So, I blew it and didn't allow enough time to explore the Berchtesgaden area as fully as we'd like. And I can't change accommodations to stay longer. :( I've already cut the salt mines and Eagles Nest. We will be starting our Saturday morning at Untersberg (using Salzburg pass) at 8:30am with a quick trip up. Then we'll head to Hellbrunn and hopefully, if the lines aren't too long, see the palace and trick fountains. I'm hoping to be done with Hellbrunn by 1pm. From there we will head to the Documentation Center (skipping Eagles Nest) and then to Lake Konisgee where we hope to have time to go out to Salet and hike to the waterfall. I also probably should be allowing time for getting lost, parking, etc!
I'm thinking that our family might end up splitting so that some of them can leisurely enjoy Eagles Nest and the others the lake. What is the latest ferry that you'd recommend that we be on to safely make it back for the last ferry out of Salet? I really don't want to pay for a private shuttle back or sleep under the stars! :)
I know the ideal ferry is the first one in the morning, but I'm trying to work with the little time that I have. Oh, and we'll be there on a Saturday - mid-August - so we'll be fighting crowds, too!
