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.

Wow, absolutely amazing exhibition! Well designed, very informative without being boring, everything to touch and feel (Great for the children to feel the different furs and feathers of the wildlife animals!) and it even got a climax - won't tell here what it is, so I don't spoil it!!! Definitely a highlight in Berchtesgaden!!!!

We went there a bit more than an hour before closing. That was a bad idea. The exhibition is not that large but well selected and described. The "alpine mountain show" shouldn't be missed. Allow for at least two hours, better three -- particularly if you have children.

When it's too wet to get out and explore the National Park you can easily spend half a day learning about what you're missing! Excellent presentation of information and exhibits in an attractive environment, using visuals, sound and smell. Never gets too 'learning heavy', which we have found can be a turn-off for kids.

What a treat! Our kids (aged 11 & 12) absolutely loved visiting Haus der Berge, a wonderful modern museum showcasing the natural wonders of the region. It's actually quite small, but is packed with stunning exhibits that kept us entertained for hours. Lovely experience.
