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 arrived in Berchtesgaden in early October and on a lovely warm day. We went to the information center only to see sign posted that Eagle's Nest was closed for the day (due to overnight snow). We still did lots of great hiking in the area and spent time in town, but were sad to not also get to see the historical site. Be sure to call in advance to see if it's open, if that is your sole reason for going.

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 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.
