We drove from Munich southeast to the little mountain town of Berchtesgaden, Germany. It was beautiful! From there we drove a few more miles to the King’s Lake (Konigss)ee in German.
We and about 30 other people took an electric powered boat across the lake to a stop at the church of Saint Bartholomew. The snow capped mountain behind the church is called Watzmann. It is the 3rd tallest peak in Germany (2700 meters – 8900 feet).
Before we got to the church however, the boat stopped, shut off its motor, the boat pilot pulled out a trumpet, played a slow, deliberate tune, and demonstrated the amazing echo. The melodious song coupled with the echo were incredible to hear.
Another note: The building at the top of the mountain is the Eagle’s Nest (Hitler’s hideout, retreat and place to entertain dignitaries).
In a future blogpost I will attach a copy of the video I took of that. Plus in a following post I will show photos of another lake near Konigsee, called Obersee (Upper Lake). Enjoy these shots!
