If you hike up the Jenner, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of Lake Königssee. A viewing platform offers a great panoramic view - if you don't want to hike, you can also reach it with the Jennerbahn. Those who are hungry after the hike can buy food & drinks at the mountain station of the cable car. Paragliders taking off can also be observed here - as can marmots. This makes the Jenner definitely worth a visit!
