When it comes to visiting the Röthbachfall, you are in for an exciting and adventurous trip into the German outdoors. The first leg of your trip occurs aboard an electric powered boat that will take you from one side of Königssee Lake, to the other. It is here at Salet where you will get off the boat and begin your hike up to the mountainous Lake Obersee.

Luckily, the path leading up to the lake and the Röthbachfall are well-worn and easy to traverse.
