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...More

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...More

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.

A beautiful place to visit on a walking distance from Berchtesgaden. Wonderful hiking paths on the way with waterfalls and Maria Gern Church is lovely. The restaurant serves really good food and wines, both glass and bottles, so we really enyojed our time here!
