Located on a mountain is this picturesque Baroque Church.
The interior is lovely and should not be missed. Reachable by car or local bus from Berchtesgaden.

The view here is a beauty. We had ten days in Berchtesgaden NP and visited this site three times in differing weather conditions. All beautiful. Doesn't require much time. Loved it. Can get crazy busy with parking along the road.

Ok at least in Germany. It is free, the road leading to the church is wide, there is almost no walking required.

The chapel is located at a very beautiful turn in the road uphill, with chalets nearby, a really nice inn (Gasthof Maria Gern), and views of magnificent mountains. Several sheep are likely to be grazing outside. If you are a hotel guest anywhere in the Berchtesgaden area, , you get a free bus pass for the 837 bus that runs more or less hourly (also other public transportation is free). . The interior of this l8th century pilgrimage chapel is elaborately stuccoed with rococo altars and other decorations including a fine metal screen. It's elaborate but tasteful, not over the top as another writer said. You don't need a lot of time---much less than an hour for the visit. I do not know of guided tours here; Just go inside. I hope it's open when you're there because it's not always open.

This is such a pretty church with a particularly old Madonna. Although there are gates preventing you from fully entering most of the time it is definitely worth taking a moment to sit inside and take in the atmosphere. There are lovely walks starting from here as well so would recommend a visit.

It was a bit cloudy the day I wound my way up the twisty roads to Maria Gern but it still offered up some great views. A tour group had just left and the church was putting out candles and winding down inside, but the door was open and the interior was impressive. If you go a bit further up the road, there are a few parking spots offering up spectacular views down the valley. There are a few spots to park in-front of the church, but if you head past the church, there are more spots to the right up the hill and left down the hill.

I stopped off in Maria Gern whilst taking a good walk around the mountains. A quant and beautifully decorative church offering peace and some cool on a very hot day.

The pilgrimage church Maria Gern is located about 3 to 4 miles from Berchtesgaden. The scenery in this area is breathtaking; it really is a pretty area. Unless there is a Mass going on there really isn't anything to see inside the church as most of the interior is blocked off; but you can go inside and see the wonderful architecture. It is nice.

This church was absolutely stunning, so were the views. We stayed in the hotel near the church and lots of tourist visited.
