About
Germany's only Alpine National Park Lofty, wild and majestic, "King" Watzmann (2713m) reigns over the Berchtesgadener Land as he surveys his kingdom: Berchtesgaden National Park. High mountains, deep valleys and crystal-clear alpine streams define this protected area bordering Austria. "Allow nature to remain in its natural state" is the motto of Germany’s only Alpine National Park. Berchtesgaden National Park is located in the southeast of Germany, in Bavaria and adjoining the Austrian Salzburg region. Founded in 1978, the park includes an area of 210 square kilometres and is owned by the federal state of Bavaria. In addition, the park is the core and buffer zone of the biosphere reserve Berchtesgadener Land.

We were recommended to visit here. I am fairly proficient in German, but still had a difficult time with understanding the layout of the museum, and the displays. My husband who does not know German was underwhelmed.
The one thing we did enjoy was a small hut with a video display of history of life on the mountains which we could watch in English. But there were others waiting for their turn so we could only see one.
If you don’t know German proficiently, I would skip this.

Great views of the Watzmann mountains. This place is a treasure in southern Germany. Lots of outdoors beauty and activity for people of all ages. Didn't bring my hiking boots on this trip, but sure wish I did.

Granted we undertook the Eagles nest tour on an Inclement day but what an experience. I thought our tour bus ride up the obersalzburg was a steep gradient but the special bus to the tunnel and inside lift was scary. No accidents yet though in the last 70 years.
Views from the top once the clouds broke were amazing and you felt as if you were on the top of the world, we were above the snowline in the middle of summer.You sense its recent history and the feelings still pervade through the Kelstein Haus.A must do

This house and exhibition is so well made and covers everything around you in Berchtesgaden. The movies are with english subtitles and some of them are only with nature footage and no speak. It is a very great place to visit which enlightens you.

The flow of the exhibition is also well designed and leads you into different exciting areas of the exhibition. Another great thing is that each movie has a countdown counter on it. And it is so worth it, as you actually watch the small films when you can see how long it is.

Very well done, Haus der Berge!

We drove the car to the nearby car park and were able to buy the bus tickets for next bus, which operate in every 25 mins. It was lucky the weather was good, so we could see the landscape up in the house. Walking around trail and taking photos with the ice capped mountains were amazing.

We are touring the Eagles Nest usual once or twice a month in the Sumer month. Its always a wonderful trip to the top of the Mountain and the view never gets old. The Bus Ride to the Elevator, gives you a amazing view over the surrounding mountains and the old Elevator is always fun to take to the Top.

The exhibition is housed in an elegant modern building with beautiful views over to the Watzmann and Jenner peaks. The main exhibition is very interesting and imaginatively presented, with a great balance of information and interactivity. The temporary exhibitions in the building were also excellent quality. Would recommend to anyone interested in learning about the natural and cultural history of this beautiful area.

Our private apartment's landlord recommended that we go to the Haus der Berge to experience a bit of the mountains, since we couldn't hike them in the rain. It was a very nice experience. Parking is available across the street for a very moderate amount. We spent about two hours here, especially enjoying the Vertical Wilderness Exhibition. It starts you off at the Königsee level, then the meadow level, forest and the mountaintop. There are interactive displays in German and English where you decide what type of features an animal has. While these are designed for children, I found them equally entertaining and educational. At the top there is a 12 minute film in the mountain panoramic window on a huge screen that opens to show you a view of the National Park. We had reduced admission because we had a Berchtesgaden Pass from our rental.

We parked in the car park opposite the museum, which was only €1 for two hours. Entry to the museum is crazy value for money at only €4/adult, which is discounted further if you have a Berchtesgaden card. (However, there is a minimum spend if you wish to pay by card). We had the whole museum to ourselves for our entire visit!

The staff (and reception bear!) are friendly and the exhibition itself is informative, surprising, interesting and captivating; it held our attention for a good hour. The displays have captions in both German and English (which I realised after slowly trying to translate the German!!)

Haus der Berge is far more than stuffed exhibits; the animals and birds are arranged with real thought to add interest, it's hard to spot everything the first time you look! This, combined with the bitesize information makes natural history exciting! The tunnels section with torches is inspired! (Do mind your head though!!)

Any nature lover will enjoy!
