Tips

  • Marvin🙃

    Good kick and sturdy shoes should already be available.
    (P.s: There is only one Obersee, that is, behind the Koenigssee)

    Adventurous path along the Obersee. Good sure-footedness and good footwear are required. Please don't take an example from some unteachable people who think they have to walk along with flip-flops. The tour is a bit exhausting, but it's worth it. Again and again there are great photo opportunities when the surrounding mountains are reflected in the Obersee.

    Narrow, rocky path. If you bend slightly you should wear hiking shoes. Otherwise easy to walk on, but lots of oncoming traffic

    You come across cows on the way. But beware! One or the other cow is not on a cuddle course!

    The path is not strenuous, but due to the unevenness, good sure-footedness and mobility are required

    The highest waterfall in Germany. A worthwhile hiking destination and a breathtaking sight in a wonderfully beautiful environment.

  • Marvin🙃

    With the general height of about 470m it is the highest waterfall in Germany.
    Unfortunately, you can not get from the bottom so well, but it is also not a typical waterfall as you expect it!

    With the stated 470m Germany's highest waterfalls.
    However, the actual height on site differs.

    Fantastic view of the Obersee and the Fischunkelalm in the background. Great point to take beautiful vacation photos

    Nice climb along the Obersee. Easy to walk with sensible footwear. Please don't take an example from the Asians or some reckless people and walk here with flip-flops. Risk of injury due to the uneven surface and the somewhat steeper sections of the path. Unfortunately, the climb is also quite a bottleneck. Especially on nice days it gets very crowded and the oncoming traffic is accordingly strong. But there are always places to let the crowds go by.

    Fantastically beautiful. Especially in good weather when the surrounding mountains are reflected in the lake. A beautiful piece of nature. Unfortunately, it can get crowded here if the weather is good. It's best to take one of the first boats to the Salet stop before the crowds flock here in the morning.

    Easier way that is feasible for almost everyone. Only after the Fischunkenalm is it a little exposed.
