About this picture

Schönau am Königssee (officially Schönau a. Königssee ) is a municipality in the Upper Bavarian district of Berchtesgadener Land . The municipality area includes the fjord-like, up to 190 m deep Königssee with the church of St. Bartholomä .


Geographical location

The place belongs to the administrative region of Upper Bavaria and is part of the high alpine region of Berchtesgadener Land in the south of the Berchtesgadener Land district . Together with the neighboring communities of Berchtesgaden , Bischofswiesen , Marktschellenberg and Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden , the place lies within the geomorphological unit of the Berchtesgaden valley basin and is almost completely surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps , whose mountain ranges in turn extend to the east, south and south-west into the Austrian state of Salzburg .

The place is the south-easternmost municipality in Germany, which is bordered in the west by the valley of the Ramsau and in the north by the market Berchtesgaden. In the east and south, the mountain ranges of the Hohen Göll , Hagengebirge and Steinernen Meer form the common border to the neighboring Salzburger Land .

The Königsseer Ache , which is regulated by a weir, flows from the northern bank of the Königssees towards Berchtesgaden . In Berchtesgaden this joins the Ramsauer Ache in front of the Berchtesgaden main train station and is called Berchtesgadener Ache from there .

Community structure

The municipalities of Schönau and Königssee were merged in 1978 as part of the regional reform in Bavaria from 1971 to 1980 to form the municipality of “Schönau am Königssee”. The community consists of a total of seven districts , namely six Gnotships and the wasteland of St. Bartholomä.

The alpine huts that are only managed in summer, such as the Saletalm on the south bank of the Königssees and Fischunkelalm on the Obersee , do not count as districts, nor do the game feeding (former hunting stand) in the Reitl opposite St. Bartholomä and the boat dock Kessel on the east bank of the Königssees.

Original message from the monastery of Berchtesgaden

Panorama over the Schönau plateau with the mountains of the Berchtesgaden Alps

In the course of the Landbrief issued by Provost Ulrich Wulp in 1377 , Schönau became one with the eight "Gnotschaftsbezirken" (unnamed until 1817), Faselsberg, Königssee, Hinterschönau, Oberschönau I, Oberschönau II, Schwöb, Unterschönau I and Unterschönau II, presumably as early as the end of the 14th century of the eight "original messages " of the Berchtesgadener Land . From 1155 onwards, the area of ​​the Berchtesgadener Land corresponded to the heartland of the Berchtesgaden monastery , which in 1380 had been elevated to the status of the Imperial Prelature of Berchtesgaden and in 1559 to the imperial provost of Berchtesgaden . Schönau is first mentioned in writing as a Gnotschaft, the area of ​​which roughly encompassed that of today's municipality of Schönau am Königssee , in the first tax book of the Berchtesgadener Land from 1456.

Secularization, connection to Bavaria

After the secularization of 1803, the Berchtesgadener Land lost its political independence as a prince provost , which was followed by three changes of rule in quick succession. From 1803 the newly founded Electorate of Salzburg was ruler of the "Land Berchtesgaden", after the Peace of Pressburg in 1805 the Empire of Austria and in 1809 for a short time Napoleon's France . In 1810 the Berchtesgadener Land was finally annexed to the Kingdom of Bavaria and Schönau was divided into the communities of Schönau and Königssee . With the reorganization of Europe, the two municipalities, like all the other Gnotships in the Berchtesgadener Land, were under the direct jurisdiction of the Berchtesgaden Regional Court from 1810 first into the Salzach District and from 1817 into the Isar District of the Kingdom of Bavaria, which has been called Upper Bavaria since 1838 . In 1868, the administrative district of Upper Bavaria was subdivided and the place was incorporated into the Berchtesgaden district office . The previous Gnotschaft districts of the "Original Gnotschaft" have been referred to as "Gnotschaften" since then.

From 1909 to 1965, today's municipality was connected to the railway network by the Königsseebahn . All four stations of the route were in the municipality. The starting point was the Königsseer train station on the former Triftplatz opposite the Berchtesgaden main train station .

time of the nationalsocialism

The Berchtesgaden district office responsible for the communities of Schönau and Königssee was renamed the Berchtesgaden district in 1939 with the same area of ​​responsibility.

In 1944 the valuable works of art and paintings were brought from the Göring train parked at the Unterstein train station in Unterschönau to the Hubertus house, which Ludwig Ganghofer used as a template for his novel Hubertus Castle .

post war period

As part of the regional reform in Bavaria , the district of Berchtesgaden , to which the communities Schönau and Königssee belonged, was dissolved in favor of the new and expanded district of Bad Reichenhall on July 1, 1972 . The new district was given its final name on May 1, 1973, Berchtesgadener Land .

