After having travelled for sixteen days, staying at nine hotels, this hotel felt like a haven of peace and tranquillity. We stayed here for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer. This excellent hotel with its charming and knowledgeable owner was, in many ways; more like a private house than an hotel. Guests have access to a number... More

I was here in 2013 and nothing has changed which prove that this is a live time capsule by itself. I try to go back every year or two and is excellent if you want to unplug from the daily grind while being a part of history. There's no internet nor TV in the room. If you want something mediocre...

We stayed at this historic hotel for 2 nights in early October for our first vivt to Berchtesgaden and had a wonderful time. The room was very clean and quiet with a FANTASTIC view of the mountains and valley. The place is just feet from from the Burghof site and with the bunker actually in the building, if your into...

We are just back from our second trip to Berchtesgaden/Obersalzberg and our second stay at the Hotel Zum Turken and I can’t say enough about it. My wife and I have truly come to love the place. The hotel is most famous for its proximity to the Bergof and its relevance to WWII history. If you have even a passing... More

Hotel Zum Turken Spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel with all the history that surrounds the hotel. Travel back to the 1950s when staying here no internet no TV. The view from the breakfast must be world class overlocking the Bavarian Alps and Bechtersgaden. Excellent breakfast and the owner is very hospitable and has interesting stories to tell about...

You're unlikely to stay at Hotel Zum Turken without knowing a bit about its history but while there you'll find out more about its past. As other reviews have mentioned this hotel doesn't offer conventional and, what you might think of as, up to date facilities. En-suite facilities in our room consisted of an alcove where the toilet and shower... More

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...
