This is Germany's only alpine National Park (established in 1978) providing protection for area mountain ranges, natural lakes and much unspoiled grounds around the southeast corner of Bavaria and the border with Austria.

During a recent visit, we spent a few days in the Berchtesgaden area and enjoyed time spent on Königssee and Obersee (lakes) as well as Janner (peak) by way of Jannerbahn. We very much enjoyed the boat ride on Königssee, light hikes along Obersee as well as a separate day hiking the grounds between the Jannerbahn Upper and Middle Stations.

The trails are very well signposted and easy to follow using basic maps as well as Google Maps. Sighted a snake, couple of frogs, numerous birds and butterflies as well as interesting plant life during our September visit. The views were very impressive on the day. It was sunny with few clouds which helped quite a bit on the day.

Overall, we very much enjoyed our limited time in the Berchtesgaden National Park. The scenery and alpine environs are quite remarkable here, leaving us with much interest to return and explore further into the park at some point in the future.

A very nice area with a couple of beautiful lakes and houses. We took the boat on the lake and took a hike from the far end. On the way back we took the boat to a restaurant half way back as well. Can get crowded in peak season

The park offer really nice hikes and spectacular scenery. Every body knows that Königssee is a must... but I also recommend a hike around Jenner and Wimbachklamm gorge as well.

Having visited Garmisch Partenkirchen last year, Berchtesgaden is easily equally beautiful with so much to offer. Wonderful hikes, walks and explorations. Beautiful lakes, mountains and valleys. Do your research on TripAdvisor and find all the things you would like to see. We loved it here.

It's one of the best areas for hiking in Germany offering several difficulty levels to select from within the park area.

The nationalpark Berchtesgaden is a nature gem in Germany, but you won´t come far without money.

The most popular gateway into the national park for tourists is by walking the famous "Wimbachklaam" waterfalls, before continuing into the park (2€ entrance).

However, there are a lot of hiking trails around this area, so not everywhere you have to pay for entrance. However, if you come by car - you´ll have to pay for parking everywhere from my experience.

I tried some of the more "off road" trails, to get away from the tourist crowds and try to find some wildlife. The nature is awesome, but many places are somewhat damaged from all the tourists visiting, and I was sad to find garbage several places in the woods.

Take the boat tour through Lake Konnigsee to hear the echoes of the trumpet! This water is cold but it is so gorgeous to view and take in. This was a real mindfulness meditative moment for us as a family. We were able to "stop and smell" the sites and sounds of the Alps here. This was one of our favorites stops in all of Bavaria nex to the Grosser Arber.

Berchtesgaden Nation Park is truest awe-inspiring. It is beautiful, tranquil, and serene. I felt as though I had walked into a painting.

Amazing scenery. Sitting in the sunshine by the lake, eating fresh milk, cheese and speck from the chalet at the end of the valley was a highlight.

We spent the entire day here, taking the 1st of three lifts at 10 am and returning by 4 pm. The sights are stunning on a sunny day. Having said that, it could be much better:
- on the first level, there are hiking trails. A nice activity - but they are poorly marked, the area is under construction and there is sheep poop everywhere;
- on the 3rd level, there is the ice cave, a movie about the park and a walk on the glacier. Nice experience, but we saw many people wearing sandals, flip flops, & shorts. In fact, the area is prone to slips and falls, and can be dangerous. There were no emergecny personnel present & I (for one) was shocked to see this.
Overall, we recommend this as an all day activity on a sunny day. Hopefully, the AT government will improve the cleanliness and the safety issues.
