Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #1: The Eagle’s Nest

About the Eagle’s Nest

Eagle’s Nest is the scenic spot in Berchtesgaden that was used to be a social and official government gatherings venue of the Nazi Party in the early 20th century. Its name, “Eagle’s Nest” or “Kehlsteinhaus,” was coined by a French ambassador André François-Poncet, who described the alike experience during a rare diplomatic meeting with Hitler.

Perched at an altitude of 1,834 m (6,017 ft) above sea level in the ridges and subpeak of the Hoher Göll, the Eagle’s Nest provides visitors a scenic overlooking view of the town of Berchtesgaden below. With that height, can you imagine how much awe you can have from the sceneries left and right of the Eagle’s nest?

What is the view from the Eagle’s Nest?

In the Eagle’s Nest, one of the most scenic spots in Berchtesgaden, an epic view of the entire Berchtesgaden Alps landscape awaits. During a clear sunny day, the sights stretch from Mount Jenner and Konigssee to the city of Salzburg in Austria, about 25 kilometers away north of Berchtesgaden.

The towering peaks of Watzmann, Hochkalter, and Rotpalfen will only be just on your eye level. It’s gonna make you feel that you’re on top of the world!

You will just see the magnificent skyline of the Northern Limestone Alps that scrapes the horizon. The spectacular transition of landform south to north, from rugged mountainous to hilly and to flats, will amaze you.

You can enjoy the sceneries from the Eagle’s Nest with the beers and snacks served in the restaurant on the site. There are Eagle’s Nest historical tours you can join to make your stay filled with learnings too.

Eagle's Nest, Berchtesgaden, Germany

How to go to the Eagle’s Nest?

Starting from Berchtesgaden Hbf, take the RVO Bus 838 to get to Busbahnhof Kehlsteinhaus (See Google Maps location here). Once you arrive, board an RVO bus 849 that will bring you to the Eagle Nest’s upper parking area in the mountain. At the upper parking area, you will then find a tunnel that will lead you to the Eagle’s Nest.

Note that you can only bring your car to Busbahnhof Kehlsteinhaus (bus stop). The road to the upper parking area is closed to private traffic. However, there are parking spaces near the bus stop where you can leave your car while visiting Eagle’s Nest. Overall, the cost would be:

  • 28 EUR for a 20-minute bus ride + access to the elevator from the tunnel
  • 5 EUR for Parking (coins only!)

You can stay for how long as you want in the Eagle’s Nest but keep in mind that the busses run every 25 minutes only from 8:30 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon. The suggested length of stay in the Eagle’s Nest is 1 to 2 hours. However, some travelers enjoy being there so much that they have spent more than that.

Alternatively, you can hike from the Busbahnhof Kehlsteinhaus to the Eagle’s Nest. The hiking trail has 848 meters elevation gain, and it would take up an hour and a half to finish. The track is rocky and uneven, however. Proper footwear is recommended.

The Eagle’s Nest is open from the middle of May until the end of October, depending on the weather. Visit the official website of Kehlsteinhaus for announcements before going – this is IMPORTANT.

You should also see if the weather is clear up around Eagle’s nest through this live camera. That way, you will know if there’s a view or all fog at the top.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #2: Kneifelspitze

About Kneifelspitze

Suppose you are on the Eagle’s Nest. In that case, Kneifelspitze is the smaller mountain you will see in front of the entire Untersberg massif – the northernmost mountain range section of Berchtesgaden Alps. It has a peak that reaches a height of 1189 meters above sea level (380 meters prominence), overlooking the Berchtesgaden Valley below.

Kneifelspitze is located northeast of Berchtesgaden, roughly 3 kilometers away from the town center. Similar to Eagle’s nest, it has a restaurant (Paulshütte) at the top that lets you fill your tummy while enjoying the picturesque view from its sunny terrace.

What is the view from Kneifelspitze?

Slightly freestanding from the Untersberg Massif, Kneifelspitze offers hikers and travelers a much closer and dramatic view of the Berchtesgaden town and Watzmann Mountain to the south. Kneifelspitze is also the favorite spot of the photographers who want to capture the spectacular crescent ridge formed by Watzmann Mountain peaks: Kleiner Watzmann, Watzmannkinder, and Mittel Spitze.

Kneifelspitze, Berchtesgaden, Germany

How to go to Kneifelspitze?

