Berchtesgaden is a town in the south-east of Bavaria that is famous for its amazing, unspoiled countryside in the “Berchtesgaden National Park“. Therefor it is a perfect place for long walks and hikes experiencing the beautiful scenery with crystal clear mountain lakes, lush meadows and wild animals. You will also get to know true Bavarian culture like the “Almabtrieb“, the ceremonial driving down of cattle from the mountain pastures into the valley in autumn, at close range.
Another highlight is the salt mine in Berchtesgaden, where you can get an exclusive insight into the history and the modern methods of salt mining. Take a seat in the mine car and – “Glück auf“, as the miners say – down it goes into the deep of the tunnel.
