We live in Munich, and enjoy exploring the Bavarian countryside on weekends. This is the kind of hotel where you can definitely drive for the weekend, and just unwind. There are lots of great hikes in the region, and mountain biking trails, and other attractions such a the salt mines, for children. I had a hiking tour with the hotel... More

This is my second stay at the hotel (previously an Intercontinental), location and view are very nice, dinner at JOHANN GRILL (out at the verandah) is spectacular while sunsets, food was good. I loved the book collections at the library, the atmosphere and the decoration. Would come back again!

This is a beautiful hotel in the mountains! On a clear day you can see the Eagle's Nest! The breakfast buffet here is also very good with lots of different jams and butters. The staff here for the most part is very friendly. We were told to stop stretching in the lobby though. That was sort of odd since there... More

We've visited this hotel for leisure on a one-night weekend. The whole resort is stunning - nestled at the Obersalzberg, exactly at the location where the house of Hermann Goering was placed during nazi time. Let's start with the negative - the welcome was not very 5* like. We've had to wait at our car for nearly 15 minutes, until... More

Stayed at the Kempinski for 5 nights on return home from Croatia. Lovely hotel, good sized comfortable rooms, beautiful setting with stunning view from room, grounds, restaurant and terraces.

Great Hotel built near a location with a dark History but never the less interesting. The service was simply outstanding. The value for money for coffee and cake was very good.

The Kempinski Berchtesgaden is beautifully located. Quietly nestled above the city of Berchtesgaden with a great view of the surrounding mountains and the "Berchtesgadner Land". The hotel is of a coily modern design with a discernible local touch. (Staff is wearing local bavarian dress). Regarding the staff: we felt welcome all the time. Everybody was very friendly and attentive and... More

We stayed here for a weekend getaway and it was simply amazing. The view when you wake up in the morning is breathtaking and the location is beautiful. The rooms are as suspected Kempinski like gorgeous. The surrounding area is the best area to go hiking! All in one the perfect weekend getaway spot in the mountains.

Very beautiful location: 5 stars. Service also nice but the cleaning up and replacement of soap could have been better. My inly gripe is that they were rough in us for having our kids (teenagers). Pool hours are restricted, they were talked to in the lobby. Way too stuck up there. So watch out for those with families.
