      We visited Berchtesgaden in June, and absolutely loved it. A few of us went for a walk and found this wooden walkway along the side of the mountain above the town. There was a shrine of some kind (Possibly Catholic) and we have been wondering what it is. The wooden walkway is in pretty bad shape, but my son-in-law and grandson walked it as far as they could. Could you please tell me what it is. Thanks

      Hi there.

      I'm just looking for a bit of advice with regard to a day trip I want to make to Berchtesgaden in March.
      I will be travelling from Salzburg by bus and ideally I would like to go to Dokumentation Obersalzberg and then on for the rest of the day to Konigssee and then back to Salzburg that evening.

      First of all is this realistic to do this in one day?
      I have no problem in being in Berchtesgaden early in the morning. Am I correct to say there is a bus directly to Dokumentation Obersalzberg?
      Is there a bus from there onwards to Konigssee or would I need to return back to Berchtesgaden and get a bus from there?
      Likewise from Konigssee do I need to return to Berchtesgaden in order to get the bus back to Sallzburg?

      Thanks in advance for any replies:-)

    • Budget bike touring, hiking, lodging,

      by nayr2012 Online Now Jun 9, 2012 at 7:20 PM


      My soon-to-be wife and I are planning to spend part of our honeymoon in Berchtesgaden in the beginning of August of this year. How accessible are hiking trailheads from town? Does anyone have any recommendations on where to stay? Many of the places seem pretty similar online. We would love to camp a night or two in the National Park. Are there places to rent camping gear? Would this be a practical option or would it be more advantageous to just do day hikes?

      We also would really like to do some bike touring. Are there vendors in town with reliable road bikes? What would be an average price per day for that time of year? Do they offer any different pick-up/drop-off for longer destination cycling? Thanks for the help!

    • A Visit to "Eagle's Nest", Berchtesgaden

      by ramot418 Online Now Jun 18, 2010 at 8:20 AM

      I'm trying to get information on visiting the "Eagle's Nest", but the information available is somewhat spread out and confusing.

      From what I can piece together:
      - Parking for my car at Obersalzberg parking lot: 2.50 Euros
      - Bus to tunnel + elevator: 15 Euros per person
      - The bus leaves the parking lot about every half hour (last bus - 16:00).

      What I don't know is:
      (1) How much time to budget for this?
      (2) Is it possible to park my car at the parking lot and to walk up to the "Eagle's Nest (avoiding the 15 Euro fee)?
      (3) If yes, how long does it take to walk to the top from the parking lot?
      (4) Are there any other options?

      by d0rsia Online Now Jul 14, 2009 at 6:41 AM

      Hi, Im planning on spending 10 days in Berchtesgaden next April. At the moment I was think of staying 2 nights in Berchtesgaden town itself to allow me to look around the town and surrounding area, aswell as walking to Obersalzburg one day.
      I was then planning on going onto a campsite which is apparently 10mins from Lake Konigssee and spending the next week there hiking trails and spending time at the lake.

      Does this sound like a sensible plan and are there any suggestions as to more activities or sights. (i.e. would you spend more time in the town maybe)
