St. Bartholomew Church, lake citadel

Catholic church of St. Bartholomew was built on the western shore of Königsee lake in honour of apostle Bartholomew, saint patron of alpine shepherds and dairymaids. The first chapel appeared thanks to the provost (title in Christian church, in Catholicism – prior) of Berchtesgaden in 1134. In 1697 it was reconstructed in baroque after the Salzburg cathedral.

The church is easy to recognize thanks to its red domes. Inside you can see mouldings of Salzburg artist Josef Schmidt. Altars in apses are dedicated to St. Bartholomew, St. Catherine, and St. Jacob. Every year, on the first Saturday after August 24 the church welcomes pilgrims who have completed a one-day walking trip over the Alps.
