We went for a little wander this weekend at Lake Königssee, in Germany but near Salzburg, Austria. The lake is deep, cold and crystal clear and we were lucky enough to see the Almabtrieb, where they bring the mountain cows across the lake to their valley pastures, adorned with fancy headdresses. After a boat ride across the lake, we hiked to the Obersee, there the boathouses and still, reflective lake made for the perfect autumn photos (and the schnapps from the mountain Alm warmed us just enough for the hike back). We’re already planning our next trip back here as it’s only 2 hours from home!