On May 1, 1978, the municipalities of Schönau (west of the Königsseer Ache ) and Königssee (east of the Königsseer Ache including the separate district of Forst St. Bartholomä) were merged to form the municipality of “Schönau am Königssee”.

On January 1, 1984, the large community-free areas of Forst Königssee (4574.69 of 4,883.88 hectares) and Forst St. Bartholomä (6,497.73 hectares) were incorporated in the south, consisting of the lake and its surroundings up to the Austrian border (a smaller Part of the Königssee forest with 309.19 hectares was incorporated into Berchtesgaden , Salzberg district ).

Geographical and socio-cultural assignments

Schönau am Königssee lies within the Berchtesgadener Land region, which is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps . From 1155 almost congruent with the heartland of the monastery monastery Berchtesgaden, which became more and more independent over the centuries and was raised to the imperial provost of Berchtesgaden from 1559 to 1803 , this region is still today culturally and socio-culturally bordered by neighboring Chiemgau and within the same district Berchtesgaden from the former Duke of Bavaria Bad Reichenhall and the once the Archbishopric of Salzburg belonging Rupertiwinkel from. Thus, for Schönau am Königssee responsible municipal associations and regional authorities such as the former district of Berchtesgaden and the current district of Berchtesgadener Land as well as the associated municipalities go far beyond the socio-cultural conceptual unit "Berchtesgadener Land".

In relation to the Berchtesgadener Land region, the municipality u. a. The Oberherzogberg Christmas Rifle Society and the Königsseer Christmas Rifle Club are founding members of the United Christmas Riflemen of the Berchtesgadener Land, founded in 1925 .

Population development

Between 1988 and 2018, the municipality grew from 5,336 to 5,521 by 185 inhabitants or 3.5%.


According to the last census from 2011, 3,807 of the 5,349 inhabitants in Schönau am Königssee were Roman Catholic (a decrease of 6.9% compared to 1987) and 611 were Protestant (a decrease of 27.2% compared to 1987), the remaining religious affiliated 1005 inhabitants was not broken down. So far, in addition to “Roman Catholic” and “Evangelical Lutheran”, only the number of “foreigners” is given in the statistics of the census - here with 324 (an increase of 2.2% compared to 1987) of the 1005 inhabitants that are not specifically broken down . (→ see also the sections that restrict or criticize the information provided in this regard in the 2011 census : Household survey , questions on religion and scientific control .)

Since 2013 the pastor of the parish of Ramsau has also been the parish administrator of the Roman Catholic parish of Unterstein and Schönau am Königssee. With this parish administration, the 2020 structure plan of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising has already found a practical implementation with regard to a parish association of the parishes of Ramsau and Unterstein , which was taken the next step in 2016 with the establishment of the Ramsau Unterstein Parish Association .

Along with Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden, Schönau am Königssee belongs to the 2nd  district of the Evangelical Lutheran parish of Berchtesgaden. The place of assembly of the Protestant Christians in Schönau am Königssee is the Hubertus Chapel .

The right lily with a carving tool refers to the woodworking within the community, the left lily with a maple leaf to the nature reserve (national park) Königssee.

Culture and sights

natural beauties

The Königssee is an elongated mountain lake and lies at the eastern foot of the Watzmann and is mainly fed by the Saletbach coming from the Obersee to the southeast . Since the Königssee is embedded between steep mountain slopes, it is described as fjord-like ; In terms of water quality, it is also one of the cleanest lakes in Germany. Most of the lake is in the Berchtesgaden National Park .

Visual arts

The view of the Königsee from the Malerwinkel was and is very popular and has shaped the classic image of the lake in a special way. This perspective has been an incentive for visual artists to choose their image motifs since the beginning of the 19th century at the latest , which in turn, alongside other image motifs in the region, also provided an initial “advertisement” for the tourism that had been developing there since the end of the 19th century . With the advent of photography, locals and tourists alike have used this perspective for countless photos of their own.

After Ramsau bei Berchtesgaden (2012, 2014) and Berchtesgaden (2013), the “ IV. Open ExTempore for Visual Art in Berchtesgadener Land ” took place from June 18 to 21, 2015 in Schönau am Königssee. With the participation of more than 90 adults from five nations as well as numerous children and young people from the region, the extempore work created on site was then exhibited in the community and spa administration Schönau am Königssee and awarded there.
