“Amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The way up to the mountain with the bus has very nice views, and after that you will take an elevator to the top of the mountain, where the restaurant is, you can hike and have amazing views of the mountains and lakes. In general is a place with history and breathtaking views. Don't forget to mention your departure time after you leave the bus before going to the elevator.

“Fantastic view and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

This building is a historic building and offers visitors a great opportunity to view the town of Berchtesgaden as nearby Konigsee and on a clear day, you can see all the way to Salzburg, Austria. The food is also excellent.

“A piece of history mixed with wonderful sights!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

The bus ride, the tunnel to the lift and the Kehlsteinhaus itself are impressive. On a sunny day you will enjoy de views, on a cloudy its like heaven, and on a stormy it must be impressive.
Yes, it's touristic, but what do you expect !

“Incredible views and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Pros: gorgeous views, option to do a little or a lot of hiking, good restaurant, brief history given during bus ride

Cons: must give your departure time before you even go up (unpredictable how long you might stay), views may be hindered by fog

“Stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The whole thing is amazing! Specially, if you're not into hiking and mountains its a best option to get this high (over 1800m) with little effort from your side. First a fantastic bus ride up then 120m up the mountain in an elevator. I'm not entirely sure about the historical value of the place, since it is turned in to a restaurant, but for the view it is a must. And yes, there is a hiking trail up and down for those who are into it
