“Take the easy way up!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

A short bus ride from Berchtesgaden takes you to the Konigsee and Jennerbahn. Having previously enjoyed a boat trip on the beautiful lake, we decided to take a trip on the cable car to the higher slopes of the Jenner. At this time of year we went straight from buying tickets on to the 2-seater cable car for the journey up the hillside. We went straight to the top where we found a lovely gift shop and self-service restaurant. Although there was snow lying outside it was warm enough to sit on the outside terrace and enjoy the view. However, the path to the top of the mountain was still deep in snow and no one was venturing out!
To find more walking opportunities we took the cable car down to the lower halt from where the snow had melted. The views all around were quite stunning, and Kehlstein Haus was visible on the summit of the neighbouring peak. Very reluctant to return to the valley!

“Worth a visit on a clear day”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

I've been to Mt,Jenner and Konigsee, The view was great at Jenner but was too cloudy on the top. You can take a boat trip at Konigsee to enjoy the scenery of mountains and clear blue lake.

“Serene picturesque Photographers delight”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

If nature attracts you this is the place - Mountains with Snow glistening in the warm summer sun, manicured miles of lush green meadows, crystal clear river fed by melting ice, lush green coniferous tress on the mountain slopes with patches of snow, miles and miles of crystal clear lake Konigsee with a deep blue reflection of the clear sky - what else would one want to enjoy a vacation in Berchtesgaden. Visit the World famous Salt mines and head to Konigsee, take the boat ride to St. Barthlomeow and/or the cable car to Jennerbahn or the Eagle's Nest where once Hitler finalized his war strategies while huddling with his confidente in summer. Plenty of food, beer, photography, memorabilia.
Just a caution - towards the evening time after 4:30PM the bus gets crowded and they even offload you - then you need to call a cab that would cost you 7-8 Euros but for such a popular tourist spot, they could run more busses to the railway station.
