Today we went to Germany to visit the famous Königsee, at the same time, we also went to the Obersee for hiking.
I already had heard that Königsee was very beautiful long time ago. However, my honey told me that it was not so special, but I did not believe, and now, i had to say that he was right!
After visiting the Königsee, to be honest, I really felt a little disappointed. It is really not so special as what I imagined at all. Comparing with the Wolfgangsee (Austria), Königsee is too plain and bored, because most of time we have to stay in the boat for sightseeing, and only one view point ( the red roof church) can be visited without staying in the boat.
In Austria, there are lots of beautiful lakes, but in Germany, much less than Austria, no wonder the Königsee is so popular in Germany. Besides, another reason why it is so popular, is that the second highest mountain in Germany (Watzmann) can be seen from the Königsee. But whatever, I still think that if people visit Austrian lakes first, then maybe will not think Königsee is the most beautiful one.
Well, different people has different taste, I admit that there are still many people like Königsee, it still has its own value for appreciating, but unfortunately, not my honey and me! Although I felt disappointed for the Königsee, I still took some pictures there.
Today the weather was not so nice. At the beginning it was sunny, but at the afternoon, suddenly was raining and very cold, too bad!
At the entrance of the Königsee, there are many tour buses parking there, but all of them are from Germany, hehe, so obviously the Königsee is really very popular in Germany.
In the shopping area, there is a goat statue.
Haha, here also is selling Mozart chocolate!
My honey was buying the tickets for the boat.
After buying the tickets, we still had 40 minutes free, so we decided to do some simple sightseeing in the shopping area. This time, we baught a cute mouse toy, we gave it a name Nini, hehe!
It is the hotel in the shopping area, very old, seems like already has more than 100 years history.
Now we were in the boat already, still could see the buildings.
Because the boat was very small, there were not enough space for the visitors taking picutures outside, you could found the shadow of the glass window in these pictures, hehe!
He is a guide.
Now we entered a special area of Königsee, here could make some echo. This guide was playing a trumpet, to let all the visitors could hear the interesting echo of the music.
Because the guide was standing just in front of us, and his body was too big, we could not see the trumpet in his hands, hehe！
It is the symbol view point of the Königsee, a red roof church.
Because we had to go to the Obersee for hiking, the time was a little rushed, we would come back to visit the church later.
Now we continued taking the boat to the Obersee.
Except for the church, there is really nothing special to see in the Königsee.
" Hey, do not take picture for me!"
Now we arrived the Obersee.
After about half hour hiking, we found the Obersee. This lake is much more smaller than the Königsee.
In the Obersee, I think only the inverted reflection of the mountains look not so sad, the others really are too bored.
Today we took too many pictures for the scenery, so now we had to take some for us together.
A hut in the Obersee.
Some visitor were stopping there, and took a break.
After hiking in the Obersee, we took the boat again, and ruturned to the church in Königsee.
Now the weather started to get worse and worse.
Inside of the church, very simple, nothing special, and has strange smell.
Now it is autumn already!
After visiting the church, we took the boat back to our parking place. We were still lucky and did not get wet before we arrived our car.
Haha, she is Nini, a little cute mouse we baught in the Königsee. On the way home, I took some pictures for her.
" Look, I have a long tail!"
"Oh yeah, I will go to Austria!"
