Really nice photo! I’ve often been there because I’ve been to a hospital in Berchtesgaden for some weeks.
If you take a boat trip, you will experience the “Echowand”: The lake’s position surrounded by sheer rock walls creates an echo, which is known for its clarity. On boat tours, it has become traditional to stop and play a flugelhorn or trumpet to demonstrate the echo. Formerly demonstrated by shooting a canon, it can be heard to reverberate up to seven times. The trumpeter plays along with the returning sounds so it sounds like as many as 7 multiple players. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6nigssee)