Unfortunately, there are no cableways and bus rides to Kneifelspitze yet. It can only be reached through two hiking trails. Both start from two famous Berchtesgaden tourist attractions: Salzbergwerk Berchtesgaden (Salt Mine) and the picturesque Wallfahrtskirche Maria Gern (Church).

From Berchtesgaden bus station, ride the bus 837 to get to Maria Gern Church and bus 840 to arrive at Salt Mine.

Below is the route I made to guide you to go to Kneifelspitze from Maria Gern Church. It is an intermediate-level trail that would take you an hour and 17 minutes to finish. I choose to use the winding path west of Kneifelspitze since it is not that steep compared to other routes.

And if you will be coming from Salt Mine, here’s the route you can take. Basically, it’s almost the same with the hiking trail from Maria Gern Church. The only difference is: this route is longer and through the added part of the trail passes by a spot called Marxenhöhe.

Marxenhöhe is another spot in Kneifelspitze where you can have almost similar but slightly lower views than that from the mountain’s summit. There is a bench and a swing in Marxenhöhe where you can rest while enjoying a scenic view of Berchtesgaden and Watzmann.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #3: Königssee

About Konigssee

Konigsee is not only one of the scenic lakes in Germany, but it’s also 3rd deepest and cleanest in the country. This natural lake was formed during the last ice age. Today, Konigssee is measured 8 kilometers long, 1 kilometer wide, and with a 20-kilometer perimeter.

Here are the most fascinating facts I learned about Konigssee:

  • Konigssee in direct translation to English means King’s Lake.
  • The lake is so clean, with quality almost at drinking level.
  • Only electric-powered passenger ships, rowing and pedal boats are only allowed in the lake since 1909 as the government want to preserve the cleanliness of the lake.
  • The towering rock walls all around the lake creates an echo that reverberates up to seven times.
  • Konigssee has only one island at its northern tip called Christlieger. It has the statue of saint John of Nepomuk, patron of against the dangers of the water.
  • It also has a peninsula in the middle, called Hirschau, where the iconic church of Saint Bartholomew is located.

What is the View in Konigssee?

Konigssee is a magical lake that words can’t give justice to its beauty. On a clear sunny day, you will see its crystal clear emerald water glitters as the sunlight hits the surface and the towering limestone mountains reflected on it. Absolutely, a picture of what heaven probably looks like: idyllic, peaceful, and serene.

At the Konigssee’s western shore, almost midway through the lake, we see the Hirschau peninsula where the famous pilgrimage Saint Bartholomew church is. Behind it rises the longest mountain face in the Eastern Alps, the face of Watzmann Mountain. Their image mirrored on the clear, glittering lake surface is absolutely breathtaking scenery to behold.

Passing by Konigssee’s Hirschau Peninsula to the south, the Schrainbachwasserfall cascade down to the lake through a limestone wall covered by lush vegetation. In the photos, shot from afar, Schrainbachwasserfall looks like a white stick punctured to the emerald surface of Konigssee.

Konigssee is at its most picturesque state during autumn when the golden colors of fall foliage create otherworldly sceneries in the lake. Regardless, it’s best to see and visit during a clear sunny day when the colors of the lake, forest, and mountains are bursting vividly to your eyes.

Königssee, Berchtesgaden, Germany

How to go to Konigssee?

Visiting Konigssee from Berchtesgaden is easy. Just ride the bus 841 or 842 from the Berchtesgaden railway station; you’ll be there in less than 10-15 minutes. The buses leave the station twice an hour, starting from 05:50 a.m. until 7:15 p.m.

Alternatively, you can hike Berchtesgaden to Obersee, and you would only be walking for less than an hour.

Konigssee has no hiking trails along its perimeter. You can only visit other parts of the lake like the Hirschau peninsula, Kassel (Alpine Pasture), and Salet (the link to Obersee) through the electric motorboats or hiking the mountains surrounding Konigssee.

For boat rides, you can buy tickets on the counters near the lake’s docks. You can check the official website of Konigssee for the prices, schedules, online tickets, and announcements.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #4: Jenner Aussichtsplattform

About Jenner Aussichtsplattform

Jenner is the mountain you can visit from Berchtesgaden, where more scenic views await you. It is a part of Göll massif, similar to the ridge where the Eagle’s Nest is built. This mountain does not only has scenic views, but ski resorts and lovely Alpine pastures to have fun during winter and explore when it is summer.

