trip over the Königssee, past the fjord-like steeply rising rock walls on the lake shore. On one side of the Obersee, the Fischunkelalm invites you to rest, at the same time a popular starting point for mountain tours in the Steinerne Meer.

Beautiful lake above the Königssee. Behind the Obersee lies Germany's highest waterfall.
In two main stages the Röthbachfall in the south of the upper lake overcomes the so-called Röthwand, which separates the cauldron of the Königssee and the Obersees from the Röth, the plateau between Steinernem sea and Hagengebirge. You can reach the Röthbachfall over the Fischunkelalm on the Obersee. Of course you have to go by boat over the Königssee to the Saletalm, and then make your way to the Obersee. This small, approximately 3-kilometer hike leads impressively along the banks of the Obersee along steep cliffs to the Fischunkelalm. Behind the alpine area there is a small wooded area, which still has to be crossed, then you can see the water of the Röthbach impressive fall into the valley.
