Day 5 - Oberau/Berchtesgaden/Königssee

We slept in a little, grabbed breakfast at the hotel, then headed for Königssee to ride the boat.  Traffic was really heavy so it took a while:

The weather was beautiful (again!), though it was quite cold so we had to really bundle the kids.  We stopped along the way to take a few pictures:

When we finally got to Schönau (at the head of the lake) we were pretty hungry so we got some bratwurst and warm kinder punch.

The ride on the lake was spectacular.  It's a secluded lake, aparently the cleanest in all of Germany.  The kids had a great time looking at the mountains.

It was dark when we got back to Schönau and most of the shops were closed.  One, however, was still open and it was selling sleds.  We bought a few and then tested them on a little hill.

For dinner we decided to head back to Berchtesgarden.  We found a really nice restaurant and had a wonderful meal.

Back at our hotel we had a fun movie night.  I also had a chance to take some long exposure shots of the breath-taking stars.