There is an Aussichtsplattform (observation deck) situated 1874 meters above sea level at the summit of the mountain. You can view almost the entire Berchtesgaden National Park when facing Watzmann Massif to the west. Jenner Aussichtsplattform is dubbed “The Royal Look” because it overlooks the King’s Lake (Konigssee) below.

What’s the view in Jenner Aussichtsplattform?

In Mount Jenner’s observation deck, you will see a panoramic view of Watzmann Massif together with almost the entire length of Konigssee below. Some even say that the view of Watzmann and Konigssee from Jenner is incredibly incomparable to other viewpoints in the region.

See the moving electric motorboats drifting in the lake, or admire the massive rock walls of Konigssee in front of you in Jenner Aussichtsplattform. A closer view of the rugged peaks of the Berchtesgaden Alps is there for you to behold.

If you are lucky, you can witness a sea of clouds over Konigssee, which makes a far more spectacular scene compared to that’s without it. The sea of clouds is an overcast layer of clouds, that is when viewed from above, resembles a sea turning the mountain peaks into islands. This phenomenon shall make you feel like you’re in heaven!

By the end of this post, you will see photos of the sea of clouds in Berchtesgaden.

Jenner Aussichtsplattform, Berchtesgaden, Germany

How to go to Jenner Aussichtsplattform?

Similar to Konigssee, visiting Jenner starts at Schönau am Königssee:

  1. From Berchtesgaden train terminal, ride on either bus 841 or bus 842 to reach Schönau am Königssee.
  2. When you arrive in Schönau, look for the massive car park (north of Konigssee Dock) and walk eastward.
  3. By then you shall see the cable cars moving up to the mountains. Follow its direction and you shall arrive to Jennerbanh.
  4. Ask for a card/ticket with entire ascent package to the top station. (Check prices or book online tickets from Jennerbanh website)
  5. On the top station you now start the “easy” 15-minute hike towards the summit and to the observation deck.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #5: Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen

About Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen

Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen is a scenic lookout in the Gotzen Mountains you can visit from Berchtesgaden. This is a lookout situated at an altitude that’s approximately 1740 meters above sea level and 1125 meters above the surface of Konigssee. It is one of the hidden gems in the Berchtesgaden Alps you need to visit and see because of the unique view of Konigssee and Watzmann seen from it.

What’s the view in Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen?

In Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen, you will see on an eye-level without any obstruction the Watzmann Mountain, the longest mountain face in the whole Eastern Alps. The entire face of Watzmann Mountain will be in front of you. This lookout also gives you a downward view of the Hirschau peninsula, where the Church of Saint Bartholomew is.

On a clear sunny day, you will clearly see the spectacular color gradient created by the peninsula meeting and the lake’s waters…

If you will notice, the peninsula seems like molten earth that flowed from the mountains and solidified when it touched the water. Don’t you agree? Well, it’s all just imagination.

How to go to Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen?

Hiking is the only means of reaching Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen. You can find several hiking trails to get to Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen. However, almost all of them will require intermediate to expert hiking skills.

To save you time and energy from inclined routes, I suggest that you start your hike from two of Jenner’s cable car stations. Within 4 to 5 hours, you should be already in Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen to see the epic view of Konigssee and Watzmann.

You can try the following:

  1. Jennerbanh-Mittelstation to Feuerpalfen (round trip)
  2. Jennerbanh-Mittelstation to Feuerpalfen to Obersee (end in Salet)
  3. Jennerbanh-Top station to Feuerpalfen to Jennerbanh-Mittelstation
  4. Jennerbanh-Top station to Feuerpalfen to Obersee (end in Salet)

Suppose you plan to see two more scenic spots in Berchtesgaden when you visit Feuerpalfen. In that case, I suggest that you continue the hike/trail to Obersee. Here are two sample routes I made from Komoot to give you an idea of what the routes would look like:

Before you follow this route, I highly recommend you check/consult the tourism office first to verify if there are no current path restrictions. This is very important.

When you decide to hike to Feuerpalfen, remember a mountain hut (Gotzenalm) located near Aussichtspunkt Feuerpalfen. You can spend a night or rest for a while in the cabin if you feel you need rest. Here is the website of Gotzenalm to learn more. See this link to Google Maps to see where Gotzenalm is.

