We went on a trip for my 21st to Munich for Oktoberfest and decided to trek 3 hours there and 3 back to see the infamous, Eagles Nest atop a... More

This is a great place for photos. The views are breathtaking. There is some walking, but not too intense. This was a great place to spend the day. You can ride the Jennerbahn or go for a boat ride on the Konigsee. There are also very good shops that give you a feel of the local culture.

Jennerbahn has so much to offer. We came back twice in three days! And it has become the highlight of our trip in Berchtesgaden. Cable car with ever changing views overcame my fear of heights. The slow ride up to the top could be intimidating for someone afraid of heights like me. But the changing view at different height provided... More

Fortunately it was a beautifully clear sunny day so we had amazing views. If you make it to the top you can get stunning photos. I even got an extreme telephoto shot of Salzburg Castle which I'm posting.

The scenery is gorgeous, especially on a beautiful, sunny and warm autumn day. The colours are spectacular. Make sure to stop in their new visitor centre / museum Haus der Berge. Great introduction.

Frightening ascent and descent to the top, but well worth it! This was probably one of, if not the most, favorite day trips! The ride up and down the mountain were scary for me because of my fear of heights, but close your eyes and go! You won't be sorry you did. The views from the top are simply stunning!

Fantastic views over National Park, Konigssee, Berchtesgaden on a clear day. Only two persons per gondola on Jennerbahn so limits the crowds at the top but it means there may be a queue at the bottom (If you are staying at the Alpenhof, bus at 09.51 goes direct to the lift). Many routes to walk down but recommend Konigsbach path... More

As a whole the park is better than its parts and provides a lot of things to see and amenities, you can spend a few or a couple of days there. Mountains, lakes and views. I see why people returns here.

There are numerous hiking trails in the park. Easily accessible and well-marked. You can basically walk from town to town in this part of the world. Wonderful.

When booking our holiday in Berchtesgaden, we never realised how stunning an area it is! The views are simply amazing. We learned all about the Nationsl park at the fabulous Haus der Berg museum & experienced the park first hand on our trip to Konigsee(amongst others). The park is very well managed & really has some of the most stunning... More
