This Holiday in a nutshell
  • self-guided, hotel-to-hotel walking
  • challenging walking in stunning alpine scenery
  • top notch, traditional gastronomy in high quality hotels
  • sail across the fjord-like Königssee Lake


As steeped in history and Bavarian culture as it is in alpine splendour, the walkers' paradise of Berchtesgadener Land lies enfolded within the granite embrace of the mighty Watzmann Mountain and its eight lofty companions. At their feet, tucked into the folds of the valley like an emerald in a cluster of diamonds, beguiling Lake Königssee stretches silently into the monolithic shadows beneath the ever vigilant eye of the Eagle's Nest, perched 1,200 metres above.

Nature created a region that exceeds by far the most vivid and imaginative poetic description of a fairyland.
Franz Anton von Braune – German botanist (1766-1853)

From the spa town of Bad Reichenhall where the world's oldest cable car ferries passengers 1,614 metres up the side of Predigstuhl to the Lattengebirge ridge; through the dramatic Wimbach Gorge alongside picture postcard Ramsau; to the heady high pastures (Almen) of the Jenner Mountain and the shores of Königssee, this holiday takes you along some of the most picturesque sections of the long-distance SalzAlpenSteig path which runs like a timeline thread through the salt mining history of Berchtesgaden. Along this 'white gold' trail, you travel from hidden lakes and green valley floors to where eagles soar above the summit of Germany's most beautiful mountain.
