Owner description: 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.

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 not open until early May.

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.

This is one of the nicest educational centers I have ever visited. The educational movie which shows regularly was awe inspiring. There also is a really nice cafe type eating facility there that had really great food. They have put a lot of money and thought onto the facility. The people spoke english well and it was an English friendly facility. If you enjoy the outdoors this is a nice place to visit and learn about a relatively new German National Park.

A place of great historical importance, unfortunately, the wrong ideology.
the place from which you can see on a clear day more than 100 kilometers in distance, beautiful landscape, and above all magnificent architectural feat for the time 60 years ago. roads carved in stone, a tunnel of 120 meters horizontally carved in the rock, and also 120 meters vertically, and with it a lift which is undamaged and in perfect condition.