Lastly, if you plan to end your hike with a boat ride in Konigssee (from Salet) back to the town, you must secure a one-way trip from the ticket counters before hiking. Currently, we can only book roundtrip tickets online for boat rides in Konigssee.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #6: Obersee

About Obersee

Obersee is another scenic place you can visit from Berchtesgaden. This lake, with a size a tenth of Konigssee, lies southeast of the larger lake. Between Konigssee and Obersee, a moraine exists. It created speculations that these two lakes were once a single lake before.

Obersee, in German, means Upper Lake. The lake’s name makes sense when you compare the surface elevation of Obersee and Konigssee. It is approximated that Obersee’s water surface elevation is 10 meters higher than Konigssee’s.

The lake was never inhabited Because of its remote location nestled in a closed valley and another lake. However, you can find a small cabin called Fischunkelalm, that’s only occupied during the hiking season.

What’s the view in Obersee?

The view in Obersee is idyllic similar to Konigssee. However, because its location is almost enclosed by mountains, it entails even more stunning views you must see. On a clear sunny day, you’ll see a spectacular 180-degree view of otherworldly panoramic scenery created by the calm surface of the lake reflecting the mountains surrounding it.

Seems that by just looking in Obersee, visitors would be taken into a heavenly realm instantly.

It’s tough to explain the view in words. But, this one should at least present a bit of what you’ll experience in Obersee. Feel free to move the 360-image below in all directions!

The golden hour during autumn is just the perfect time and the perfect season to visit Obersee. It’s Shangri-lah, absolutely!

How to go to Obersee?

There are two ways you can get to Obersee. The first is by hiking (you may refer to the route I prepared), second is through the boat ride across Konigssee. Starting from Schönau am Königssee, buy a ticket for a boat ride that goes straight to Salet. After a few minute hike to the east, you should arrive at Obersee.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #7: Röthbach Waterfall

About Röthbach Waterfall

At the corner of the valley where Obersee is, we find Röthbach Waterfall – another scenic spot we can visit from Berchtesgaden. Röthbach Waterfall is the largest waterfall in Germany which has a vertical drop that measures 470 meters. It remains spared from the flocks of tourists due to its inconvenient location.

The graceful Röthbach waterfall is fed by water from the peaks above it. Aside from after it rains, the large thundering and cascading water in Röthbach waterfall occur mainly during spring as the snow melts.

What’s the view in Röthbach Waterfall?

Röthbach waterfall gracefully creates a spectacular white cascading line in the middle of the panoramic mountain walls all around. You will be passing an alpine pasture along your way to Röthbach waterfall, though. With sounds of cowbells ringing, mountain breeze, and the waterfall crashing down the valley, you could expect a blissful and awe-inspiring nature-hike.

The waterfall can be seen as far as Obersee. In fact, some travelers even more like the view of Röthbach waterfall from Obersee. Nevertheless, being the highest waterfall in Germany, Röthbach waterfall should be a destination on your bucket list.

There should be a small, calm lake just before you reach the bottom of the cascades. You can come close to the lake and use it to create epic mirror shots of the Röthbach waterfall.

Röthbach Waterfall, Berchtesgaden, Germany

How to go to Röthbach Waterfall?

Röthbach Waterfall lies east of Obersee. To get to this scenic spot, you must take the boat ride across Konigssee to Salet. From Salet, you hike for 40 minutes (suppose you don’t stop walking), passing Obersee to Fischunkelalm. You should already see Röthbach Waterfall by the time you reach Fischunkelalm.

Alternatively, the Röthbach waterfall can also be reached by hiking over the Göhl mountains for athletic travelers. Check out the route I created I showed you earlier.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #8: Hintersee

About Hintersee

Hintersee is another scenic location, a picture-perfect lake you can easily visit from Berchtesgaden. It is a 16-hectare lake on the border of Berchtesgaden National park near Ramsau that you will also love to see. Since 1850, it has attracted numerous painters and photographers to capture its idyllic post-card image.

Famous landscape painters such as Wilhelm Busch, Carl Rottmann, Friedrich Gauermann, and Ferdinand Waldmüller have made Hintersee the subject of their masterpieces. In fact, many consider Hintersee a true romantic lake because of its character and absolutely mesmerizing views.

What’s the view in Hintersee?

At the northern shore of Hintersee, you facing south shall be spellbound by the stunning image of the lake reflecting Berstesgaden towering peaks. Hintersee has these emerald crystal clear water and wildly tumbled rocks that seem to suggest that there’s a mystical creature living in it – like a playground of the fairies.

