This is an amazing spot to explore and take photographs. But please exercise caution especially during warmer months.

The ice chapel is on the foot of the Watzmann East-Wall. 

I recommend taking the first boat of the königsee because 1 or 2 hours later, the chapel will be filled with people, making it more difficult to take photos.

The hike, which starts at the St. Bartholomä boat station, takes roughly 30 min to get to the chapel.

Small tip: a bit away from the regular path is a second ice chepal wich has an beautiful waterfall in it and their are not so much people.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
