I discovered the Predigtstuhlbahn several years ago, and have gone back every year since then on my annual trip to Berchtesgaden over the Christmas holidays. It is very easily accessible by public transportation from Berchtesgaden. The trip up the mountain in the gondola is fun,...More

When you want to enjoy your day in the fresh air, this is the place to be. Take a ride up with the lift as you enjoy the view of Bad Reichenhall ..without this ride,your holiday is not a holiday. I highly recommend it.

Hello, you can use the bus Nr. 841 from Berchtesgaden till the busstation "Tiroler Tor". Now you have a walk about 5 minutes to the cable car. Follow the red signs with "Predigtstuhlbahn". See you Predigtstuhlbahn.
