Hiking, golf, tennis, summer sledding, ice-skating, cross-country and downhill skiing and snow boarding at the Gutshof and Rossfeld ski areas make Berchtesgaden a sports heaven. Both body and mind recover at the Watzmann Therme, a brand new spa facility.
Immersed in centuries of history, Berchtesgaden is surrounded by majestic mountains atop one of which is the “Eagle’s Nest”. Deep below ground the visitor is transported into the fairy tale world of the Salt Mines.
The historical town centre boasts decorated façades, churches and the Royal Palace. Perched on a hillside is the famous pilgrimage church of Maria Gern, a Baroque jewel set in an exquisite alpine jewel box.
