Tips

  • Ralf

    The path from the Saletalm to the Fischunkelalm leads along the banks of the Obersee, in places the path is narrow and steep. On the rock face on the shore of the Obersee, the trail is also secured by a railing (ropes).
    The Obersee
    Separated from the Königssee by a moraine wall since a landslide in 1172, the Obersee is the little brother of the Königssee. From the Fischunkelalm the ascent to the Röth or to the Wasseralm is possible; It is therefore a popular starting point for mountain tours in the Steinerne Meer.
     Fischunkelalm & Röthbachfall
    The Fischunkelalm is a managed alpine hut on the southeastern shore of the Obersee. Above the Fischunkelalm is the Röthbachfall, the highest waterfall in Germany. In the summer months the pasture is cultivated and a popular rest stop.
