We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Zum Turken. It was one of the most memorable places I have ever stayed. The room (double with balcony overlooking Berchtesgaden) was meticulously clean and well-arranged (little Ritter chocolates, the hotel’s name embroidered on the blankets), as was the entire hotel. The balcony had a beautiful view but was definitely the most costly... More

If you are looking for a posh 5-star hotel, this is not the place. The accommodations are basic - our room had creaky beds and a curtain for a bathroom door. However, the hotel is a wonderful treasure with historic significance in WWII. It is spotlessly clean and has a breathtaking view of the mountains. We enjoyed both the breakfast... More

My husband, son and I had the pleasure of staying here last week. The rooms are comfortable, giving you a true European feeling. No Internet, no TV, just a beautiful quiet atmosphere. We had a wonderful balcony overlooking the valley. In the evening after going into town for dinner, we sat in an adorable bar area, full of many amenities... More

We stayed sometime ago. We hope our review is posted. There is nothing quite like this hotel to stay in given its history. But what makes this place special is its host. Mrs Scharfenberg. Her story as owner and as a host managing the place herself you won't find such an interesting story attached to a hotel anywhere in Germany.... More

My husband and I stayed here in early June . We got the last room luckily. If you are looking for a place without city sounds the aggravation of the internet and tv. This is the place to really get away. We went for the atmosphere and history since we are ww2 history buffs this is the place. We couldn't... More

Our trip to Germany was a wonderful experience and one my wife and I will not soon forget. At the top of my list of great places is the town of Berchtesgaden and this is precisely because of the ZUM TURKEN on the Obersalzburg. The hotel has amazing views and tremendous History. Having never stayed in a traditional German Guesthouse,... More

We spent two nights there in early May. The rooms are large and comfortable and the views are breathtaking. Make sure you have a look at the pictures in the lobby. This hotel has a fascinating history and there is much to see in the area. Take the high road drive.

This is one of the most unique hotels you will ever stay in! The history alone is so compelling but the hospitality and charm are equally over the top. Be sure to ask about the unique history of the zum Tuerken itself and things Frau Sharfenberg's family did in the run up to WWII to ensure it exists for all... More

Spent two nights at the Zum Turken in October of this year and had a wonderful time. Frau Scharfenburg was a gracious host and continues to offer visitors the same great experience that her late mother did. The view from the Turken is fantastic and it's surrounded by so much history on all sides. We could view the historic Eagles... More

There's no denying why people go there: the scenery and history. Combine that with fine German hospitality at Zum Tuerken and it's a perfect time away from everything since this place is a time capsule. Miss Scharfenberg now continues the tradition from her mother and you won't be disappointed. Reminder: please don't act like you're in the USA and respect... More
