National Park Berchtesgaden
Listen to the birds’ voices, feel the gentian and the edelweiss, or admire the marmots and the golden eagles: the National Park Administration offers hikes on various topics throughout the year. The program includes excursions, group excursions and family adventures.

A paradise for humans and animals
Once a nature reserve was created with the National Park of nature, today he fulfills numerous tasks around nature conservation, research, recreation and education. The nature reserve with approximately 21,000 hectares is an untouched spot of nature in which humans do not intervene.

So a unique flora and fauna could recapture their place. A network of over 250 kilometers of hiking trails and climbing makes the national park a unique recreational area. The Alpine National Park is Unesco Biosphere Reserve.

Königssee and St. Bartholomä
Surrounded by mighty cliffs, it rests in one of Germany’s most imposing landscapes – emerald green and quiet – in the middle of the Berchtesgaden National Park. The fjord-like lake is eight kilometers long, up to 1.2 kilometers wide and 602 meters above sea level. With a maximum water depth of 192 meters, the water of the Königssee remains relatively cold even in midsummer.
Let hustle and bustle back on land and glide gently over the lake with one of the noiseless electric boats in the Königssee fleet. Here, in the encounter with water, mountains and sky, heart and mind open up.

St. Bartholomä, the landmark of the Königssee, can only be reached by boat. The world-famous pilgrimage church, whose first components from the 12th Century. are located on a picturesque peninsula. Next to it stands the former hunting lodge, which today serves as an idyllic inn.

In Schönau a. Koenigssee is handled very carefully with the valuable heritage of the past. The historic hipped roof ship sheds are just a sign of that. The Königsseeschiffahrt was already extremely progressive in 1909 and people thought even then of the environment. Since then, you can drive on the Königssee with electric motor boats that glide contemplatively over the lake to this day.

Eagle’s Nest – Eagle’s Nest
A historic vantage point high above the Berchtesgadener Land: From Kehlsteinhaus, visitors can enjoy an overwhelming panoramic view of up to 200 kilometers. It has been managed by the tourism region of Berchtesgaden-Königssee since 1960 and run by private tenants as a mountain inn.

The road from the Kehlstein car park to the Obersalzberg is unique in its architectural nature in the world. The huge difference in altitude is overcome with only one turn, crossing the steep northwest side of the Kehlstein twice. In 1952, the Kehlsteinstraße was closed for individual traffic and set up a regular service to the Eagle’s Nest parking lot.

The path from the parking lot to the Kehlsteinhaus turns into an experience of a special kind: a tunnel lined with natural stone leads 124 meters through the rock massif to a magnificent, brass-clad elevator. This drives in just 41 seconds further 124 meters upwards into the interior of the Kehlsteinhaus.

Salzburg – Salzburger Land
From Stoll’s Hotel Alpina you drive in about 25 minutes to Salzburg, the world-famous festival city. Here you have the opportunity to get to know the small but beautiful Mozart city of Salzburg with its many elegant shops, squares, churches and castles. Here you will also find a number of museums worth seeing, for example the newly built Museum der Moderne on the Mönchsberg or the Haus der Natur, which appeals to even the smallest of guests.

Not far away you will find on the Austrian side some beautiful, romantic lakes, such as the Mondsee, Wallersee or Fuschlsee. All of these places can be easily reached within a day, for example with our friendly bus operator Schwaiger, who not only takes day trips there, so you can relax and leave your car in the garage.
