This is an excursion through the Bavarian Alps and will include Obersalzberg in Berchtesgadener Land, located in the southern most tip of Bavaria, and a visit to the Königssee.
Obersalzberg is a mountainside retreat situated above the market town of Berchtesgaden in Bavaria, home to Hitler’s mountain residences the Berghof and the Kehlsteinhaus (Eagle’s Nest). The hill behind the Berghof houses elaborate tunnel systems and bunkers.
Berchtesgadener Land is a region of spectacular natural beauty. Its majestic mountains, crystal clear lakes and the unspoiled nature reserve of the Alpine National Park make this a worthwhile visit. Berchtesgaden is often associated with the Mount Watzmann (2713m), the third highest mountain in Germany, which is renowned in the rock climbing community for its east face, and a deep glacial lake called the Königssee (5.2 km²), Germany's third deepest lake.
