“Especially worthwhile if you understand German”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

This royal residence, in a former monastery, is worth visiting, especially if you understand German. It can only be visited on a guided tour, only in German, though English notes are available. The guide gives a very interesting history of the building and its associated people and events. Photos are not permitted. Do not miss the beautiful altarpieces by Tilman Riemenschneider in the Gothic hall.

“Solid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Loved the outer look. Did not get to visit inside as it was that time of the day - between 12 and 2:30 when EVERYTHING is closed. So sad.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

When I was in Berchtesgaden for the first time I didn't get the chance of visiting this place! I am glad i could return and visit this marvellous castle! The tour is in german, but as we started, the guide tryed his best to explain in English! As we where able to understand a bit of german, everything end. up well, and we where able to learn many things about this magnifcent castle and the history of those who leaved there! While staying in the área this is a MUST!

“Worth taking a look, we enjoyed it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We visited the Schloss while on a coach trip to Berchtesgaden while on holiday in Austria. We had planned on going up to the Eagles Nest but the weather was showery and very low cloud so we opted to spend all our time in the town itself.
We visited this Schloss and glad we did. It was very atmospheric and we found it interesting too. Unfortunately there is no English translation given by the tour guide, but we were given a room by room guide in the form of a leaflet which was helpful and gave the information we needed on each room.
I cannot remember how much the entrance fee was but it was not overly expensive and an interesting thing to do on a fairly inclement day.
The square where it is situated is quite picturesque too.

“Nice palace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This is a very nice palace with some interesting furniture and paintings. The guide was very friendly and made the visit also worthwhile for smaller children.
