Highly recommend visiting The Eagle's Nest and exploring the trails around the peak. The views are amazing. Stop and enjoy traditional German food and a local beer as you take in the sites. Also walk through the house and learn more about its construction and...More

Coming here can be quite the ordeal. You cannot drive yourself to the top, but rather hope on a bus and traverse to the top (this was perfect for us due to the crazy switchbacks). The views of the Alps was AMAZING! You cannot believe...More

When you visit here and reflect on the history of the site and think about the discussions and decisions that must have taken place here, it will give you pause. You have to park down near Berchtesgarden and take the bus up the 7km road...More

A spectacular place, with sun shining, recent snow on nearby mountain peaks, and views all around. Had a lovely coffee outside looking down at Konigsee, enjoying clean air.

Over the last few weeks I have visited a view mountains in the Alps, when visiting Kehlstein we experienced a cloudy mountain visit. I'm sure we missed some spectacular views but instead we got an eerie, magical experience. We started our trip with a bus...More

A very efficiently run set up. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Breathtaking views all around. You probably only need 1 1/2 there if you don't eat in the restaurant.
