    Why Go There?

    09:00- 17:00

    Pure nature and fresh air! Visit the only alpine national park in Germany, Berechtesgaden, right on the border of Austria. This national park was declared a "biosphere reserve" by UNESCO in 1990.

    There are many different ways to explore the park. You can go for a walk through the valley, or if you are looking for something more adventurous, you won't regret accepting the challenge to hike to one of the  mountaintops for unparalleled scenic views. All of the hiking trails are about 230 km in length and can also be traversed by bicycle. The central mountain massif of the Berchtesgaden Alps is the Watzmann. With a height of 2713 meters, it is the third highest mountain in Germany.

    Particulary interesting are the guided walking tours for adults and the special tours geared towards children.

    You can also enjoy a ride on one of their eco-friendly passenger boats, which operate on Berchtesgaden's pristine lake, Königssee.
