Lake
King's Lake is a very deep lake in Germany, located just a few kilometers south of the small Bavarian town of Berchtesgaden on the German-Austrian border. The lake is long and thin, surrounded by mountains in a gorgeous scene reminiscent of the fjords of Northern Europe. Known for its emerald-colored waters, King's Lake is considered one of the cleanest, most beautiful lakes in Germany.

Trip Moments

Shanghu has not been open to tourists so far, and all tourists who come to the lake to hike need to take a boat after the end of the trip. Therefore, it is more like the paradise of Tao Yuanming's pen. On both sides of the hillside, there are cattle and sheep concentrating on grazing, and the scenery here is not as good as the fireworks. The landforms of Shanghu Lake are quite a bit strange. There are rock formations on the grass, and sawn wood that is rotten and collapsed lying on the side of the road, like an alien planet with grass. The fairy-tale cottages on the hillside are soaking, everything seems so unreal. Our Shanghu Lake is no different from other people's travel notes. Others travel in the blue and clear lake, while our upper lake is a kind of deep green, and the clouds like the broken cotton floes float in the mountains. . Without the color of publicity, the lake in front of the lake is more like a freehand landscape painting, faint, but there is a direct attack on the bottom of the heart. The lake is surrounded by mountains on three sides, so there is basically no wind. The mirror-like lake reflects the clear reflection of the mountains and the sky. This is the clearest reflection I have ever seen in my life. I wanted to use the 30S and 1/60 shutters respectively, but the naked eye did not see any difference. Time seems to be condensed, and everything is a dream. The cabin should be the postcard angle of Shanghu. Many people came to the lake and didn't have time to hike. Then they came here to look at the opposite side and took a few photos to leave. Therefore, this cabin is much more expensive than the "milk lodge" across the lake. It is estimated that it will take another 45 minutes to walk to the opposite side of the milk lodge and walk to the waterfall for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The route of hiking is covered by towering trees, the road is muddy and slippery, and you must always pay attention to your feet. There is also a section of the worst road to the whole journey. You need to climb the mountainside and climb down. When it rains, the difficulty index doubles. It is necessary to pull the steel cable next to it so as not to slip. It is such a road condition. We take a picture while walking, and the time to go to the other side is twice as long as the official estimate. After all the hardships, we finally came to the end of the hike, the cabin that was previously photographed is already opposite the lake. Perhaps only after such a test of physical and mental, can we see a more unusual scenery. There will always be such a large and small ceremonial feeling during the journey. Only after experiencing it will you know that all efforts will not be wasted. The clouds dissipated most of the time, and finally saw the Hagen Mountains that were still half-covered. We finally saw what a real lake is. Light. mountain. color. No matter how many times you see the scenery in front of you, you still feel the heart and soul, the rare peace and beauty in the world, I hope that you will always look like this moment. [TIPS on the lake] 1) There are two toilets on the lake, one is just behind the row of wooden houses when you are on the salet pier. There is also the back of the cottage drinking milk 2) If you want to hike, girls must not wear leather shoes, or it will be very embarrassing. Sneakers and hiking shoes are the first choice 3) Pay attention to the time of leaving the last boat of the same day. If you miss it, you can only set up camp at the lake.

The Magic Forest is located in the Ramsau area, between the Houhu and Marx canyons. It was formed between 3500 and 4000 years ago and covers an area of about 0.75 square kilometers. Nowadays, you can travel through the forest through hiking. The forest trails follow the tributaries of the Houhu Lake, and the streams are full of birds and flowers, which are suitable for walking. The enchanted forest was named after the 1920s and 1930s. Due to its landslide scenery, forests and streams, it created a romantic atmosphere. Later, it gradually developed into a famous tourist attraction, and there was a tourist introduction card that simulates a drawing board. There are many hiking routes in the magical forest. The most common and classic is to start from Houhu, then enter and cross the magical forest, follow the signs to the Ramsau Kirche stop and end at Ramsau's church. The self-driving partner can take bus 846 from the chapel to the back lake, and the lake is the terminal. After the lake, take the car and leave. The reason why the back lake is recommended as a starting point for hiking is that most people start from the Ramsau church because it can save energy by going downhill all the way. The whole journey takes about two hours. There is another route that we chose on the day. After entering the magical forest, we followed the rund um den hintersee signpost to the direction. Close to the lake, through a small part of the magic forest, around the lake and then to the starting point of the previous parking, the whole journey is expected to be 45 minutes to 1 hour. This is a compromise for us who travel to the chapel because of the inconvenience of rain, and want to experience the magic forest walk. The enchanted forest has the same magical power as its name. The towering old trees, the misty mist, the green moss, the meandering stream, except that we did not encounter a tourist all the way, always felt that the next second would meet the little red riding hat hiding deep in the woods. Germany's hiking routes are very mature, and every time you walk, there will be signs and display boards to tell you how long it will take you to complete the journey. The whole road is gentle and spacious, and compared with the hiking route on the lake yesterday, it can be considered a smooth road. The forest is like a big oxygen bar, people can't help but take a deep breath. If at home, such a scenery must be overcrowded, how can we still enjoy such tranquility and relaxation? So, come to Ramsau, don't miss it.
