    The Malerwinkel is a popular vantage point on the north shore of the Königssee. The view from the Malerwinkel over the otherwise difficult to reach Königssee extends over the pilgrimage church of St. Bartolomä to the Schönfeldpitze in the Steinernen Meer.

    From the Königssee car park, a path leads past the picturesque boat sheds to the Berchtesgaden National Park. Past the Café Malerwinkel, the walk leads to the so-called Malerwinkel. This hike is also very popular as a winter walk, then the way to the Malerwinkel is cleared and scattered.

    Attention: Do not follow the narrow path that follows from the Malerwinkel along the banks of the Königssee. This is an old trail, which is now decayed and a great danger of falling!

    The walk to Malerwinkel often resembles a mass migration. If you are looking for peace and quietness, you should visit the Malerwinkel in the early morning or late at night, ideally outside the holiday season.
    A little more to the narrow path that leads from Malerwinkel further: Who is sure-footed, this can still go a few meters further to get to an idyllic bay. The warning signs should primarily prevent mass tourists and people in sandals or flip-flops from going further.
    The path ends at a ledge. However, this can be about large stones in the lake deal (good sense of balance). However, I can not say how far the old climb will take.

    The view of the Königssee from the Malerwinkel was and is very popular and has shaped the classical picture of the lake in a special way. With the advent of photography, both locals and tourists have used this perspective for countless own recordings.

    On a clear day, the visibility from the Malerwinkel can be up to ten kilometers to the south. The laterally towering, predominantly wooded mountain slopes are dominated by rock faces in the south. In the center of this stone sea one recognizes one of its highest mountain peaks, the characteristic elevation of the Schönfeldspitze (2653 m) already lying in Austria as well as the pilgrimage chapel St. Bartholomä at the foot of this natural scenery.

    The Malerwinkel landed in 2015 together with the other sights of the Königssee at number 12 of the TOP 100 sights in Germany.

    The Malerwinkel is a splendid vantage point from where you can also see the traditional ships crossing the lake and, with luck, hear the trumpets of the ship's drivers sound.

    Fantastic views of the Königssee, mystical pictures when the sun has not yet dissolved the fog. Also in winter only to be recommended and the vantage point of the Rabenwand is also a must. The path is a climb over roots and smooth stones, sturdy shoes are only recommended.

    The Malerwinkel is a popular vantage point on the north bank of the Königsee. The view from Malerwinkel over the otherwise difficult to access Königssee extends over the pilgrimage church of St. Bartholomä to the Schönfeldpitze in the Steinerne Meer. From the parking lot Königssee a path leads along the picturesque boat huts into the Berchtesgaden National Park. Past the Malerwinkel café, the walk leads to the so-called Malerwinkel. This hike is also very popular as a winter walk, then the path to the Malerwinkel is cleared and gritted. The captains of the electric boats of the Königssee fleet, or one of the companions, play with a flugelhorn during the journey across the lake to make the passengers happy Demonstrate echo. Due to the elevated location, you can also hear the echo of the Königssee from the Malerwinkel.

    The trail "Malerwinkel" is also highly recommended - the nice little round (about 7 km) from the jetty Königssee on the Malerwinkel with great views to the Jennerbahn valley station.
