Konigssee the cleanest lake in Germany

Konigssee the cleanest lake in Germany. Beautiful natural lake Konigssee is considered the cleanest lake in Germany. Konigssee is located in the southeast Berchtesgadener Land district, Bavaria, near the border with Austria. Most of the lake is within the Berchtesgaden National Park. The Konigssee is surrounded by rock walls, high mountains, such as Watzmann massif in the west. Mountain surrounding the lake creates an unusual clear echo, e.g. a trumpeter plays along with the returning sounds so it sounds like as many as 7 multiple players. The effect attracts tourists, who come here on boats. It has become a tradition to play a flugelhorn or trumpet to demonstrate the echo. To save the cleanness of the lake, only electric-motor-powered ships, pedal boats, and rowing have been permitted since 1909.

At first, only a small part of the animated GIF-image, but the technology is improving, and photographers working in engineering of cinemagraphy improve the quality of it.
