Bavaria's Soaring Peaks

Berchtesgadener Land & Königssee
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • single-centre walking holiday
  • rewarding routes through breathtaking scenery
  • high-quality hotel and famed Bavarian hospitality
  • sail across the fjord-like Königssee
  • quick and easy access from Salzburg


Surrounded on three sides by the mighty snow-capped peaks of the Austrian Alps, Berchtesgadener Land is almost cut off from the rest of Germany – a hidden gem in the country's south-eastern corner. At its heart, the spectacular landscapes of the Berchtesgaden National Park are centred on enchanting Königssee, a fjord-like, emerald green lake that sits serenely beneath mighty Watzmann Mountain and the rocky promontory of the Eagle's Nest. This is Germany's deepest, and purest, lake, making the views here some of the most impressive in the entire country.

This place is so beautiful and peaceful that, even on busy days, once you are out sailing on the lake or walking nearby, it doesn't feel crowded. And the silence is magical.
Situated high above the lake, the luxurious Hotel Alpenhof awaits, offering excellent Bavarian hospitality and hearty cuisine. It's the perfect base from which to explore this spectacularly beautiful region: strike out on foot to visit the Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus ), Hitler's former teahouse; or sail across the tranquil lake to the iconic pilgrims’ church of St Bartholomä to explore the Eiskapelle glacier.

PLEASE NOTE: most rooms in Austrian/German hotels are normally one large base with two mattresses/duvets. We refer to these as 'Austrian Twins' and they are locally regarded to serve requests for both double and twin bedded rooms. Separate twin beds or traditional double beds with one large mattress are rare and cannot be guaranteed.
