This was our fifth time staying at Hotel Zum Turken. We have been to Europe 11 years in a row, and since we found this place, we've made it a point to include it every time. Monica could not be a more gracious and friendly host. We knew her mother before she passed and were thrilled when Monica chose to... More

We have just spent 2 nights at the Hotel Zum Turken and are very sad to be leaving. The house itself has quite a history and has been passed down through generations. The lovely Monika and her canine companion Liza were out gracious hosts and really make this place feel like home. The house itself is warm an welcoming and... More

For us the 'pros' far outweighed the 'cons' but it depends on what experience you are looking for. PROS: -This hotel has a unique place in history. -Well located to access other Obersalzburg sites such as the Eagle's Nest. -Spotlessly clean, and very tidy. -The proprietor, Monica, is a perfect hostess, making a friendly atmosphere -Our room (number 5) has...

Any review of this hotel must relate to its history (Google it and a wealth of information is available). Situated in magnificent scenery with great views, we had a flower lined balcony with views into the valley and Berchtesgaden. The hotel was taken over during war and used as the Nazi SS barracks as right next door to where Hitler... More

After a 36 hour flight from NZ and a 5 hour train trip from Zurich and via the Berchtesgadener Land Bahn we were shagged when we arrived at the Berchtesgaden train station. We were pretty jaded and at this stage didn't realize the town was up over the hill. because it was 3.30pm they wouldn't let us on the bus... More

First I would like to thank Monica for her hospitality, she is a wonderful host. Her grandfather and grandmother began this Hotel decades ago until Bormann took it from them...I had been to Berchtesgaden several times and stayed at various places but this place tops them all! The Hotel is very private, Monica sees to it that everyone keeps the... More

We LOVED this hotel. Not only was it beautiful, but Monica was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the hotel and area. She made a great breakfast in the morning too! We loved the room, very clean and warm. We even had a little porch with a fantastic view. I loved the little bar area stocked with peanuts and many different... More

We didn't actually stay there, my wife and I met up with a young lady traveling Europe that we met on one of our joint tours. A very nice cozy hotel, very clean and friendly staff...very helpful in giving tips and ideas of things to see in and around the area...our friend Kristy was very pleased with her stay there

Zum Turken is very basic in terms of comfort (no room tv, no wifi), but it is clean very bavarian and people do not come here for comfort anyway. People stay here because it is in the center of the III Reich 2nd headquarter after Berlin. It is 50m from the Berghof and Boremann House, 100m from Goering house and... More

I skipped the hotel review, it´s just a hotel. One of our stop that summer was Berchtesgaden. Our goal was Kehlsteinhaus. You take the bus to the entrence of the Kehlsteinhaus elevator (you have to walk 126 meter inside the moutain). Take the elevator up (126 meter) and you arrive inside the Kehlsteinhaus. It´s a restaurant att the top floor.... More
