“A treasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

This whole region is a world-class scenic wonderland with high peaks, peaceful valleys, spotless homes, towns, and farms, and friendly people. Be sure to see the Konigssee, drive the Rossfeld scenic road, and visit the salt mine and other attractions. The view of the Konigssee and the mountains from the Jenner mountain is well worth the fare!

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

You're on top of the world here! You're able to see all surrounding countries on a clear day from the "Kehlsteinhaus". I went back again a year later to bring my parents, they were thrilled! A must do if you're in southern Germany!

“A day in Berchtesga​den from Salzburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Before making our journey to Berchtesgaden, I had done quite a lot of research here. This place has so much to offer that you really cannot imagine finishing even your favorites in 1 day. The best way to explore this place is by your own vehicle or stay there for 2 days & move around using public transport. We had none of these so I picked my priorities & took printout of my notes.
Reaching from Salzburg:
We were staying in Salzburg & earliest bus on weekend is only at 9:15. Train is costlier & time taking. As you have to keep changing bus, buy a Tageskarte(Day ticket). I had a Bahn card 100, so just had to buy a return ticket till Austrian Border.
Eagle's Nest:
We reached around 10 at Hbf & left for Eagles nest(Bus 338). The stop is Documentation Center. As we were short of time, I planned to skip documentation center tour & made a move for Eagle's nest directly. You need to buy a separate bus ticket here. Once on Bus, it's another 15 mins ride up. Once you get down(11:30), you need to punch a return time. They suggest 2 hrs, we selected 1 hr 45 mins but were done even earlier. So on request to the Bus driver he let us board the earlier bus but had to stand our journey down. I think 1hr 30 mins is decent time if you are tight on schedule. We did explore-hike some areas & were still finished on time.
Wimbachklamm Falls:
The moment I saw the pic of this falls, I decided to go here for sure. Changing your destination, almost everytime you need to reach the Berchtesgaden Hbf. So we again came back to Hbf & took Bus 246 for the falls. The name of the stop is also Wimbachklamm, around 5th stop from Hbf. It's a 15 min walk to the falls. Before you near the gate, there is a automated machine on the right of the street to take the token tickets for the falls. If you miss it you need to come back to buy the tickets.
The falls was definitely worth the visit, with many thin streams of falls on 1 side & walk on wooden bridge on other side. We had to run back for our Bus back to Hbf.
Königssee:
We got our bus to the See on time. Reaching the stop we quickly bought our tickets for the boat (if you start your day with this spot then you may waste 45mins on the line). There are many rides but I think the shortest ride here was the best. It's cheapest & for 40 mins. believe me you would have enjoyed enough in 40 mins. They give you some briefing of the place during the ride. We selected the 55 mins ride & by time we were back we missed the connecting bus to Hbf. Thankfully we found a empty taxi on time & we were able to take last 6:15 bus to Salzburg.
The biggest bummer for this place is the Bus connection. You will not find the Buses when you want & end up waiting. The biggest tip for people using Bus here & tight on time would be to print the time table of the bus. & do make a note of the return Bus everytime you get off a spot. We were lucky to find a taxi in time else we would have ended up paying more & spending more time on train back to Salzburg.