The scenery in Hintersee turns even more alluring and spellbinding during early mornings. During this time, sunlight illuminates the mist over the lake, making fairytale-like scenery we see in movies. The mysterious-looking forest near Hintersee even deepens the story that the lake entails.

Indeed, you should not miss seeing Hintersee, especially during dawn when the Hochkalter and Blaueiskar peaks are slowly painted with golden colors by the rising sun. The image of the mountains reflected on the surface of Hintersee is one absolute spectacle to see.

Hintersee, Berchtesgaden, Germany

Visiting Hintersee from Berschtesgaden is easy. From Berchtesgaden, all you need to do is board the RVO bus 846 that goes back and forth Berchtesgaden – Ramsau – Hintersee. The total travel time must be around 30 minutes or less.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #9: Wimbachklamm

About Wimbachklamm

The mountains and the lakes aren’t just the beautiful places you can visit from Berchtesgaden. In this region, there’s a spectacle even in between the rocks! Near the mountaineering village of Ramsau, we can find the gorgeous 200-m long gorge, Wimbachklamm – the next Berchtesgaden scenic spot we will talk about.

Wimbachklamm is a gorge created by the Wimbach torrent that has been continuously carving the Watzmann Massif for more than 50 million years now. Exploring Wimbachklamm and seeing the fossils embedded on the gorge’s wall will transport you back in time as far as the Late Triassic period. That was the time when some parts of Europe were still submerged under the sea!

Boardwalks and footbridges in Wimbachklamm will be your path to the million-year wonders awaiting you in the gorge.

What’s the view in Wimbachklamm?

Wimbachklamm is a natural masterpiece. The views inside the gorge aren’t just some rock formations, but they’re spectacular carvings of nature where water flowing out of them. The sceneries along the wooden trail in Wimbachklamm turn magical when the sunlight enters the gorge. The plants and grass on the rocks glow during that moment, making the entire place so pleasant to behold.

The milky Gatorade blue water rushing in the middle of the gorge should captivate your senses too.

Wimbachklamm, Berchtesgaden, Germany

How to go to Wimbachklamm?

Wimbachklamm should be only within walking distance (10 minutes to the south) when you reach the Wimbachbrücke.

Berchtesgaden Scenic Spot #10: Eiskapelle (Ice Chapel)

About Eiskapelle

Last but not least scenic place on this list to visit from Berchtesgaden is the spectacular Ice Chapel or Eiskapelle – the natural wonder that’s different from all that’s mentioned above!

Eiskapelle is Germany’s permanent ice field located below the eastern face of Watzmann mountain. It is also the lowest-lying snowfield in the Alps, situated at an altitude only about 800 meters to a kilometer high.

It turns out to be more than just a tourist destination and a thought-provoking natural wonder that exists all year round. That is, especially during summer when the snow line in the alps rises above 2000 meters.

Though Eiskapelle stays frozen all year round, it is not yet considered a glacier but rather just a firn – the intermediate stage between snow and a glacier. Basically, it is a form of ice that has been left over from the past winter and has been recrystallized into a denser substance.

Based on some studies and observations, Eiskapelle stays in occurrence because it’s yearly fed with a lot of snow from the avalanches coming from Watzmann’s peaks. Nevertheless, what’s really interesting about Eiskapelle is the views beneath or inside its cavity.

What’s the view inside Eiskapelle?

The view inside Eiskapelle is entirely otherworldly. The ice walls and ceiling of Eiskapelle’s cavity have enigmatic appearances created by its unique melting process. If you enter and go slightly inside the Eiskapelle, you will see the shapes and forms of the melting ice emphasized by the light from the outside.

Since Eiskapelle is reinforced by enormous avalanches every winter and reduced every summer, its shape, size, and location will forever vary.

Eiskapelle, Berchtesgaden, Germany

If you want to go inside, please remember that Eiskapelle is always in danger of collapsing. There are already people who have died because they were buried alive in ice. Be cautious when entering, and don’t go so much farther inside.

How to go to Eiskapelle?

The only way you can go to Eiskapelle or Ice Chapel is through the hiking trail to the mountains that start from Hirschau Peninsula, where the church of Saint Bartholomew is located. You can start from Schönau and then get a boat ride in Konigssee that stops in “St. Bartholomä.” From there, you can now begin the 1-hour-and-30-minute hike to Eiskapelle.
