Germany's only Alpine National Park Lofty, wild and majestic, "King" Watzmann (2713m) reigns over the Berchtesgadener Land as he surveys his kingdom: Berchtesgaden National Park. High mountains, deep valleys and crystal-clear alpine streams define this protected area bordering Austria. "Allow nature to remain in its natural state" is the motto of Germany’s only Alpine National Park. Berchtesgaden National Park is located in the southeast of Germany, in Bavaria and adjoining the Austrian Salzburg region. Founded in 1978, the park includes an area of 210 square kilometres and is owned by the federal state of Bavaria. In addition, the park is the core and buffer zone of the biosphere reserve Berchtesgadener Land.

Absolutely awe inspiring views of surrounding area. Still snow when we were there but not particularly cold (and I'm from Florida).Enjoyed it immensely, then proceeded to the Eagle's Nest.

We spent 9 days in Berchtesgaden and found a different hike every day. There are so many different trails it is utterly amazing. They had an unusual April snow while we were here and that just added to the beauty. Be forewarned, most Alms do...More

The Hanging Bridge trail is about 2 hours roundtrip from the parking lot to the Bridge. One could easily do this with a Jog stroller, Kids on bikes, or walking kid-paced.
