    As you want to know the driving time I suppose you will have a car.

    It should not take you much longer than 1.5 hours to drive from Zell am See to Berchtesgaden (by train it would take 3 hours). The fastest way is towards Salzburg and cross the border at Hallein.

    From Berchtesgaden it takes about 15 minutes up a steep hill to the carpark at Obersalzberg. There you have to take a bus up the final slopes (no cars allowed on this final stretch of the road), this takes another 15 minutes.

    The nicest thing to do near Berchtesgaden is to carry on to Königssee which is a nice lake surrounded by high mountains. You can go on a cruise there. If you are a bit adventurous you can do a guest ride on a four men bobsleigh down the ice canal.

    There is also a National Park nearby, and there are hiking trails in the area. Gary
