We drove around a bit and ended up at Konigsee which is the highest lake in Germany. We took a cruise to St Bartholoma which is about halfway up the lake and close to the foot of Watzman Mountain - really something to behold.
We were going to visit the Eagles Nest while we were here, but the whole things is a bit of a circus. There were at least 20 buses that had emptied tourists into the staging area where another set of buses take you to the Eagles Nest. Additionally, there were around 150-200 people waiting for a bus at the staging area. So, we decided that it really wasn't for us, though it would have been nice to see. We could see the Eagles Nest from Konigsee and it was a LONG way up and the view would have been spectacular.
