You can hear how Königsee is also called Bartolomsee, which means Lake St. Bartholomew, since it really holds an old church with domes, which can only be tasted by walking on the water.

Not far from it, you can also see the ice chapel, which does not melt even in the summer and the castle where the Bavarian kings were going to hunt.

Due to the fact that the lake is located among the huge steep cliffs, it has an amazing acoustics: if you shout hard, you can hear the pure echo more than once. Walking through the water surface on a local boat, the guide usually demonstrates this phenomenon by playing on the pipe, some kind of melody.
